Happy Sunday! I hope you have managed to enjoy the sunshine, like my pug friend who I fell in love with at the beach today.
Last night we tried out an African inspired restaurant we had never been to in Manly
We started with the ‘mazza platter’ of mixed marinated and gourmet vegetables, which came with delicious toasted bread on the side (didn’t photograph very well).
My plate of beetroot, capsicum, artichoke, eggplant (my favourite) and toast.
For mains, I got the ‘Fish Turbine Tajine’ which was blue eyed cod adorned in their famous spicy tomato charmoula and Maroccan spices. It was so good! Tajine, we found out is the name of the Moroccan pot the dish is cooked and served in.
Josh had the ‘Couscous Lamb Bidaobi’ – marinated lamb served on couscous with a combo of sweet chickpeas and vegetable broth. He very much enjoyed it. Both dishes were enjoyed with a glass of wine and a side of ‘Harissa’ – hot chilli. Mmm
This morning we headed out for a beautiful 11.75 km run from Bondi Beach to Coogee.
We ran at a steady 6.25 pace. There were heaps of runners, walkers and joggers out and about and LOTS of very challenging hills and stairs. Perfect training run for City2Surf which is in 5 weeks.
I also tried out my heart rate monitor for the first time. My average heart rate was 172 bpm and my max was 229 bpm. I have been doing alot of reading about heart rate stats and I am slowly getting my head around what it all means. I plan to do a post on HR this week, so stay posted.
After our run headed out for a bite to eat and did some Spanish practice in preparation for our South America trip which is 3 months away. It makes it all the more real when learning a new language is involved 😛 But more on that later..
Sydney siders… this week I will be doing some last minute organising for my girls run one Sunday this month. I am still in the process of organising a few different things so I shall fill you in soon!
For now, fill me in on your Sunday.
Have you managed to enjoy a Sunday workout or an enjoyable Sunday meal? xx
