I have one hell of a couple of weeks. I am now officially OLD....ok well maybe not old but I have hit my 30's. And despite my initial freak outs, I think I've taken it in my stride. On top of that I had a fantastic birthday spent with my family and friends. There has been a little bit too much celebrating going on and its time to reign it in A LOT! Its not over yet, I have a special bank holiday weekend coming up, heading for a romantic night down in The Cliff House in Waterford. This was myself and Conor's birthday present to ourselves, and it will be 2 days of delicious food and I am going to enjoy every mouthful. I have not gotten back on track fully since my birthday and I am up a couple of pounts, so with only 3 days to go before Cliff House what do I do?
And despite the late nights in work I am keeping the running up. Last Thursday when my alarm went off, I rolled over and said too myself 'i'll go after work'. It took less than 30 seconds for me to realise that I was lying to myself and I dragged myself out of bed and hit the road. I am feeling great again about my running, I pushed through my slump and am almost back to where I was pre mini marathon. There is 2 months to go to the Half Marathon and I am feeling good about it. No matter how much I don't want to go running, I always feel great after it.
In other very exciting news, I have been long listed in 3 different categories this year. So a big thank you to everyone who nominated me! Things have been so busy that I have been relying on old favourite recipes to get me through, but I have been missing experimenting in the kitchen so I will be aiming to have a new recipe up here over the next week!
