Trails and donuts

Saturday morning started as all Saturdays should, with a great trail run. I met up with my friends Lori and Sandee for 15 miles.

It was great to have the company, and the weather was gorgeous.

It’s amazing how fast the miles flew by with good conversation.

When I got home, Steve and I worked on some things around the house. Very exciting stuff like finishing flooring, painting moldings, etc, etc. I love it when I feel productive.

I also wanted to bake something for my mom. On Friday afternoon I received the following email from her:

Hi Laura,

I delivered your bananas and rakes, and raked up a bag of leaves. Since it’s supposed to rain, I cut your grass.

Love,

Mom

Yep, she is pretty much the best ever. I whipped up some coconut carrot cake donuts based on this recipe. Instead of the coconut milk, I used Coconut Cream Concentrate from Tropical Traditions, which worked great.

For the glaze, I mixed about a cup of powdered sugar, 1TB coconut cream concentrate, and 2TB almond coconut milk. So good.

This morning’s 18 miler with Team in Training brought me to 68 miles for the week, 44 of which were on trails. I will continue to ramp into this week, which will culminate in a 35 mile trail run on Saturday. Then it’s vacation time!

Spring has sprung

Happy Spring! Admittedly, I am not usually the biggest fan of springtime. It is windy, rainy, cold, and I just want it to be summer already. This year I will take spring all year long if it stays like this. We have had near record high temperatures for the last week in southeastern Wisconsin. It is March 20th and I wore shorts to work. Life is good.

I am amazed at how my energy levels correspond to the weather. In the winter when it is cold and dark, I get home from work and all I want to do is lay on the couch, watch TV, and eat ice cream. The thought of doing anything productive is pretty much out of the question, and I have trouble keeping my eyes open past 9pm. Oh wait…that part is still true.

When it is warm and sunny, I can’t help but go, go, go. Take this past weekend for example. I started off St. Patty’s Day with a 25 mile trail run at my favorite running spot, Lapham Peak. I broke the run into 4 sections to make it more manageable mentally, and it went great. I experimented with eating more than usual and it paid off. Throughout the run I had 4 gels and a chocolate coconut chew Larabar. Even with the nearly 2500 ft of elevation gain throughout the run, I never felt bonky. It was around 60F when I started and 78F when I finished.

After the run I immediately refueled with a green smoothie for St. Patty’s Day.

Then it was off to my aunt and uncle’s house for a family birthday party. I love when we have family parties on the same day as my long run, because I get to eat good food all day long. My aunt prepared a traditional Irish feast of corned beef and cabbage, Irish soda bread, and even a vegetarian shepherd’s pie for me! It was all capped off with a DQ ice cream cake. The best way to celebrate a birthday if you ask me.

Hi Collin!

I hit the hay around 11pm on Saturday, and then was up at 4:40 am on Sunday to coach my TNT group. I covered 12 more miles (half running and half walking), and then went to a cookout that one of the teammates was having.

When I got home Sunday afternoon, my mom came over and helped me clear out our garden beds for a couple of hours. I also did laundry, cleaned the kitchen, and made a new tofu recipe for dinner. Who am I? I don’t even recognize this productive person. My point is this: my mood and energy level are very much affected by the weather. During the winter, I normally do my long run on the weekend and then need to take a nap and lay around for the rest of the day. I have exactly zero motivation to do much of anything. When the sun is shining, it is warm out, and it is light when I get home from work, I find myself getting stuff done like crazy.

To celebrate the first day of spring, I got a pedicure.

I wanted to apologize to the poor guy for the disgusting factor of my feet. Let’s just say with all of the running I’ve been doing it wasn’t pretty.

I also made myself a tropical smoothie bowl for breakfast this morning in honor of the warm weather.

The smoothie contained greek yogurt, coconut milk, a mango, a banana, chia seeds, maca powder, vanilla and cinnamon. I poured it into a bowl and topped it with Kashi GoLean cereal, tropical trail mix, and shredded coconut. It tasted like the Caribbean in a bowl. Yum!

How are you celebrating the first day of Spring?

Is your mood affected by the weather?

