/ weekly wind-down 12

What a week. I hate complaining and it's been one of the things I'm struggling to accept that comes hand in hand with training. Normally I have no issues with being upbeat and bubbly, but it has had to become a very conscious effort to stop frowning. 

Friday was probably one of my lowest days this year. I felt ill, my joints were very painful and to top it off I was an emotional wreck following an unsuccessful gym trip...  it took a while for reality to sink in - my happiness shouldn't be governed by something so trivial. However from a training perspective my weekly mileage was at an all time low of just 10 and my diet had gone to pieces.

In an attempt to drag me out of my duvet, a friend suggested visiting the local park, which comes along with goats and ducks (I mistook those for rabbits - I didn't have glasses on).


Saturday I smashed my 5km time. We ran it at the local Park run, the atmosphere is awesome!!

28.04 - nothing special but it was the first time I felt like I was in control of my pace. 

This week I am thankful for:
teapig peppermint and liquorice tea. If you are like me and struggle with sugar cravings this is the solution. I promise. 
patient friends.
some of the most inspiring lecturers ever - they seriously love their jobs

i'm going to employ a photographer so they aren't always awkward angle selfies. 

The lust list:
I would be most grateful for a family easter. When I was younger we used to have everyone round and would spend all day eating and catching up.
pudding please.

love sophie
