Running inbetween waffles

Running inbetween waffles

Had a gorgeous run in the sunshine through the Belgian countryside today. Here for a week's celebration of my big 4-0. After a few days of Belgian beer, chocs, frites, waffles, etc I really felt the need for a run!

What a treat to enjoy some different scenery, & it wasn't dogs I had to look out for here but cyclists & motorcycles (the latter come out of nowhere & are allowed to use the cycle path so catch one very unawares!). Got very hot as there was no shade but my new watch (R2D2) helped me along to that little bit further again within 30 mins. Feel very virtuous having exercised on hols, now off to cram more yummy food & drink in, hurrah!

  • Oooh lucky you. Frites and spit roast chicken with mayo is yummy over there. Waffles too. Oh and the mussels. You'll need to get some runs in to shift any extra calories consumed, natch!

    Have a lovely time

  • Oh it's all so yummy isn't it miss wobble, at least the mussels are fairly pure protein;) hope to get at least one more run in, we're off walking en famille today so that should help a bit too x

  • What a lovely way to celebrate your birthday. All those treats sound so yummy and just the thing for pre and post run! x :-)

  • It is all rather perfect I have to say, has rather taken the emphasis away from worrying about getting old & reflecting too much on where I am in life, which was kind of the idea xxx

  • I thought you were in Australia for a minute there Marly ha ha :-)

    Sounds absolutely lovely and I hope you have a fab Birthday :-) xxx

  • Ooh I know, I don't know why that posted upside down & can't change it from my phone, never mind! And thank you x

  • Beer chocolate waffles! Mmm.......

    that looks lovely, well done and happy belated birthday 😊

  • Thank you, I am enjoying it to the max :):):) xxx

  • Happy Birthday!!!! That horse is gripping on by his hooves pretty well!

  • LOL!!!

  • Thanks, ha ha ha, maybe he had too many waffles too xxx

  • Sounds like you've designed the perfect Birthday Break! Felicitations and jubilations for your coming of age :-)

  • Many thanks, yes all carefully designed to divert me from the coming of age itself, has worked a treat I must say:) x

  • Joyeuse Anniversaire from me too!

    It does sound like THE perfect trip and well done for not only taking your running kit on holiday, but for using it too!

    How all our lives have changed. The size of my holiday bag used to be dominated by how many pairs of stilettos I could fit in there, now its dictated by ability to hold trainers.

    Enjoy the rest of your week. 😊

  • Do remember only to eat mussels in months that have the letter 'r' in them. As in January, February, March, April, Ray, Rune, Ruly.... ;)

    Sounds absolutely lovely. I envy you the great food, and the run seems to be out of this world as well. Do you find it easier or harder to run upside down? I must try it one of these days...

  • Sounds fabulous :-D

    Very many birthday πŸŽ‚ wishes.

    xx
