We invited my college roommate, Alaa’, for breakfast this morning (I’ve been trying to get together with her all week and this was my only available time before she goes back to Florida!) On the menu? Pancakes!!!
Since Alaa’ was coming right at 10, we had motivation to get our run done first thing. I came down around 6:30 and played on my computer with hot tea until 7:45 when I got the husband up and we set out. But first I had 2 oz of banana…
We did 5.1 miles around the neighborhood (If you don’t know about it, Google Pedometer is great for tracking runs!) I was a little stiff. This summer we were running twice a week and I got smoother and faster, but since it’s freezing and dark at 5 a.m. we’ve had to keep runs to Sundays only and I think I’ve slipped a little. Now that my class schedule starts later than work, hopefully we can run mid-week again, or at least on the warm days!! 400 kcal burned.
While I was packing and getting ready, the husband made the whole wheat buttermilk pancakes. He also set the dining room table all pretty with candles and little bowls for our toppings 🙂 I topped my pancake with banana slices, peanut butter, a bit of walnuts, and about 1/2 a tbsp of maple syrup.
Also had some egg nog tea:
Total kcal: 375 (plus 50 more for pre-run banana)
Off to pack and get ready for my trip!!