Five things Friday

Since I missed Three Things Thursday this week out of sheer laziness, I preset you with Five Things Friday. I hope the two things bonus will make up for my motivational failure. Without further ado:

1. I am racing an 8k tomorrow, and not looking forward to it for several reasons. I feel like I have completely lost all sense of speed in my legs over the past few weeks. Also, it is going to be cold, like really cold. And windy. Wind chills approaching -20. And it’s been snowing all day. Crap.

However, I am going to suck it up and not think about any of that, because tomorrow’s race will be about something much more important than myself and my incessant complaining about the weather. I will be dedicating the race to Sherry Arnold, a 43 year old wife, mother, and teacher from Montana who went out for a run on January 7th and never returned. There is a virtual run planned in her honor, and more information can be found here. Consider printing out your own bib and dedicating your workout tomorrow to Sherry. It doesn’t have to be running, it can be anything. Just move your body and think of Sherry. Simple.

2. I managed to try several new recipes this week worth mentioning:

Easy Nutella Brownie Cups - I brought these to my running group’s “holiday party” and they were devoured. Only three ingredients. Make them.

Quinoa Burgers – One of the best “burgers” I have made at home!

Curried Greek Yogurt Egg Salad - I have been craving hard-boiled eggs. Craving = satisfied.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Banana Bread – Yes, just yes. I found a wonderful use for my pb cups. Check out this pb to chocolate ratio:

I don’t know if I can ever buy Reese’s again.

The last one is not so much a recipe as an amazing snack combo that I have enjoyed every day this week:

3. As I mentioned, my Tuesday night running group had a “holiday” party this week. There was so much delicious food it was ridiculous. Pretty sure I ate at least eight homemade cookies, along with chips, guacamole, salad, bread and beer. Wednesday night I ran with the local trail running group. I brought the aforementioned Peanut Butter Banana bread to share after the run. This was the treat table:

You may notice my bread at the bottom right. The huge container in the back contains an entire tier of red velvet wedding cake. There were also about seven different varieties of cookies, macaroons, and baked goods. But don’t worry, there were some grapes to balance everything out. I don’t understand why I never lose any weight from running so much. Weird.

 4. I think I am going to stop at Target today for a couple of items. Necessities like paper towels, Chobani, shampoo, and perhaps a little Kleenex or TP. Does this happen to anyone else at Target?

How do they do that??

5. To the person that found my blog by Googling “ate too many pretzel m and m’s,” welcome. I feel your pain.

Tell me something totally random. And…go.

How did those get in my cart?

I had plenty of energy after fueling up on French Toast Sunday morning to tackle a huge shopping trip to Costco. I got all of my staples, including massive amounts of produce, salsa, eggs, cheese, etc. When I went to check out, imagine my surprise to find that a 3.75 lb bag of peanut butter cups had somehow accidentally fallen into my cart.

Not sure how that happened. So weird.

Oh well. Guess I will have to find a use for 150 nuggets of deliciousness now.

I used them as a comfy pillow last night, don’t judge.

Since I did my Saturday long run on the roads, I knew I needed to hit up the trails on Sunday. I waited until the afternoon when it was 40 and sunny, and headed out to the Ice Age Trail, the same trail that Steve and I ran on a few weeks ago. I made some sweet custom shoes to deal with the ice that I knew would be covering much of the trail.

Old trail shoes + sheet metal screws = cheap ice shoes!

I was so glad I did this, I don’t think I would have made it on the trail today without them. It was a mix of snow, mud, mud soup, and sheer ice. I took it slow and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. Afterwards I was caked in mud.

Pretty sure I still have some stuck underneath my toenails. That rounded out a great week of running: 52 miles total, with 14 on the trails.

The remainder of my Sunday was spent in serious food prep mode. I made a huge batch of granola, roasted 3 full trays of veggies, cooked a big pot of quinoa, and baked up some brownie bites for a little treat. I love having all of this stuff on hand during the week, it makes throwing together dinner so much easier.

Around 6pm I realized I was missing the Super Bowl commercials. When I asked Steve to turn it on, he informed me that we do not even get regular TV because we are not hooked up to an antenna. Oh. Bummer. So we spent the night watching Parks and Recreation on Netflix. Have you seen that show? We discovered it just recently and I am in love. It is very similar to The Office, and Amy Poehler just cracks me up.

