Happy birthday















It was son #3's birthday yesterday - the baby of the family has turned 22. I stunned the family by making the birthday cake(s) - something I haven't done for years. After all, that's why we have The Cheesecake Shop, Cake It Away and Michels, isn't it?! Anyway I managed to make Florentine cakes ie double choc mudcake topped with chocolate ganache, chopped ginger, cherries and flaked almonds, then dark chocolate drizzled over (there's a chocolate theme happening...). I won't bore you with the details but let's just say that there was drama aplenty in the making of these! However, the cakes were delicious and that's not just me saying so, so it was all worth it.

On to running things........

Yesterday morning's run
Distance - 10.8km
Time - 60.35min
Av pace - 5.34min/km
AHR - 144; MHR - 193
Started with - Put your money where your mouth is - Jet
Finished with - Here comes another one - SGT

Uneventful run. Felt okay after the Mt Taylor run the day before - just a little bit of DOMS, which was to be expected.

Tomorrow: long run of about 25km
Sunday - rest day - son #3 flying out in the morning, destination Gold Coast, for 3 months IT summer school (Griffith Uni) then friends coming over for afternoon tea. Planning on doing some baking before then.

Pardon my drooling over the yummy looking eats.

It's close to our dinner time, so I'll probably lick the plates clean.

I just don't have anything to say recently. Today was a total loss, but it's not important. Not much on my mind to speak of, but that's how it is. I've just been letting everything happen without me. I can't be bothered with anything recently.
