Photo Friday

 

 

Today I am flying back to the UK after a week in Oslo. And for fun, because it’s Friday, I thought I ‘d show you how my week looked in photos. Soooo.. Enjoy!

 

It started on Saturday with the Night We Took All The Selfies. My camera is full. of. them. It’s like a time lapse video.

And the next day, I got the best present. It came in a huge purple box and contained two very important items:

On the same day, I saw this on Twitter and thought it’d be fun to do:

Then in Oslo, the day after birthday Tiramisu, I went for a run:

It was a slow run because I kept stopping to take photos. Oslo is great for running  – it’s pretty flat, and has wonderful waterside views. It was cold though!

 

And today I saw the best taxi in the whole wide world:

I would literally pay someone to drive me around in this all day long, and all my money would vanish.

 

And finally – in our Oslo office, I saw these words of wisdom on the wall:

Have a fabulous weekend everyone – go out there thinking that you CAN!!!!! (Whatever it is you want to do)

Finally Friday!

So another Friday is upon us :) I love the 6pm feeling!

This week, instead of “What I’m Loving Friday”, I just have one word for you: chocolate. This week has been all about the chocolate. It started with the chocolate pav I made for the BBQ, followed by chocolate milk on Monday, lots of Dairy Milk leftover from a Dairy Milk-Banana-BBQ experiment gone wrong, and all topped off with some birthday cake. It was SB’s birthday yesterday – and I celebrated with muchos birthday cake 😀

Here’s a run down on my training this week:

  • Monday: 11.5 mile run at just over 8 mins a mile. I didn’t feel any pain on the run, but the next few days, my adductor and my IT band were really tender. So I eased off the serious training for a few days.
  • Tuesday: 6 mile cycle, and a dance class. But I was teaching the class, so it’s kind of cheating to include it in a training wrap up.
  • Wednesday: Really gentle 6.8 mile run with my running club, in 1hr 5 mins. I had been foam roller-ing like a bad ass since Monday, so wanted to take it nice and easy.
  • Thursday: Gentle jog for 2 miles with my friend in the countryside. The scenery was gorgeous. Generally we chatted and solved all the world’s problems.
  • Friday: Hill reps for 8 miles. 2.5k warm up, and then 6 reps of hills, and a 2k cool down.

I’ll leave you all to your Friday nights now. I’m eating cake, drinking Baileys, watching Breaking Bad and foam roller-ing.

Good times.
