Festival Food....

I used to really like food that comes on a stick. Ice cream, candy apples, skewered meat, cotton candy, corn dogs... I think you get the picture. My DH and I recently when to the annual festival in our home town. This year I was not really tempted by the 'food on a stick booths', but the salmon bbq is a tradition that I could not pass up. They catch salmon in the morning and then grill it over a wood fired with the most delicious herb marinade. It has been the same since I was a little girl and it is the best meal I have all year. A few small changes to the meal and I enjoyed it as much as ever. I had the whole wheat roll (no butter), the baked potato with a tsp of butter (no sour cream) and I skipped the salad (very creamy mystery dressing all over it). The salmon was the highlight and although high in points it is one of the healthiest foods you can eat - and I enjoyed every bite (as you can see by the picture).

On to other news. I completed Week3 Day1 of the C25K on Friday with flying colours. I actually found it quite easy. The format is

5 min warmup

90 sec run

90sec walk

3 min run

3min walk

(repeat )

5 min cool down

I will do week3 day2 tomorrow after work.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Thanks for the compliments (I'm blushing!)

Janet - the C25K program is great, I used to run a lot many many years ago and this program gently eases you back in - I can go at my own pace, moving on when I feel ready.
