20 miles and other projects September 24-29, 2008

Dinner – Monday, September 29, 2008: pigs in a blanket a.k.a. turkey hot dogs wrapped in crescent rolls. I’ve been craving these for a week! I sliced a few franks down the middle and stuffed them with reduced fat cheddar cheese. These guys were kind of high in sodium, but relatively healthy. The turkey franks had 45 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 6 grams of protein each and I used Pillsbury reduced fat crescent rolls (90 calories, 4.5 grams fat, 2 grams of protein).
Sunday, September 28, 2008: 20 miles! Weather was yucky, rainy, humid, and GROSS. I felt pretty sorry for myself for the first few miles. Pulled myself together around mile 7. Legs and feet started to ache around mile 15, but nothing serious. Tried Clif shot bloks. Grade: A+ for taste, A- for convenience, B for digestibility (must drink more water with these guys).

Below is a photo of my post-run refuel: sprouted grain bread with pb and 1/2 banana, greek yogurt sprinkled with Kashi Go Lean Crunch, celery with pb, powerade zero. Not pictured: small plum, kashi chewy bar.
Skillet Cornbread: This was pretty healthy – I used skim milk, organic eggs, smart balance, and whole grain corn flour. The result was a bit dry – next time I’ll use 1/2 all purpose flour and 1/2 corn flour.
