What a strange week this has been. Freakishly hot weather, plus so much excitement and buzz all over Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games. I feel very lucky to be where I am both in terms of living where I do in Glasgow and working at the BBC. 🙂
On Monday I was in the big tent watching Ken Bruce on Radio 2 – I may have made my step mum jealous 😉 – Simple Minds, Paloma Faith and Rebecca Adlington.
Then on Tuesday we had a team lunch outside in the sun. Nice and relaxing, then up on the Ferris wheel for some fun.
Wednesday, the BBC breakfast team starting going out live from this recently built temporary building / studio. I walk past it every day and every day the path is getting busier and busier.
I had a bit of a sore throat when i woke up on Wednesday. It sometimes happens after I give blood. But it seems to have not got any worse. I was a little sore from strength too but ok.
Thursday was a good day in work, I got plenty done. I passed Ken Bruce, but didn’t have the courage to stop him for a pic and an autograph for my step mum. I will though – maybe Monday when he’s in the tent again (I know some of the production team).
I met one of my coaching clients on Thursday morning. She’s had a refocus on what she’s eating, and lost 5lbs last week, it’s all queuing well. We did a nasty hill session before breakfast. Then I went out at lunchtime and ran to George square to go to the official merchandise shop. Another rather hot 2 miles there and even hotter (it seemed) 2 miles back. Glasgow was buzzing and I counted 67 volunteers!
I got a few goodies and presents from the shop and had another lateish night watching the swimming.
Now it’s the day we travel down to Birmingham for the Thunder Run 24. We’re leaving early to mid afternoon and hopefully I’ll get an early night tonight. I still have some packing to do, but today will be another rest day ahead of tomorrow. 🙂
