This morning, school was delayed 2 hours so I definitely slept late. I really wanted to run, but the 30 degree weather didn’t sound too appealing.
Instead of running, I made myself a yummy protein pancake. I love these so much! I first found out about them from Sarah. And now I just love them so much!
On top was Greek yogurt, almond butter, and stevia mixed together. It’s a lot tastier than syrup or just almond butter.
Lunch wasn’t anything special because I was short for time and threw some vegetables together and a boiled egg. Not picture worthy.
When I got home from school, I came home, put my running clothes on, and headed out into the 55 degree weather and ran an amazing 5 miles in 45 minutes. Quite proud of myself.
I warmed up a mile (10:30 pace always) then tried to run between 8:45-8:20 pace. By the end of my 5 miles it all averaged out to 9:00 minute pace. Happy Audrey.
Okay, let’s get to the good stuff! I am making clean and delicious salmon cakes. I love these! And the recipe is from Kath so check it out here.
I changed it up a bit so here’s what I did:
- 2 14oz cans of salmon
- 4 TBSP bread crumbs or flax seed
- 2 tsp dried dill
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp Old Bay seasoning
- 2 eggs
- 3 TBSP Greek yogurt
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1/2 tsp spicy brown mustard
Directions: Preheat oven on low broiler. Mix everything in a big bowl. Place parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Make cakes/patties out of the mixture and you should get about 12 according to how big/small you make them.
I love salmon so much! If I could eat it all the time, I would. I like fish in general, but salmon is definitely my all time favorite.
Okay, that’s the end of that deliciousness.
I’ve got a planned long run of 10-11 miles tomorrow and will get back with you on that plus details of my upcoming race which is exactly 1 month away from yesterday! Eek!
Question of the Day
