I'm STILL a self confessing, self professing know-it-all, or so I think!

25 days – 200 kilometers!!

… consecutive days I should add, 8K everyday! Not to mention the occasional nightly 3-4K walks with Tiffany K … not even counting those. That was gonna be my blog entry, the days and distance … but something remarkable happened on the 25th day, I recorded my best time ever. And not by a bit, by a lot, I obliterated my previous best (39 minutes) by a whopping 1 minute and 18 seconds! Gonna email my personal trainer and tell him that’s all I’ve got to give and not to expect anymore (private joke, lol)! To put it in perspective, my single best 1K split was 4:42 … today I ran the whole 8K AVERAGING 4:42 … I know, insane, eh? Friday Morning Run June 7, 2013  RunKeeper stats y’all!!

Duck Pancakes!!

Finally getting around to blogging about Tiffany K‘s Duck Pancakes – pulled BBQ duck, a heaping helping of blueberry compote, and a huge scoop of creamy chèvre piled high on fresh flapjacks (I know, sounds SO decadently good!) from our initial brunch outing in November 2011 at Barque Smokehouse on Roncesvalles. Hey, better late than never, ‘sides, ain’t as if yer payin’ a pretty penny for the quality of my work … so no complainin’, lol. Found this pic, actually two pics – two perspectives … take a look! Neat!

Organic Roasted Dandelion Root

One of the many healthy herbal tea products from Traditional Medicinals … it caught my eye while tea shopping for Tiff as I was familiar with it having previously bought dandelion root tablets. Its health benefits are incredible, and I’m happy having incorporated it into my nightly routine. It has a pleasant taste … you can actually taste the roasted flavour.

… and it’s ORGANIC to boot …

… steeped, ready to enjoy in my fave Denby mug …
