For those of you who live in Anchorage, you know this isn’t uncommon to see moose in the city occasionally. However, I usually don’t see many moose during the summer because they flee to the mountains. But this morning on my run, I saw two more moose–a mother and its baby!! (Sorry I don’t have a picture. I don’t carry my camera with me on my runs.)
I ran 6 miles today in 51 minutes this morning. I wasn’t feeling the best; my stomach felt kind of funny. I did have a bowl of Cherrios with milk and 1/2 of a multigrain bagel with peanut butter on to eat 3 hours before running. These are things I’ve had before and usually 3 hours is enough time to digest eveything, so I am not sure what the deal was.
After my run I knew I needed something to eat though, but I didn’t want anything heavy, so I made a large strawberry banana smoothie. It was nice and cool and refreshing.
Strawberry Banana Smoothie
- vanilla flavored soy protein powder
- plain yogurt
- frozen strawberries
I also snacked on some Annie’s Honey Bunny Grahams along with my smoothie. These are way better than graham crackers!
I have a weird quirk that my mouth desires ”wet” and “dry” foods together. It is difficult for me to eat a “wet” food without having something “dry” alongside it. soup + bread/crackers. salad + bread. cheese + crackers. Maybe it is my love of carbs?!?!
My stomach was still bothering me after a while, so I had some Yogi Lemon Ginger tea. This is my favorite tea right now–even if my stomach isn’t bothering me. I love the combination of lemon and ginger.
That would be bacon pancakes!! Yes, that’s right, bacon surrounded by super yummy Greek Yogurt Pancakes.
I actually didn’t try one, but Craig said they were “to die for.” I can only imagine after drizzling them with some pure maple syrup–a rich, melt-in-your-mouth taste.
Off to the gym to pump some iron!!
