It is Sunday again and time to see what we did at the weekend. Both me and Jason really like writing these posts, and we like that we will be able to remember how we spent our weekends in the future 🙂
I have been feeling tired all week, it seems that the cold I have had has not quite left my body yet. At the same time I know that I feel much more tired when I have weeks with little or no training. So, on Friday I decided after work that I needed a little turbo training session. An hour of climbing proved to be the best way to start my weekend 🙂
You should always listen to your body and if you are not feeling well you should rest. However, sometimes you need to give yourself some love in the form of training and that might be what you need to get more energized.
I have not been able to run for weeks because of my leg and it has been a bit sad for me since I love it. Next week in Spain I will try to go for a slow and gentle run and see if it feels better, I really hope so.
Me before the session!
After training we made a delicious Vietnamese dish that came from Jamie Oliver’s magazine. It was a Vietnamese Bun Cha with sticky tofu and it was so good. It was also vegan and gluten free. We both loved it! And drinking a mojito with dinner only made it better 😉
On Saturday Jason did a very early, but short session on the turbo trainer. After breakfast we then drove down to Helsingborg (south of Sweden). We were visiting my sister (Lisa) and Tommy. After arriving in Helsingborg we went straight to the ferry and took a tour across the sound to Helsingör, which is in Denmark. The crossing only takes 25 minutes and you can have some fika on the boat or go in the border (duty-free) shop.
In Helsingör we went to Madame Sprunck and had brunch. A lot of food and all very good. Then we had a stroll around town before going back to Helsingborg.
We then had some fika 🙂
In the evening we made homemade gnocchi (with a sauce similar to this one but pine nuts instead of walnuts). My sister and Tommy are now making an effort to eat more vegetarian food which is really nice, After dinner we played Risk and I won!
Me with the yellow, world domination!
Today we had a nice long breakfast before driving to my parents’ for a short visit and lunch.
Now we are back home and Jason is doing another turbo session 🙂 I will go and make dinner and tonight it will be re-fried beans, homemade flatbread and a nice salad. The perfect way to end the week.
We hope you all had a nice weekend!
