Pancakes, Hills and the Sunday Slob.
|February 20, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
I had an awesome Sunday. Sundays are just generally great, a) because there are pancakes involved, b) because it means a hill run, and c) because it means being a Sunday Slob.
a) Pancake Sunday!! Did you know I am officially the worst pancake flipper in the world? Case in point:
The Katie obsession continued that evening with yet another Banana Bread Muffin For One, topped with raw chocolate pudding as frosting and shredded coconut:
Sorry for the Katie obsession. I am not joking when I say you HAVE to try these and her recipes in general because they will send you into a FOODGASMIC COMA.
b) Hill run!! I have a love-hate relationship with hills, because they totally kick my butt! I did manage to up the speed of the 30 min pre-set hill workout this week slightly, with the first half in 8.00min/mile and the second half in 7.47 min/mile…yahooo!
Her book is amazing. If you are interested in running, I really recommend it!
c) Sunday Slob
Slob Example #1: A lie in. When you have pancakes to make, and a church service to get to, a lie-in means sacrifices. And that meant no hair-brushing, no make-up, and not even changing out of my PJ top. Priorities people!!
I just didn’t take off my coat. Our secret, k?
Slob Example #2: Work procrastination. I settled down with the laptop and vegan instant soup-in-a-mug to tackle some work, and then doing no work at all, and instead bookmarking 1000 more recipes to make.
This happens every time. Bad Emma!!
Slob Example #3: Cereal munching straight from the packet. I couldn’t be bothered to make a proper snack after my workout, so the cereal and I got well acquainted on my bed, and got caught in the act by my momma.
So now I’m off to finish possibly the only productive thing I did all day: washing these bad boys after yesterday’s run.
That’s how I spend my Sundays.
So how did you spend your Sunday? Bonus points for anyone who wore their PJ’s to church too.
Are you a pancake person, and if so, what is your fave flavour or recipe? Please tell me you love pancakes as much as I do, or I will cry.
What are you looking forward to this week? I’m looking forward to tomorrow! I’m going with a friend to the Hummus Bros hummus bar for lunch, and then to Whole Foods! Hopefully I’ll get in a run too, and it’ll be the perfect day methinks!
Hope you’ve had a great weekend friends!!
