I can't take credit for finding this video - but it's very inspiring. Adam over at The Boring Runner posted it just before the 5k...
I am also on a high today because my favourite tennis player, Andy Murray, has just won the gold medal in the men's singles final! I actually stood up and screamed when he won! He is now playing for the mixed doubles gold medal - so hopefully today will be double gold!
This morning, I made cupcakes. I haven't made cupcakes in a while - and actually today was the first Sunday when we've had a proper English roast dinner in weeks. Today it was roast lamb and the cupcakes for dessert. They were glorious, as expected - but it's amazing to think that in one little cake there is lurking over 500 calories! Yikes! Nice for an occasional treat, but definitely not an every day dessert!

Today's run was short - 5 minute warm up walk, 20 minutes running, 5 minutes cool down walk. I was pleased that my pace has actually picked up too! Seeing all the 5k race times yesterday had me in awe and wonder - some people ran 5k in 20 minutes - that's less than half my time! So today I really made an effort to increase my pace but without wearing myself out. This is definitely what I need to concentrate on going forward.
The weekend is nearly over, but I can honestly say it's been a blast! I hope you've all had a fabulous weekend too!
