An Achy 8 Miles and Recovery Banana Pancakes

Yesterday I ran 8 miles on the treadmill.  This was no easy feat for me.  I didn't eat enough beforehand so I was really struggling to get through it.  I started running out of energy at mile 5, and really had to push myself to finish it.
I really wanted to do the 8 miles because I needed to get it under my belt.  The 10 mile race is coming up, and I only have a few more long runs on my training schedule.  I have to make each one count!
I finished in one hour and 24 minutes.  I felt a little achy after so I iced my knees and relaxed for the rest of the day. 

This week's Fitness Schedule:
Monday: 3 mile run
Wednesday: 4 mile run
Thursday: 2 mile run
Saturday: 8 mile run
(Hopefully I can fit some yoga in there somewhere.)

This morning I had wanted to go to this free Crossfit event, but I realized that I haven't given myself a rest day in over a week.  The event was called "Tough Love" and it was the WOD (workout of the day) and then an hour yoga class.  I really wanted to go because I thought it would be great to get to try Crossfit for free since it can be pretty expensive.  Oh well, I decided to skip the class and make some banana pancakes instead.

I was really channeling Jack Johnson this morning.
I'd share the recipe, but I didn't make them from scratch.  We just used box mix and added some chopped up bananas to the mixture.

When they were done, we sprinkled them with more chopped bananas, powdered sugar, cinnamon, and maple syrup.

I definitely made the right decision this morning. Pancakes > Crossfit.

 One of the pancakes accidentally came out in a heart shape.  How sweet!

Weekend breakfast's are the best!
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday!  I'm off to frost some Valentine's Day cupcakes for my work party tomorrow.
Pictures to come!
