Quickie

Just a quickie today because a. I'm exhausted and b. I've exceeded my monthly bandwidth on photobucket so I'm having to upload my pictures via blogger until I can sort it all out!.

This morning I took part in the Clapham Common 5K series and I'm delighted to say that I ran the whole distance without stopping. I'm not sure of my exact time yet but it's under 35minutes which is what I was hoping for (EDIT - 34.35.6mins woo). It was bloody hard work and my legs and feet killed afterwards (blisters too) but I'm so glad I didn't stop! I've only been running for 2 months now and I'm completely thrilled by how much my fitness has improved. My next race will be 10K in July so I've still got a lot of training to do but this was the perfect practice. If you had told me a few months ago that I'd be a long distance runner by the summer I would have died with shock but I'm really enjoying it now so here's to more (longer) races.

After the race I chilled at home for an hour and then went to get my hair done. My roots were in a dire state and my cut was overgrown. I've had a massive dose of ash toner to give the blonde that grey colour which I love. As for the cut, I've had a fair bit chopped off the right side and the bottom so it's really asymetric. I love to have volume at the top and a sweeping side fringe so I'm super happy with it. Frankie always does an amazing job =)


I had my nails painted in an Aztec print on Tursday at the Flash Paradise event (more on that another day) but they are now sadly chipping.

Also, on Friday I had a job interview at Syngenta in Bracknell and before I had even got home they rang me up offering me the job! Of course I took it and as of May 31st I will be working as an eco toxicologist which I'm super excited about. I'm hoping to move to Reading as it's the nearest 'decent' city to work so I'm on the look out for the perfect 1 bedroom flat. I'm really looking forward to moving out and starting my new job but I'm also scared, however I think that's all part of the process so I'm sure I'll be fine.

How was your weekend x

  21. Well done on doing so well with your running! I don't know if I would ever be able to run a 10k, that's incredible. Right now my goal is 7k I think, but after 6.5 I feel like I need to collapse, haha!
