When we got home we played with the animals for a while.
Last night the lovely Em came for dinner. I haven't cooked anything new for ages and have been hanging to try something new. I searched online and found some great recipes. We started with Lemon & Broccoli Risotto.
Followed by a delicious Caramel muffin served with Chocolate Risotto.
They were so yummy and everyone seemed to enjoy them.
This morning I went for a run with Ross.
Previous PB - 8 + 9 = 19
New PB - 12 + 15 = 27
Yep - you read that right - 27 minutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We did 4.5kms in 48 minutes, and in total I ran approx 2.7 kms. I am still really slow, but I am really enjoying it. Once I get started I get into a rythym (albeit a slow one) and then I really have fun.
One thing I have noticed though, is that I run better if I only run twice a week. Three times a week and I seem to get a bit niggly with my feet and knees, but twice a week and I improve every time I run. So from now on I'll aim for Wednesdays and once on the weekends.
This afternoon I made cupcakes. I have always loved those fancy decorated cupcakes. There are heaps of books and kits on them these days, but I didn't go out and buy any. I just decided to get a recipe, some decorations, and have a bash at them. Some turned out pretty crappy, but a few looked okay. No matter what they looked like, they taste devine!
Tonight we are having leftover risotto, then I'm going to kick back and watch the Biggest Loser finale. Like I said - a great weekend.
