Saturdays are supposed to be quite indulgent, aren’t they? Mine are usually filled with the things I love. Here’s my Maroubra Saturday.
6:30am – 16km city run with a couple of my running group gals
8:30am – recovery brekkie… flavoured milk with pancakes (of course) or smashed avocado on sour dough bread with a little lemon or balsamic vinegar, and if all else fails peanut butter on toast with a Powerade Zero (in any case protein and carbs are always high on the list)
10:00am – stroll along the beach (camera in hand), taking in the smell of the ocean and the ‘cruisey-ness’ of the surfers and the coffee sippers. And if the temperature is obliging a dip in the ocean
12:30pm – a cheeky Vietnamese chicken roll from the bakery around the corner (hold the chilli and extra coriander please)
2:00pm – the catchup: papers, magazines and blogs and all while the Happy Runner plays ‘Stavros’ in his growing garden
4:00pm – Skype to Coffs Harbour – Hello ‘Miss Bean’ and ‘Ryles’
5:00pm – maybe another trip to the beach (the rock pools at South Maroubra come alive at this time), the cinema if I can convince the Happy Runner (it’s hard to get him to sit still for that long), or maybe a sneaky epi of ‘Breaking Bad’.
6:30pm – to be honest I love a Saturday night in… a Nanna at heart!
