Yesterday morning I went out to run my 9 miles. I wanted to average a 9:30 pace because that’s what I needed to do. So what I did was trail behind my dad while he averaged his 8:20ish (really fast pace) pace. I ended up averaging under 9:30! And I wasn’t completely tired on mile 8.
And I found out that my watch has Auto Lap for every mile, so I got to see all my lap paces
- Lap 1 (warm-up): 10:38
- Lap 2: 9:11
- Lap 3: 9:11
- Lap 4: 9:09
- Lap 5: 9:05
- Lap 6: 9:23
- Lap 7: 9:02
- Lap 8: 9:32
- Lap 9: 9:20
When I got home I did a quick workout consisting of:
- 20 Jump Squats
- 30 Side Jump Lunges
- 10 One legged Pushups
This morning I made a big batch of protein pancakes for the family
I ended up burning mine on one side…I lost track of how long it had been on there and I’ve had some bad experience of flipping an uncooked pancake and it turns into a flop
But I mixed peanut butter, greek yogurt, and stevia together to create the topping for my pancake. So good! And we thawed out some frozen strawberries and sliced those. And I drizzled a little molasses over mine.
Here’s what I put in my protein pancake batter this morning: (Made 4 large pancakes)
- 2 medium bananas
- 1 cup of egg whites
- 3 TBSP ground flax seed
- 4 scoops of protein powder
- lots of cinnamon
- A little bit of almond flour (not sure about the amount) (Optional)
Place all the ingredients in order. Mash the bananas first. Pre heat a pan on medium and make sure it is hot and that you have sprayed it with olive oil spray or PAM.
Flip after it begins to bubble all over the pancake (usually about 3 minutes)
Have a good Sunday!
