Good Food and Training week one complete

It was the long weekend here in NZ this past weekend so the family and I embarked on a good food weekend and ate extremely well for all three days of the gloriously sunny start to summer.

Couscous with feta and roast pumpkin, filo parcels with feta and fresh spinach, broadbill steaks with lemon and pepper youghurt on wilted greens, Fresh papaya with coconut milk etc etc etc

It was just really nice to get back in the kitchen. I love cooking but very rarely get time to cook with work and training so it was nice to have the time to play.

Also got back into the rhythm of training again as I head into week 2 of the preparatioin for my first full marathon on 05/03/11. Managed 3 x 10km runs over the weekend and I had forgotten how awesome it is to run under blue skies with the sun beaming down and a slight head wind to cool one down as you run. One of life's true pleasures.

While the runs weren't perfect they certainly weren't horrible either and got through with only a little bit of soreness so am happy to be underway.

Yesterday we went out to visit the light house on the Awhitu peninsula at Manukau heads and the pics below show the kind of weather i now get to run in...yay for summer.
