In addition to running and working on my splits this week, I have also been in London for work (and for fun). For some reason yesterday I thought I was Sarah Jessica Parker, and ran around London all day in my heels. Now my feet sport the kind of ugly red blisters typically achieved by a half marathon – which are much easier to tolerate! So Runday turned into splits day for me. I also did splits on Friday, and 5 miles with my running group on Wednesday.
London is magical at Christmas. And given that I donâ€™t have much of a running tale for you this week, here is my weekend in 14 pictures. It started well when we left the tube and immediately spotted Benâ€™s Cookies, and only got better from there:
Coffee @ Work Shop. Good coffee, busy staff…
You can buy both a new jacket and a Jetson car in this store
Love London Alleys
Where the rich buy their swag
Winter Wonderland, Hyde Park
Best dinner everrrrrrrr.
Park Lane Hotel for a civilised drink
My staples for the weekend. And probably the rest of the year
Even Santa has to have lunch.
This week will have more running-related activity. It’s just hard toÂ not to write about the wonderful-ness which is Christmas in the UK.
