Yesterday I worked from home to take care of tires and such for my car, and had noticed a few days ago a few browned bananas on the fridge. Ok, so this isn’t the purely training part of this post yet, but it was yummy! I baked them into a yummy healthy banana bread! I found the recipe in one of Holly’s cookbooks, and we had all the ingredients and it was fun and easy! I think our oven runs a bit hot, but I still think it turned out pretty well. Mmmm I’ve eatten tons of it! There is only like a quarter of the loaf left already (s’ok, with the ingredient substitutions and additions I made (yogurt butter spread and adding walnuts) it is only 2727 cals for the whole loaf.
Alice (who is at my old college) is borrowing Holly’s car, and last night Mike and I dropped it off (along with a slice of banana bread) and then ran home, weaving about to get in about 5 miles. It was a nice run. I am enjoying running at night while all the xmas lights are up and on. Makes for some pretty viewing, which makes running at an easy pace easier mentally.
This AM it was up and to the pool! Swimming is starting to feel a bit better again, and mentally it was easier to get there today. Got in 3000 yds in 65 min (250 warmup, 100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 400, 300, 200, 100, 250 cooldown – resting about 30 sec between). mmm cholorine!
And tonight: riding to Mike and going out to dinner with some friends of his. Should be fun!
