Tag Teaming the ‘Mill

Tag Teaming the ‘Mill

This morning, @TheWelshWookie and I planned a 9 mile route. So, we had a breakfast smoothie, and got changed to head out for a run. Then, I made the mistake of looking out of the window, and seeing the icy, driving rain outside.

Ooops.

So, I made an alternative suggestion: why not check our running ‘outfits’ for Madrid by running our nine miler on the treadmill?

That’s what we did!

As I mentioned yesterday, @TheWookie has had a dodgy knee, so rather than running nine miles straight, we tag-teamed it by running three miles and swapping over. I’m pleased to say that the running gear performed well, as did @TheWookie’s knee 🙂 We were also able to watch a couple of films as we ran, so we’ve now caught up with the excellent American Hustle and  the not-quite-so-good The Delivery Man. It certainly passed the time!

The plan for this evening is to chill out with a glass of vino and The Voice. What are your plans?

A Weekend in Glasgow

A Weekend in Glasgow

Hi, folks!

Have you had a relaxing weekend, or a busy one?

We’ve has a busy one in Glasgow, though it’s been lots of fun! @TheWelshWookie, my sis Angie and I had a late lunch yesterday at the new Hard Rock Cafe in Glasgow. It opened at the end of November, and this was our first chance to visit.

Wanna see inside?

After some good food, and a few cocktails, we met up with Angie’s bf Ryan, and my mum. We had tickets booked to see The Hobbit in 3D at the IMAX theatre in Glasgow.

Here’s some pics of our walk over the Clyde:

It’s a bit of a family tradition: since Angie was small, we’ve gone together to the showings of the Harry Potter films,  The Lord of the Rings, and now the Hobbit films. We’ll have to find something else next year, after the final instalment of The Hobbit!

No running this weekend: lots of walking, though!
