So today began not so great, but I turned it around!
I slept in... and missed my race. Everyone's nightmare, right?
So I made some pancakes to make myself feel better from this recipe: Banana Bread Protein Pancakes by Peanut Butter Fingers.
The only difference? I forgot to oil the pan so mine stuck to the bottom... but then I got to slough off all the delicious crispy bits and add to the top ;) I also served mine with cocoa powder instead of maple syrup, because cocoa powder is amazing... and so were the pancakes. I was sooo full afterwards!
But... I was still determined to do my 5k. Even though I had missed the event, I decided I'd go and run a 5k around my house at "race pace". I totally gave it my all and now I'm knackered! But... I beat 30 mins :) I did it in 28.52! Was so stoked, my usual 5k time is something like 32 minutes. Probably wasn't the best doing it only an hour after the pancake consumption though, I could feel the pancakes moving around in my stomach! Oh well!
After that, I got stuck into some uni work and managed to knock out an assignment due on Friday, so I'm feeling pretty good now, definitely turned what could have been a bad day into a good one.
I also ate half the kitchen during my study, and it was delicious...
