Yay!πŸ‘The autumn sun is out,β˜€οΈπŸbut not running today. I've been to the gym instead! Body Pump might leave a few aches and pains tomorrow! πŸ™ŠAh well, 🀷 it goes with territory! Right? Now, I'm going to enjoy my Nespresso and catch up on the latest 'Women's Health's magazine, that arrived in the post today! 😊

Well, we woke up to a wet and overcast day!⛱️ It was very tempting to stay tucked up in bedπŸ’€ But, when you're a runner you remind yourself 'whatever the weather' right?πŸ™Œ Mostly!πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
Contrary to the photo, I am not trying to sneak away, by the way. It was a wet, muddy and slippery, run. But it was fun! Why? Because you're not the only crazy one out there doing it! πŸ™ƒ

Fully into Autumn now. Such a beautiful run, in all kinds of colours. The leaves have gone but it's still stunning! Such a healthy space - mind and body. A runners luxury!

Homemade mini granola cups. I used 100% Canadian Maple Syrup and Jordanian dates to sweeten and bind them. A simple and healthy treat for everyone!
#homemade #treats #cleaneating #vegan
#fruit #almonds #oats #nutritious #yummy
Recipe:- In a bowl, combine
1.50 c Oats
0.50 c pumpkins seeds
0.50 c chopped almonds
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp coconut flakes (optional)
.25 c dried apricots
.25 c cranberries
In a processor, blend into a smooth, creamy paste
1 c pitted dates

(Pinch of salt optional)
Combine the above ingredients and press into whatever shape you choose!
I dry roasted the oats, pumpkin seeds, almonds chia seeds for aporox 10 minutes for that slightly roasted flavour but that is also optional.

'Skinos' is the only spirit in the world, distilled from the tears of the Mastiha tree on the island of Chios.
A beautiful gift from our wonderful Greek friends. Looking forward to seeing you in December! πŸ™Œ

Some people look too good after a half marathon @joelahdanae Ah well. I can't take back the years but I can make the most of them.😊
13.1 miles - we did it again. πŸ™Œ Aside from Storm Brian pushing us around a bit, it was the most beautiful run πŸ€—

When you dress up nicely to go to town and daughter announces we're power walking the three miles there. Trainers; not on trend today I guess!

I've just returned from a couple of days in London. 😊I love, that there are so many green spaces and parks in such a vibrant city. Can't say I warmed to this Spriggan though, mischievously hanging from the bridge in Parkland Walk near Finsbury Park. But I was fascinated.

Beyond Bread, Islington London. Another great Gluten Free Cafe in London. Never thought to put pomegranate with egg before? Will now! 😊

Today while out walking, I found this gorgeous vegetarian cafe tucked away in Finsbury Park. I enjoyed a much needed coffee and just couldn't resist this lemon tart.
The quaint setting and great food of this French Patisserie has me thinking, I might just have to come back tomorrow, for breakfast. Why not!

A beautiful spot along the River Kennett in Reading, Berkshire. I really wanted to share his seat after my long walk into town, but opted not to invade his space. Such a picture of serenity.
