My Favourite Cafe

Well, hello there, Monday, you’ve come around too fast!

Today, I received a reality check, after spotting the following goodies in our local Co Op:

Erm, hello, the Hallowe’en goodies haven’t even hit the shelves yet, and you’re selling Christmas goodies?!

Anyhoo, how has your day been?

Tonight, we’ve headed to my favourite cafe for dinner. I’m pretty sure that I’ve mentioned it before. It’s called Cafe Ca’Dora, and it’s in Tarbert, conveniently located easily within walking distance. And we love it!

What is really tempting is that virtually every run goes past it. It’s difficult not to just pop in!

We visit it regularly- too regularly, and every time we have visitors, we’re guaranteed to be in there a few times: for breakfast, or lunch, or coffee, or dinner. Or any combination of those!

@TheWelshWookie loves the burgers.

I love the nachos, wraps, pasta and fajitas.

They also make their own ice cream. It is delicious!

All of this talk of food is making me hungry again! 🙂

And I’m having a rest day; so no running to burn any extra calories off! 😮

So, it’s Saturday, and today @TheWelshWookie is away for a fortnight. We started this morning with a Strawberry and Pineapple protein smoothie, and while he headed out to meet his cadets, I headed out for my run.

Today’s stats:

Run: 9 mile long run: with three weeks until the RnR Dublin half, the taper starts now!

Time: 1:28:39 I’m pretty happy with this 😉

Trainers: LunarRacers

Weather: Warm, but cloudy- the sun burned through the cloud, and broke through just as I finished

First running track of the day: Kanye West – Stronger

The village was quite busy this morning, with lots of visitors around. The harbour itself had loads of boats coming in and heading out:

It’s the Tarbert Raft Race today, and it looks like they’ll have perfect weather for it. There was quite a bit of hustle and bustle, with people preparing for the event:

Is there always something going on in Tarbert I hear you ask? Well, yes- quite often there is! 😀

When I reached the mid-point of my run this morning, a sea plane flew overhead:

It circled right around the village, then headed back out over Loch Fyne. Sorry for the grainy pic, I was trying to run and take a pic at the same time!

Now, I’m going to finish packing, and start the first leg of my journey to London for the Color Run UK tomorrow- squee! I’m so excited!

Today’s life lesson: when you put your lunch in the oven, don’t forget about it. Burnt tortilla pizza is not good.

Has anything surprising stopped you in your tracks during a run before?
