So I thought I would treat you to a photo of the bike back on two wheels!! I know that just made your day soo much better. 
Now I'm just wondering have any of your starting decorating for christmas, well we all know Skinny Runner has!! Since I live in a rented house while I'm at uni we only get 2 weeks of December together but that doesn't seem quite like long enough for me, maybe I'm addicted to Christmas?  I think decorating will start next weekend, but in the mean time I've started to make the paper chains out of old magazines. A little bit of recycling right there as well
(Here's last years paper chain effort in the kitchen)

Finally I went on an amazing run last night, it was my second one in as many days and on both runs I managed to get negative splits.

Run 1 - 2.87 km
first half - 10.04 mins
second half - 9.21 mins
pace - 6.45 min/km

Run 2 - 2.98 km
first half - 10.08 mins
second half - 9.05 mins
pace - 6.26  min/km 

After logging it on MapMyRun I calculated my pace. Does anyone else use MapMyRun?

What would you rate your last workout on a scale of 1-10? I would rate mine both as 8's, they felt pretty awesome to me.

When do you start decorating for Christmas, how about when you were at University? Did you start decorating earlier then? 
 
 
Jack is my bike, and he is fixed :) It is standing on two wheels again for the first time in a few days! 

Yesterday was my first class in a new module and I was really nervous. I only knew about 6 people out of about 80 but everyone was really welcoming. 
We have started learning about the National Curriculum in PE and then went on to have a practical session in Gymnastics. I'm not sure about you but the last time I did any sort of gymnastics was when I was bout 11. Turns out I have lost all flexibility and today my muscles are SORE!! Not very good for getting a workout done :( 

Today was a relaxing day, just one class. But I'm headed off the library now to get some work done, so I'll leave you with this to think about. 
It's pretty, cool the first four words you see describe you mine were


outgoing, outspoken, peaceful and thoughtful

What words describe you?

I think it is official. I am probably the worst blogger ever. I mean, I always forget my camera, I never manage to take good photos when I have it and always forget to actually write down what I've been up to. So here is a whirl wind tour of my weekend just gone!! I hope you had an exciting weekend as well. 


It started with a bike puncture which was a bit annoying but made me a little excited as I had never had one before. However I soon realised that I am really bad at fixing them. Using a biro, a couple of pencil and a knife later I managed to prise the tyre off!
We then patched it up, with some much needed help from a couple of awesome guys on my uni course. 
After letting that dry I realised that I had no idea of how to get the tyre back on so decided to give up and wait for them to come help me again.
In the evening I made this lasange which was delicious. It was really simple as well
- chop up the veg and cook gently in a pan with a tin of chopped tomatoes
- make a cheese sauce in a seperate pan
- once the veg is ready layer veg, lasagne sheets and cheese sauce in an oven proof dish
- finish cooking in the oven for another 20 or so minutes 
Sunday was a little more successful. I went into town with the same two guys who fixed the puncture to see the Remembrance Parade. There were a couple of hundred people out in the centre of Liverpool paying their respects which was touching to see. 
They might not be the best pictures but I think you can see how many people were out on a cold Sunday morning. 
While we were in town I picked up my new waterproof jacket. I have been saving up for this for a couple of months and am really excited to finally have it!! It's the Mountain Equipment Women's Diamir Jacket in True Red. It is honestly the best jacket of this type I have ever had.
i spent Sunday afternoon in the library doing some work for an assignment due in a couple of weeks but ended up loosing about 3 hours worth of work. as you can imagine I was pretty annoyed and this photo best sums up how I was feeling at the time. 
I hope you all had good weekends, any one get up to anything fun?
