Thank you for all your encouragement, my run Saturday went very well, I heeded all I read and started out a little slower than I would have if I knew I had a walk coming up. I paused for about 30 seconds to cross a road but otherwise did the whole 20 minutes at 12:07 min/mile run pace
YAY go ME :-)
I made Homemade LaraBars last night, they are very easy and relatively quick to make. I would have to tally up the cost of nuts, seeds, fruit etc to see how cost effective it is but the till slip has been thrown away - OOOPS!
And they were yummy :-)
I did add flaxseed and kinda winged the "1/2 cup quantities" a bit (I used a cappuccino cup to 2/3s fullish. Next time I would leave the nuts a little chunkier I think.
Along with one of these *Lush Lara Bars* I had a smoothie but ran our of spinach for a full portion so I added in some salad, turns out there was some beetroot in there so my "green monster" turned a bit brown heeheehee, it still tasted scrummy :-)
I was up early bells to get a run in as we had a busy day today and we missed gym so I squeezed in half an hour kettlebells in, felt GOOOOD. I'm really pleased with how the weights and run/walk combo thing is going, long may it continue.