Do you usually prep food on the weekends?

Important – tell me how to use up my peanut butter cups. (Besides the obvious straight-to-belly method) Thanks!

Perfect day for a trail run

I can’t get over the fact that today is January 8th, it was 40 degrees and sunny, and we have had next to no snow so far this year. I love it. With the beautiful weather, I asked Steve last night if he wanted to go trail running today. He was game. We were going to go in the morning, but it looked quite frosty and slick, so we decided to wait until the afternoon to give the sun a chance to warm everything up.

First things first, I fueled up with some delicious buckwheat pumpkin pancakes. I used this recipe, subbing coconut milk with a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar for the buttermilk. I also added some chocolate chips, because no pancake is complete without them.

I topped my cakes with the usual suspects. Peanut butter, banana, blackberries and maple syrup. These were not only tasty, but incredibly filling because of the buckwheat. Did you know that buckwheat is not actually a grain? It is in fact a fruit seed related to rhubarb. The protein in buckwheat contains the eight essential amino acids, and it is high in fiber and contains a rich supply of flavonoids. Buckwheat has also been found to lower blood pressure and reduce cholesterol. Healthy, delicious, and satisfying!

Ok, back to running.

We set out from Lapham Peak on the Ice Age Trail, planning on a 7 mile out and back run. About one mile in, we reached the Lapham Peak Tower and decided to climb to the top.

It’s quite the view from up there.

Then I saw the cutest thing that made my heart melt.

Say it with me….. “Awwwwwwwwwww.”

After taking in the view for a minute, we continued on our way. The trail conditions were not ideal. It was pretty much either super-muddy or icy the whole way. Despite the conditions, there were a lot of people out on the trail enjoying the day.

We reached the turnaround and headed back after snapping a quick pic.

We finished up just over 7 miles in 1:17, and I only fell once.

This capped off another great week of running for me, with over 50 miles in the bank. Here’s how it went down:

Monday – Treadmill intervals, 8×800 – 10 miles total

Tuesday – 6.7 mile group run, easy

Wednesday – 7 mile group night-time trail run on the same trail I ran today

Thursday – 6 mile group run, easy

Friday – rest day

Saturday – 15 miles, 8:10 average pace

Sunday – 7 mile trail run

Total – 51.71 miles

I just realized that only 2 out of 6 runs this week were by myself, the intervals on Monday and my long run on Saturday. I am loving running with other people, especially in the winter. It makes the time go by fast and is just plain fun.

Do you prefer to run/work out alone or with a group?

I would usually say alone, but with the right company group training is a blast.

Cake Mix Cookies

This morning I made the easiest cookies ever to bring to a Packer Party today (GO PACK!!)

Take one box of cake mix (I used Devil’s Food)

Mix in two eggs and 1/3 cup oil

Add mix in’s (I threw in a handful each of walnuts, craisins, white chocolate & dark chocolate chips)

Side note: I got this bag of the best chocolate chips on the planet at Costco for $9.99. The banana is there for size comparison.

Three and a half pounds of heaven in a bag right there.

Ok, back to the cookies. Mix everything together (I had to use my hands).

Drop onto a cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a rack.

Go for a twelve mile run while the cookies are cooling, fantasizing the whole time about devouring several upon your return. (Optional)

Try not to eat too many so you have some left to bring to your party (also optional).

I sampled one just to see if it was good. It was. I sampled one more just to be sure. I am sure. Go make them.

Our first Christmas tree in the new house is all decorated. It’s getting mighty festive around here. If only all of the presents were already wrapped and under the tree, I would be all set.

Settling in

Oh…hi!

{emerges from piles of moving boxes, paint rollers, flooring, miscellaneous tools, and general chaos}

Good news! I am in fact alive and Steve and I are all moved in to the new house. We are slowly getting settled, and it feels good to be done with the major deconstruction phase and on to the organizing stage. There is still lots of work to be done, but the really messy stuff is over. Thank goodness. I am excited to start showing you what we all did, complete with before, during and after pics.

