Saturday was an exercise rest day and in the evening we had a fantastic oxtail stew hubby made, takes 4EVAR but sooooo worth the wait. In-between all that my goddaughter & my bestie came round for the weekend and as it was gorgeousness' 3rd birthday I made strawberry muffins and topped some with cream cheese frosting.
I thought they turned out real cute and rather yummy :-)
Sunday was a late start day so a nice lovely lie in and a lazy breakfast with my goddaughter & her mommy & my boys. Then it was time for my run. I dressed and headed out, very soon I was fraught with skirt technical issues .... I had not tied the string tie tight enough and could not get it undone to retie it. I Stopped. I forgot to stop C25K timer. I started again. I stopped. I restarted. I restarted the timer .... or so I thought ... and so it went. Basically I covered somewhere in the region of 4.2kms in approximately 35 minutes. Annoying, yes especially as I had no rhythm so kept stopping too. Glad I got out though :-)
I was most certainly not out for 40 minutes!!!
Had a quick chit-chat with pops-in-law re marathon training programmes and looks like Hal Higdon it is. So I'm all set really, new shoes x 2, new running skirt (issue sorted), training programme all sorted. go, go, GO then really ;-) Oh and socks. I am a Hilly Twin sock chick but did buy a new pair (brand unknown) to try out with my Mizunos and they were really comfortable all-be-it for only such a short distance, I'm loathed to change from my twins though ... they did see me through MoonWalk training and the marathon sans any issues so will stick with them for now.
