Pumpkin in July <3

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 10:46 am

Sorry i haven’t been posting much.  I’ve been pretty scattered-brained these past few days.  My calves are no longer sore which is good, and in one week, I’ll be heading off to cross country camp 🙂 YAY! 

So yesterday, I went for a five mile run and did two of those miles as intervals.  Man, I was exhausted afterwards!  I slept like a rock last night lol.  It was hard.  My coach wants me to get faster so he told me to do interval training twice a week.  I hope that i do get faster because this is my senior year coming up and i really want to get at least a 24 or better in a meet.

This morning for breakfast i used some canned pumpkin to make pumpkin pie oatmeal and i would post the pic except wordpress isn’t cooperating with me today 😦

Some intense miles the other day… and some intense eats :)

So, i am sooo sore from Tuesday’s run.  My friend and I decided to do around three miles of our six mile run barefoot which felt so good considering it was super hot, but i didn’t realize how much running barefoot works out your calfs lol!  Oh well, the more sore i am, i’m hoping the more muscle i build and the more muscle i build, the faster i become!   … Hopefully.

So the buckwheat flour tastes a little funny but it’s pretty good so long as you get used to it.

I used it to make some pretty good pancakes yesterday for lunch.  I put a tiny bit of coffee just to give it that kick that i wanted.

Heres the recipe (they pretty much look like all the other pancakes i make except darker):
–1/4 cup of buckwheat flour

–1/3 cup of non-dairy milk

–1/4 teaspoon of instant coffee

–1/4 teaspoon of baking powder

–some sweetner such as stevia or sugar (to taste).

1. Heat up your pan to about medium, medium-low with some oil on it.

2. Mix up your ingredients.

3. Pour some of the batter onto the skillet or pan.

4. Flip em when bubbles begin forming on the top.

5. Enjoy, of course!

*Makes two decent sized pancakes 🙂 and you can also make more if you so desire.

Also yesterday I made some delicious muffins that I like, but my brother says they have a funky aftertaste.  Must be the buckwheat.  It tastes totally different than regular wheat, and I will definately have to experiement with it :).

Welp, today, i have to run with my team again and i certainly look forward to it.  Also, in about a week and a half I’ll be getting ready to go to Cross Country Camp– the most brutal week of the summer (I’m sooo excited!!) Plus, it’s super fun since we go swimming and play lots of games as well as running like 13+miles in one day.  The farthest I’ve ever run is 7 miles, but i think I can do more if i put my mind to it :).

Have a good Thursday!

And I promise I’ll post more :), but maybe not during camp since I’ll have no access to internet or a computer.

So… what should I make??

Filed under: Uncategorized — crazyrunnerchick @ 2:26 pm

I just got some buckwheat flour, and I’m trying to think of what to make…

I also got some super dark chocolate which really cheered me up after having my bike malfunction on me when i was going home from the store.  Not fun at all lol. 

I’m thinking of making some pancakes before i go out running with my cross country team.  Pancakes and running always mix well with me as well as peanut butter and running.

I’m kind of all over the place today.  I keep telling myself that I’ll apply to more colleges or something productive over the summer, but it just never works out lol.  I’m pretty lazy that way.

Well, I’ll definately let you all know how my pancakes will go.  In the mean time, I’ll talk about running.

Recently, my whole team has practically been outrunning me, so yesterday, I picked up the speed a little bit (right around a 9 min mile pace), and I did die!  I don’t know about you, but whenever I try to pick up the pace in running, I’m always afraid that my endurance will give out, so maybe I’ll just run really fast and not worry about endurance because, i mean, i can always slow down if i feel like dying, right?

Today, I imagine that we’ll be doing a fountain run which is going to the fountain in this one business by the bike path since its so hot.  There’s a heat advisory today, but i think I’ll be okay since we run closer to evening than afternoon and the heat advisory is supposed to end by this afternoon.

Well, that’s pretty much it.  I’ll post a gluten-free pancake recipe tomorrow and probably revise my recipes page.

Have a good day, and so long as you’re not under a heat advisory or anything, go outside and enjoy the summer weather! 🙂

I really haven’t fallen off the face of the earth…or died

So, my dad had this past week off, so i was over at his house, and unfortunately, his computer got stolen.  We’re not sure who did it.  That’s why i haven’t been posting XP.  Oh well, my dad functions without a computer, and he typically keeps everything on file anyway.  He’s so organized that way :).

So, this past week, I attempted to make strawberry shortcake, but a little girl in our neighborhood ate all of our strawberries when we had a bonfire.  I think it went to a worthy cause lol.  Instead i made pineapple shortcake which turned out fab, but the best part was the whipped cream :P.  Here’s a picture of it on pancakes:

so so good!

Ingredients:

3/4 cup of non dairy milk
1/4 cup of flour
3/4 cup of non dairy butter (i used earth balance whipped :P)
1 cup of powdered sugar
1. In a sauce pan, mix the milk and flour together and put on medium-low until keep stirring until it becomes very thick.
2. Place it in the fridge and chill completely.
3. Then, mix the butter and powdered sugar thoroughly and add in the milk/flour mixture.
4. Keep stirring and stirring, but make sure to not over work it. 
5. Put it in the fridge until it’s ready to be eaten.
A little runny, but it’s soooo good on pancakes and other goodies.  You may even wanna put it on cookies or something.
So this morning, i went on a lovely six miler with some friends and i was sooo slow.  Idk, i feel good, I’m just slllooowww.  I try really hard, but i guess it’s because I’m short or something.  I don’t know.  I’ll get faster maybe.
I hope you had a good week ❤
