Weekend Pancakes

Is it just me or are pancakes a weekend thing?

While on my run I had one thing on my mind PANCAKES! I considered going out to eat for breakfast, but decided I make a mean p’cake at home. Plus – at home you can add almond butter!!!

In the mix: oatmeal, cottage cheese, egg beaters, baking soda, almond milk, cinnamon, stevia. Whirl in blender and cook! I also added a whole sliced banana while cooking. I topped them with maple/agave syrup and almond butter :) IMG_6988

Before my run I ate half a bagel with almond butter and coffee. I don’t normally drink hot coffee (in fact, I usually only drink coffee in the afternoon) but I was cold and it sounded good. IMG_6986

Run: I did a sad 8 miles. I meant to do 10, but it’s hard to push myself to 10 miles when it’s “just because”. I’m not training for a race so I don’t feel like I had a purpose. I guess I need to run for a reason :) I need to find a race!

Now I’m off to figure out my living situation…

    You should be so proud of your eight miles! You just came back from an injury and it sounds like you’re right back in the swings of things. I just came back after a month of bad shin splints and I ran eight miles this morning too. I know distance, as well as speed, is all about perspective, but I still think you’re doing great. :)

    Yes…pancakes = so a weekend thing! :) Looks yummy! Congratz on the 8 miles. I would never run 8 miles just because..lol Maybe only if I were training for something 😛

    Great job on the 8 miles – I’m training for a race and still having a hard time getting motivated!

    Like Amanda, I had banana chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast – it is a weekend thing!

    Way to go on the 8 miles! I think that is awesome that you would do that for funzies! I haven’t built my for fun runs up to more than about 4 – so be proud of it! Also, I have to say that I loooooove pancakes on the weekend. But I too would rather make them at home as I think they always come out better. And you can get more creative. My favorite combo is pumpkin pancakes with carob chips. :)
