I wanted to complete the following speed workout, but my body just wasn’t feeling it. Instead I cut out the mile in the middle and cut my speed a little from normal.
Tom is a member of a lovely gym near to our house, so I decided to use one of his guest passes to go with him to use the pool, steam room and jacuzzi as a post workout treat. My legs are definitely thanking me this morning. Why are gyms so expensive, I wish I could be a member of two!!
Work has been pretty hectic this week, so a casual Friday night dinner and a film date night was the perfect way to finish off the week. I’d been sent some vouchers for a Tortilla by the lovely people that work there after they’d seen me raving about how much I love Mexican food on the blog, so this was the perfect time to redeem them. Post run hunger was insatiable, as always!
They’ve got three options; a burrito, a naked bowl and a taco. Tom opted for a burrito- basically a flour wrap filled with rice, peppers, chicken, sour cream, salsa and lettuce. I chose a naked bowl with coriander rice, peppers, lettuce, salsa, pulled pork and guacamole. I would have quite liked my salad to be tossed together but it was delicious anyway.
By the way, you have to pay extra for guacamole 🙁 .
Tom and I shared a side of tortillas, and more guacamole.
Whilst Tortilla is essentially a fast food chain, the food was really, really good. Plus they serve beers and margheritas- Perfect if you’re in a group who wants food fast, or something that’s reasonably priced. I can definitely see myself coming back here after a workout class or evening run, as the Hammersmith location is on perfectly located on my way home and open until 11pm.
Random fact- did you know there are more Burrito joints in London than there are in Mexico City?
We finished off our night watching The Inbetweeners 2 movie- it is very crude but hilarious. I literally couldn’t laugh loud enough in some places, although Tom assured me that the whole cinema could hear how much I was enjoying myself!
I was given two complementary vouchers for Tortilla, all opinions and photos are my own.
