Run 3/18/09 and a recipe

I wasn't feeling quite right, so I cut my 60min run down to 45min. My stomach just wasn't agreeing with me for whatever reason. I can always make up the 15min some other time. Anyway, the run went better than expected considering I was on the track. I'm convinced that I run slower on flat services. It just feels so much harder to me. I felt like I was hardly moving. I had a decent pace though. Go figure.

Anyway, I've been all rawlicious lately. Right now, I'm enjoying a frozen ripe banana, blended with a bit of almond milk (homemade - I feel so natural), some cacao powder, and a sprinkle of cacao nibs. Oh, and in case you're interested, my breakfast has been 1/2 cup of soaked steel cut oats, 1/2 mashed banana, 2 tbsp dried coconut, some raisins, some chopped walnuts, a sprinkle of cinnamon, a dash of salt, and a squirt of agave. The first time I ate it, I kept staring at my bowl in disbelief at how good it was. Now, I can't wait to eat breakfast in the mornings. Damn, I just remembered that I'm out of raisins now. Oh well.

How long do you soak your oats? Overnight? Sounds good and healthy. I have a hard time running on 100% flat, too. I think it's because there's no variety in terms of leg muscles used.

Do you want to come to my house and make me breakfast in the morning?

Don't worry for the 15 minutes cut. To run is important. We have a different breakfast: only cappuccino and cornetto (milk & coffe and an typical italian cake with marmalade).

Reading your post made me hungry! You had a nice 45 minute run, normally that's plenty unless you're training for something. I like your new banner.