Through all of the chaos, running has been my constant, as usual. I have been consistently logging 35-45 miles per week. I have also been figuring out new running routes and exploring the neighborhoods. Nothing will ever be able to replace running at the lakefront in downtown Milwaukee every day, but we do live close to a nice rec trail now that will be good for long runs. We are also much closer to my favorite trail running spot, which I am really excited about. I ran there a few weeks ago with my friend Cara and ended up biting it big time in the mud.

 

I was pretty much caked from head to toe.

But it was still a blast!

And since it is the holiday season, I will leave you with the only thing I have baked so far: Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles with Cinnamon M&M’s.

I followed this recipe exactly for the cookies, then pressed the Cinnamon M&M’s in before baking. They were deliciously chocolaty and spicy!

Question: What is your favorite holiday cookie? Bonus points if you link to the recipe!

There are so many good ones, but I think my favorite of all time have to be the Chocolate Wheeties cookies that my mom makes. Maybe I can get her to share the recipe she uses. Hint hint mom!

Sunday Flapjacks

Our Saturday was lazy. Real lazy. We did get in a nice easy 14 mile run first thing in the morning, so I didn’t feel too bad about the rest of the day. It was spent on the couch reading, napping, and watching movies. (Side note: I finished the book Room by Emma Donoghue and it was fantastic). Finally around 7pm, prompted by BOGO coupons for Qdoba & Cold Stone Creamery and our growling stomachs, we headed out to feed. I could have done without the Qdoba,  but I powered through since it was a precursor to ice cream. Please go to Cold Stone and order the pumpkin ice cream with graham cracker crust and Twix mix-ins. Trust me. We got home and parked ourselves right back on the couch to watch Bridesmaids (OMG!). 

Since our Saturday was spent in the most lazy way possible, I am declaring today the most productive Sunday ever. I hate to admit that our condo has not been thoroughly cleaned since probably several months before Ironman. That puts us back at early summer. Gross? I know. I have no  excuse now that I am not spending 10 hours of my weekend training. I just hate cleaning.

I knew that I would need proper fuel for this endeavor, so I whipped up a special Sunday breakfast.

I used Kodiak Cakes Flapjack & Waffle Mix to make flapjacks. I don’t know how they are different than pancakes, but go with me here. I topped them with peanut butter and apple topping. For the apple topping I heated 1/2 TBSP of coconut oil in a pan, added one chopped organic fuji apple, and sautéed it until the pieces were slightly soft. I then sprinkled in a hefty dose of cinnamon and 1 TSP of maple syrup. It turned out perfectly sweet and delicious.

I am all carbed up and ready to be a lean, mean cleaning machine.

What are you doing with your Sunday?

No banana left behind

Monday night as I was perusing the produce department at the grocery store, I caught something out of the corner of my eye on the “reduced to sell” shelf. Bananas! Lots and lots of ripe bananas, for $0.29/pound. I may have squealed, and then proceeded to load up my cart.

I scored 19 bananas for under $2.50. The checkout lady quizzically asked what my plan was for all of those bananas. I told her that besides banana bread, banana cake, and all things baked, I would be freezing them to use in smoothies, banana soft serve, and other treats. She was flabbergasted to learn that you could freeze bananas. I did my good deed for the day by letting her in on this well-known fact little secret.

When I woke up today (my day off) and saw a dreary nasty rainy day outside,

I knew I wanted to make a special breakfast. Though a reason for a special breakfast is never necessary, I felt especially compelled by the yucky weather.

I knew I had some leftover cooked quinoa in the fridge, and I had pancakes on the brain. Thus, Coconut Quinoa Banana Pancakes were born.

Coconut Quinoa Banana Pancakes

Adapted from Off Her Cork

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ C Cooked Quinoa
  • ½ C Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
  • ½ C Oat Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking powder
  • ½ TBSP Ground cinnamon
  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 1 ¼ C Unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 TBSP Wheat Germ
  • 2 TBSP Ground Flax
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions

In a small mixing bowl, mash the banana, then add the coconut milk and vanilla extract. In a large mixing bowl, combine all other ingredients. Add the liquid mixture to the quinoa mixture. Stir just until everything is combined.

