I'm sad that I didn't get in my 20 miles this Saturday, but with everything else I'm not too concerned.
This is the part where I complain about my lack of abs, even though I haven't done anything in WEEKS that resembles core work. Seriously. The best thing for the abs lately is laughing about the prospect of actually doing ab work. Oops. Speaking of muffin tops....
How gorgeous is this banana bread muffin? I made them yesterday, using Kari's Famous Banana Bread Recipe as inspiration. Head there for the main recipe. I only changed one or two things-replacing half the flour for oatmeal and forgoing the butterscotch chips on top. Instead of a loaf I made muffins, and they were perfect! I may or may not have had four of them last night and pretended that was dinner. Long runs = excuses to eat whatever you want and it doesn't count for 24 hours. True story.
I haven't baked anything in a while, and it was so fun to make! I feel the baking urge coming on now, and I'm ready for the next recipe!
What is your favorite thing to bake? Want to link up a recipe?
I like making oatmeal cookies best, and getting them really crispy! I am excited to make something using pumpkin soon though. Any suggestions for my next baking mission?
What fitness-related activity are you most proud of this week?
Can I pick two? I am really proud of sticking to my race plan at the 4-mile race and meeting my goals. But I'm also really proud of myself for listening to my body yesterday and taking it easy afterwards.
