My Brownie Recipe!

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Being injured gives you some free time! I like to cook and made some brownies the other day. Thought I would share the recipe so that if you find you have some free time and want to get fat. Here it is….

350g Plain Chololate

225g Butter

2 tbsp strong coffee

225g caster sugar

75g self raising flour

Touch of salt

175g chopped walnuts

1tsp vanilla essence

Chop the 225g of chocolate and keep to one side. Melt the rest of the chocolate with the butter in a bowl over a pan and leave to cool slightly. Mix the eggs, coffee and sugar together in a bowl until smooth. Gradually beat in the melted chocolate. Fold in the flour, salt, walnuts and vanilla essence. Pour the mixture in to a baking tin and put in to the oven pre heated at 180c for 40-45 minutes.

Sit back and get fat!!


Triathlon Malarky

Saturday, July 16th, 2011

Hey so its been a while since my last blog!

Its a rollercoaster ride triathlon, you have good days and bad days. After Challenge Aarhus I came down with a nice bout of gastro-enteritis. 5 days of not doing much except visiting the toilet. Seriously was not a happy chappy!!

I am happy to say I am over that now and it has nearly been a week since I was ill. This week started off tough as I had little energy in my body but we have put in some solid riding and a good track session for me so things are looking up. These next few weeks Brett has promised to be tough so in a way I am glad I have got my sickness out of the way so I can concentrate on the hard work coming up. Fingers cross with the weather as it has been awesome here the last few weeks.

Next weekend I will be racing Geneva European cup then Alpe D’huez 3 days later and to finish off my own little Iron Tour I will be visiting my motherland to race in the London Triathlon. Looking forward to that tough week.

Speak to you all soon!