Heat a griddle over medium heat. Spray with cooking spray and drop pancake mixture by the spoonful onto the griddle. Cook for about 4 minutes on one side or until the middle starts to pop with air bubbles. Gently flip and allow to finish cooking on the other side, about another 3 minutes.

Makes 10 medium-sized pancakes.

These turned out so good. The quinoa added a great texture, and the banana gave just a hint of sweetness. I topped mine with Trader Joes Crunchy PB with flax (the best PB ever), some frozen raspberries that I thawed in the microwave, and a drizzle of maple syrup.

After I ate these three pancakes, I was still starving so I toasted another tiny pancake and ate that one too. I am blaming my ferocious appetite this morning on the fact that I worked out three times yesterday. I did a 75 min swim in the early morning, a 30 min strength training session during the day, and a speedy 7-mile run after work. I am loving getting back into the Ironman training groove and doing multiple workouts on most days. Mark my words because I may be singing a different tune a month or two from now.

I really wanted to do my first outdoor ride of the year today, but it looks like the weather is not going to cooperate and I will be chained to the bike trainer once more. I am riding outside on Friday and Sunday no matter what, so let’s hope Mother Nature can get with the program and give us some decent weather.

What is your favorite: pancakes, waffles, or french toast?

I love them all, but hold a special place in my heart for pancakes.

Clean eating week, or I want coffee

This past Monday I embarked on a personal challenge to eat clean for one week, hoping to give my body everything it needs to recover well and rest up. Why? Ironman training officially starts next week, and after running 2 marathons in 3 weeks, I am feeling a little bit run down. I have also been feeling like I consume way too much sugar on a daily basis, not to mention I am tired a lot of the time and don’t sleep very well.

So, here are the guidelines I set for myself. I didn’t base this on any specific detox or diet plan, rather I drew off of the research I have done in the past and what I thought would work for my body. I generally eat very healthfully (if not a little heavy on the desserts :-)), so this is not really a radical change for me as much as a “cleaning up.”

1. No added sugar in any form. Fruit and small amounts of dried fruit are ok. This means no honey, molasses, maple syrup, etc. Nothing that is added to food as a sweetener.

2. No caffeine.

3. Green smoothies for breakfast every day.

4. At least one huge salad every day.

5. No processed foods, no white flour (these kind of go hand in hand I think)

6. I wanted to do no dairy, but I had some organic liquid yogurt that was already opened at the beginning of the week. I refuse to waste it, so I have been using it up in my smoothies. Other than that, no dairy or eggs.

Today is day 4 of my little challenge, and I am happy to report I have been sticking to it. I have a history of terrible will power and uncontrollable sugar eating at night, so I didn’t really know if I would be able to do it. I discovered that with some advance preparations it really hasn’t been too hard. The worst part by far is not drinking coffee. I miss my beloved black gold so much, and cannot wait until we are reunited. Here’s how things went down.

Sunday afternoon I prepped some things for the week. I boiled a pound of pinto beans, 2/3 of which went into the freezer and 1/3 into the fridge to use for the week. I also made a big pot of brown rice, homemade hummus, and a batch of Mmmm Sauce to slather all over everything throughout the week. The key for me is having some things like this on hand because I am too lazy to do too much during the week. I want to be able to come home and prepare my dinner in less than 15 minutes. Another key has been packing my lunches the night before. I need to get into this habit again before I am training 15 hours a week anyways, so I’m glad I got the ball rolling. I have been making a big salad at night to take for lunch. These have mostly consisted of mixed greens or spinach, peppers, tomatoes, pinto beans with adobo seasoning, pepitas, and avocado. The first few days also included brown rice until I ran out. I also packed a small container of sauce, some fruit, and some hummus & veggies. My snacks at work often include some sort of bar (Luna, Clif, etc), but these are off-limits because of the sugar. I made up a bag of trail mix with raw almonds, raw walnuts, raw cashews, pepitas, and raisins. I have been snacking on small handfuls of that throughout the day, along with apples and oranges.

Breakfasts have been great. I love green smoothies, so this isn’t hard for me, but I do miss the variety of sometimes having oats, yogurt, cereal, etc.

