So it is now 6 months until the Miami marathon. I’ve spent a few hours this week figuring out a training plan – mainly following Hal Higdon’s Novice 2 plan. I also plan to do a couple of halves between now and then – I just wish it wasn’t so damn hot right now. I dropped my car off for a service yesterday and took advantage of the 6mile journey to run home – blimey it must have been 90degrees at 8.30am – I needed that coconut water afterwards! I’m also trying to adapt my diet without being overly obsessive or restrictive – cutting out alcohol (well at least between Sundays and Thursdays!), more fruit, more juices (beetroot, celery and ginger is a favorite), zero fast food and more protein. Now just need to incorporate some yoga into my schedule every week for a good stretch.
I have an update on the Express jeans I was lusting after the other day – with the magic of CRM and shopping cart technology Express must have seen I kept loading my cart with the light pink jeans but not actually hitting ‘order’! Low and behold yesterday I got an email offer from the for jeans at $29.99! Jobs a good ‘un – pink jeans now on their way to me:) Promo code was 1626 if you’re interested in them too – it seems to apply to all their jeans right now – not sure how I managed to restrain myself and only order the pink pair!
I’m now officially over living in the basement – clutter is everywhere and I’m finding it impossible to keep tidy…but there is light at the end of the tunnel – the tiling is almost done, the painters are in the the hardwoods get finished next week – so with any luck we’ll be done at the end of next week! Of course the painting and work that has been done is so sparkly and fantastic that it makes the other areas of the house look a little tired…we’ll get to them eventually once my son has stopped slamming his Tonka truck into every wall and baseboard!
Thankfully my fabulous Husband was around this morning to take on the duty of photographing me. After a couple of days in tunics – sorry no photos – I opted for my fab J.Crew green chino shorts – these are 4″ but I noticed they had some 3″ and 5″ lengths in the sale online in other colors. I’m wearing them with my AllSaints vest, H&M linen jumper and fabulous Sam Edelman Louie tan suede boots. Ankle boots with shorts has to be one of my favorite looks from this summer.
We’re in full preparation for the return to school in a week hence the folder of sight words and reading on the table!
