Ultimate Coffee Date #1

Just the other day I actually had a coffee date (in a local cafe) with a few friends. It was great. It did however turned into lunch which turned into another coffee, and then it was school pick up.

I honestly couldn’t tell you the last time I had a coffee date with friends (family don’t count, even though I love my fam – sorry guys).
So when Jill decided to do a Virtual Coffee Link up I decided I would be in.

Why a coffee date? Well it’s a chance to unwind, and relax with old friends and new.

If you don’t like coffee, go with tea or a hot chocolate, whatever floats your boat. I’m currently loving the Chai latte’s. However today I’m going with Turkish Apple Tea.coffee-runmum

So what would I tell you if we were sitting down for coffee.

I would tell you:

  • That I’m looking forward to my first trail race for the year. It’s a race I have never done before in a place I haven’t been to in over 20 years. Of course I will do a race recap.
  • I’ve just started Asylum Volume 2. I’ve had to watch the trainer dvd a few times, and when it comes to “the audition” i’m un-coordinated it’s laughable (I was laughing at myself), but I’m so loving this workout so far.
  • I’ve also started Nia Shanks Beautiful Badass workout.  It’s 5 foundation moves, and I can tell it’s going to help me intensely.
  • I have been testing out lots of new recipes, and I’m really enjoying cooking up a storm in the kitchen.
  • My order from Wiggle arrived!
    The shoes I had to return (sad face), but just getting them replaced in a different size (there sizing chart was incorrect and thus I got the wrong size).

So that’s what I would tell you.

If we were sitting down for coffee/tea/hot chocolate what would you tell me?

  1. Hmmm, first off let me order a Skinny Latte, no sugar of course.

    What I’d tell you is that I’m in the final throes of training for my first half marathon, a goal I have to run it before I turn 50 later this year, eeeek! Even thinking about 50, I still don’t know how I want to celebrate the milestone. I’d also tell you that I’ve been watching Resurrection on TV and crocheting up a storm. I’m making a baby blanket (hoped to become “blankie” in years to come) for our first grandchild due at the end of June. And I’d also probably tell you that I’d love a couple of bits of biscotti to go with my latte, but I won’t be greedy 😉

    Great post.


  2. Matilda, thanks for having coffee with us. I would love to do/complete a trail run in my life {at least once}. So fun getting in the kitchen and creating, I love it. I would tell you that we live in the Wine Country of Northern California {Napa valley} and have 3 kids. Join us next month for more coffee 🙂

    1. Lynda, you must do a trail run, it’s so much fun.
      I’m still deciding if I want to do a new trail run that has just been advertise. A surf coast one. It’s a half or full marathon distance. I’ll do the half (no desire to do a full).

      I look forward to next month for coffee!

  3. I would definitely want to hear all about Asylum first! I’ve been so tempted to try a Shown T program. Happy we met for coffee and a chat 🙂

    1. I loved Asylum Vol 1. For me however doing it as a hybrid is a lot easier than doing it for 30 days. It’s very intense otherwise, but it is elite training. That being said I know what my body is capable of and doing it as a hybrid and stretching it out further than 30 days works better for me.
      So far I’m enjoying Vol 2, but I have to restart it as I’ve been sick and I’ve missed nearly 2 weeks. Oh well better to recover than get injured.
