A weekend of wedding catchup

This post will be short.  I’ve stolen Dan’s laptop whilst he is watching the football transfers on the TV.  My laptop charger broke last Thursday and I haven’t been able to use it since; hence the lack of posts, comments and reading of blogs over the weekend!  A new one has been ordered, so expect me back full time in 3-5 working days!

Thursday: Geocaching with my friend Vick, her boyfriend Alex and her friend Hadeel, followed by lunch, a catchup and then golf!  (I was RUBBISH!)

Friday and I was headed to Nadine’s Bridal Boutique with my Mum for a wedding dress hunt, which after two and a half hours of playing dress-up I FOUND!  (It was actually the very first dress I tried on!)

Saturday brought more wedding fun as I met up with two of my bridesmaids, Hollie and Amanda to check out a new wedding shop in town, which we followed up with hot chocolates, lunch and lots more gossiping and plenty of laughs!

The wedding madness wasn’t over, as on Sunday I headed to The Haycock Hotel with Vicki, who’s having her wedding there in 2015 and they were holding a big wedding fayre there this weekend.  This is the first wedding fayre that I’ve had to pay to enter (only £1.50) but it was honestly the best wedding fayre I’ve been to as well.  There was loads to see, and we even got to sneak into the bridal suite as the cleaners were in whilst we were walking past!  I got plenty of ideas from the rooms that were set up…

…and I even blagged us all a ride in the horse and carriage! Can’t wait to arrive by horse and carriage at our wedding next year! :)

In running news I have been declared fit to run with a diagnosis of tendinitis and my running plan for the first half of the week looks like this…
MONDAY: 30min easy
TUESDAY: 45min easy
WEDNESDAY: 45min easy
THURSDAY: 90min easy with last 30mins including 4x6min at threshold pace with 90sec jog recoveries.

Phoebe’s going to see how I get on with training the first half of the week before working out a plan for the rest of my runs but (touch wood) I SHOULD be racing at Bristol half next Sunday!  :)

Now I best return Dan’s laptop and head to bed as I start at my new school tomorrow and know it will be a super busy day with lots to take in!
Night all!  :)

  1. Are you still coming up to do the Great North Run? Or am I being characteristically scatterbrained and imagining that you were doing it? Apologies if I’m barking up the wrong tree as per usual!

    Tendinitis can be annoying to deal with, but at least it’s nothing bone-related and hopefully the time off will have eased the pain quite considerably. I’m so happy that you’re back on track and things are looking up :)

    1. Nope, not you being scatterbrained, me being indecisive! I shall now be at Bristol instead, with a guaranteed GNR place next year to look forward to!

  2. Woohoo that you can run again! :) Good news!
    And yay for finding your dress – so exciting! I remember this time last year I was heavily involved in all the wedding preparation stuff – with only like 2-3 weeks until the big day. Love that you’re getting dropped off my horse and carriage. So vintage! We had an old-style car to take me to the church and then Ben and me to the reception.
    How cool you’re running the Bristol half marathon – I am too! Maybe I’ll see you there :)

    1. At my new post-injury speed your post-race meal will be finished by the time I cross the line! But if you do see me, say hi! :)
      The one think I have always dreamed of whenever weddings were mentioned was that I would arrive in a horse and carriage. Can’t believe I’m finally getting the chance to do it now! I didn’t realise you just got married last year…I’m going to have to read back in the archives of your blog to find out more with how you coped with it all now…! :)
