That was the plan today.
I got up, had breakfast (lots of water, and porridge with pumpkin and peanut butter), then I cleaned the bathrooms. How efficient. When Andy got back from his run, I headed out. It was super windy out there, and in some places I felt like I was at walking speed. It drizzled on and off for a bit, but nothing heavy, and as it was mild it was quite refreshing.
I took some more of those clif shots with me, and had a couple after 7 miles (and water). In the end 12 miles took me 2 hours and 7 mins, which is consistent with my half marathon time of 2.19 I suppose. I was pretty pleased with how the run went- my pace was up and down but I think that was to do with the wind. Anyway, after being so tired this week I was a bit worried, so I am happy to have completed the long run, and also I am now on blue level on Nike+! Which I think is 1000km but I do it in miles and I have gone 630 miles since May!! When I got home I was hungry so had a snack right away.
The chocolate milk was very rich, but I did feel in need of some energy by that point!
After a shower lunch was next on my to do list!
Some spicy tomato and bean soup, with ciabatta with roasted peppers, courgette and cream cheese. So good.
This afternoon I baked some banana cookies from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar (and yes I will be happy to do a review Emma 🙂 )for Andy to take with him as he is off out to watch the football. Talking of cookies, I had 2 of the chocolate ones last night and they were delicious! Amazing!
I went to the shops to pick up some bits (although the shops were so hot and when I was in the queue in Boots I actually thought I was going to faint it was so warm- I am still only in a vest now as I still feel sooooo hot), and then made some dinner. My plan was to make those chickpea pancakes, and fill them with a lentil veggie mix and bake. But I was hungry and tired and wanted to sit down, so I made a variation!
I made a lentil chilli type thing with peppers, courgette, spinach, lentils, tomatoes, chilli and garlic, and then I made some little chickpea flour balls with chickpea flour, water and rosemary. I thought they would spread a bit more in the oven, and they didn’t, but they were yummy still.
I will for sure be having some tea later to accompany my work (what a fun saturday night I have planned!). How was your Saturday? 🙂
