Happy Sunday all
So time for the weekly recap. This week I did 4 miles on monday, aerobics Tuesday (and got stiff calves during this for some reason), a 6 mile run wednesday (still with stiff calves), body pump on thursday (which helped with the stiff calves a lot), a long run of 11.4 miles on saturday, and had a nice walk today. Total miles this week= 21.4 miles. I tried those clif bloks for the first time and they did not have any side effects. I have been foam rolling most evenings which does seem to help, although it still hurts a lot! I have also been trying to drink more water again today.
Today began with porridge in a jar- the most exciting thing about making pumpkin pasta was having some left over pumpkin that I could add to my porridge. This one had a blob of pumpkin puree, some allspice and a few dried cherries.
The addition of all the scrapings of peanut butter from the jar made it even tastier 🙂 I do sometimes (especially on saturdays) add a blob of pb to my porridge, but when it is from a jar you get peanut flavour in every spoonfull. Plus the dried cherries were amazing- they had plumped up overnight and added bursts of sweetness- yum.
I had a walk this afternoon to stretch the legs, and then for lunch I tried the PB2 (powdered peanut butter) from the lovely Jess.
I was so impressed- once you added water and mixed it was just like peanut butter-(hold on, peanut butter tastes like peanut butter? really?)- really tasty pb too 🙂
We are off to see Andy’s parents in a bit so fingers crossed they like the cake. (And also that the icing does not fall off on the way round!)
Also we signed up for the Great South Run yesterday- I love watching stuff like that on TV but the last few years the Herts 10K has been on at the same time so we have always done that instead, but this year we decided to go for that race. I have never done a 10 miler so am looking forward to that, and I think the crowd support etc will be nothing like I have ever done before either, as the races I have done tend to me smaller local ones. It’s not every day you get a chance to run a race alongside Blue Peter presenters now is it ?
Enjoy the rest of the weekend folks 🙂