This morning’s smoothie was my favorite yet. It had a cup of liquid yogurt, an orange, 1 packet of Amazing Grass Orange Dreamsicle Green Superfood, 1 T chia seeds, 1 T pepitas, 1 frozen banana, a splash of vanilla extract, and 2 huge handfuls of spinach. It seriously tasted like an orange dreamsicle. I have had some fun lately picking up sample packets at Whole Foods of different things to put in my smoothies. I was very impressed with the taste of the Amazing Grass, considering what it is.

I have also been getting a little creative with my dinners, while still keeping prep time to a minimum.

I love making green wraps. These are rainbow chard leaves filled with Mmmm sauce, sweet potato, and sunflower seeds. On the side is some steamed broccoli and carrots with smoked paprika and hummus. I almost could not finish this plate, it was so filling.

After dinner I have either been having nothing, herbal tea, or if I am hungry a snack of brown rice heated with coconut milk & cinnamon with some raisins and natural peanut butter. Brown rice probably isn’t the best thing to eat at night, but I suppose it is better than cereal with chocolate chips :-) I am actually amazed how easy it has been to cut out the added sugar. I find that I am not snacking nearly as much, and I am not experiencing uncontrolled eating at night. I am also amazed how incredibly hard it has been to give up coffee.

Let’s talk about coffee. Before this week, I could not tell you the last time I went one single day without it. The very first thing I do every single morning (after peeing of course), is make a cup of coffee in my single cup brewer. I love everything about coffee, the smell, the taste, the caffeine. I am getting a craving right now just typing this. That said, I have never considered myself a coffee junkie. I have my one cup in the morning, then sometimes I stop on the way into work for another cup. On occasion my coworkers and I do a Starbucks run during the day as a treat, but this is not an everyday occurrence. I do not drink it in the afternoon because I will not sleep. Instead of coffee this week, I have been drinking caffeine free green tea or herbal tea. This morning I had hot lemon water because I finally got a chance to go to Whole Foods yesterday for organic lemons. Monday morning I was tired, but not too bad, and I figured some of that was from running a marathon on Saturday and not sleeping well. Monday afternoon the headache hit. It wasn’t terrible, but it was annoying. Monday night I had a massage, and I asked for help getting “flushed out.” My legs weren’t sore from the marathon, so she worked on my whole body and it was heavenly.

Monday night I was a zombie and went to bed early. I got at least 8 hours of sleep, yet I woke up on Tuesday feeling like I had been hit by a bus. I had a headache in full force, and all I wanted to do for the first half of the day was curl up in a ball and sleep. And drink coffee. I ate lunch outside on Tuesday because it was nice out, and that helped to perk me up a little bit. My headache went away by late afternoon on Tuesday and hasn’t been back since. I think I am over the caffeine withdrawal part, but I still miss coffee so much. I was so disappointed last night before I went to bed when I thought about waking up in the morning and not being able to have my coffee. Lemon water is just not the same.

As far as the diet side of things, I have to say I really haven’t noticed any changes. I don’t feel better or worse. I am still tired a lot of the time. I haven’t lost weight. Though weight loss was not my goal with this, I was hoping it would be a nice side effect. I am still hanging on to 10 stubborn pounds that I gained over the winter, and I would really like to get rid of it as I get into Ironman training. Oh, and it would be nice if my clothes fit again too. I have kind of come to the conclusion that one week is not going to be long enough to notice a big difference. As I said, it’s not like I didn’t already eat healthy before. If I had gone from eating fast food and junk to this healthy diet cold turkey, I’m sure I would have noticed a big difference. I did have some tortilla chips and salsa (which may or may not have contained sugar) yesterday at a Mexican restaurant. This is the only thing I’ve eaten this week that didn’t fall within my guidelines. I am thinking I need to stick to this for at least another week after this week, if not a month. However, I can say almost certainly that it will not be that long before I have coffee again. After this week, I may start to incorporate a small amount of natural added sugars like honey or maple syrup, but maybe not. I am going to give it a few more days and see how my body feels, then I will reassess the next step.

Are you still with me? Sorry for the long and rambling post, but I wanted to get this all down so I can look back on what I did. I will keep updating every few days with my progress.

Have you ever done any sort of “detox” or clean eating diet? Did you notice a lot of changes? How long did you stick with it?
