Welcome to the first day of Spring my friends. I hope you all had the same wonderful Spring day we had today, nothing but sunshine and clear blue sky.
Yesterday R. and I went out for dinner. It was National Dining Week and we made reservations in our favourite restaurant. We had a 4 course dinner for only € 27,50 (39 USD), normally we pay double for that. Here’s what we had:
We got a glass of Prosecco with some bread to start with.
First course was rocket salad with feta cheese, green peppers and sundried tomatoes.
After that I had a bouillon soup (R. had onion soup).
Main course was 3 little pieces of duck, kangaroo and ostrich meat.
Dessert was a grand dessert
My legs weren’t half as sore after the 16K on Saturday than the week before and I decided to do my temporun this morning. It went great, I ran nonstop without walking. I left in the dark and halfway during my run I saw a beautiful sunrise and came home when it was light. Sunrises are amazing and I enjoyed this run very much. I miscalculated that it was freezing and had no gloves on but my hands were warm after about 1 mile in the run.
Weather: dry, not much wind, -1C (30 degrees)
Distance: 8 K / 5 miles
Average time: 6:56 /km
Average speed: 8.7 km/hour
Last song on Ipod before finish: REM – Losing my religion
Monday March 21
Chipolata sausages (that’s what they’re called here), baked potatoes and a delicious salad of tomato, mango, corn and red onion.
