Last Friday was Valentine's Day, as I'm sure you noticed. You probably noticed even if you were trying very hard not to.
I took it as an excuse to get my quilling paper out and see if I could have a bit more success than my rubbish attempts at snowflakes over christmas. Turns out hearts are really easy to do!
(And yes, I've discovered the photo editing tools on my phone...)
On to the tourism part; we went to Edinburgh. We'd booked this 3-day trip before realising it coincided with Valentine's day, so it was a happy discovery to know that we'd be in my all-time favourite city together on a romantic weekend. Apart from some driving sleet on the Friday night (we retreated pretty quickly to the hotel and ordered room service!) the weather was good. See;
Obviously, we did a Parkrun. The Scottish side of my family (my Dad's brother) live in Edinburgh and are experienced runners, so we met them on the promenade in Crammond along with over 400 other parkrunners on the chilly drizzly Saturday morning. It was a stunning place to run, the view was a bit distracting;
This is me and my uncle running a bit past half way. I really love this photo! Perfectly synchronised!
So that's what I did last weekend. This week the training has taken the running up a notch, stand by for a post on progress imminently...
