Ah this week has been busy busy. As it is now April, my MA dissertation is due in in one month. I have booked some time off work next week to crack on with it and spent my day off yesterday in the Uni library. It felt weird, like I was going back to a year ago when I was studying full time. I haven't missed it though! Hopefully by May I will be less stressed & busy.

I have also been running & swimming, 5 weeks to go until my race. I had the most awesome run yesterday. I had blisters on my feet from wearing ballet flats with no socks so was worried it would affect my run. I went out just planning on a short one but the weather was so nice and I felt amazing so I went on my looooong run. My garmin gave out after 1.7k so then I had to start up my nike+, but I think I ran 6k. I remember when running 6k would leave me barely unable to move my legs the day after but now I just felt amazing. I CAN do this 10k run!

  1. Ahh, I love that New Look dress! Last time you posted it, I went to NL to buy it, and had to go back three times before they had it in my size! Finally got it, and the zip broke. Couldn't replace it, so had to get a refund :( But it really look slovely on you, I'm very envious! Well done on the running too, sounds like you're really gettin gon well with it :)

  4. Those outfits look adorable- I especially love your Asos belt :) Well done for running 6k- I'm hopeless at long distance running, so I have a deep admiration for anyone who can manage several km's in one stretch! Good luck with your dissertation ;)

  7. Woo - go you! My 5k is in about 5 weeks too and I'm up to 3.6k on the treadmill, and not finding it too bad - going to try just keeping going tomorrow and see how far I get.

    PS thanks for your sports bra recommendations a week or so back, I now have one that fits and the difference is amazing! Now I need some sort of bum-bra to stop that wobbling and I'll be happy :D x
