#RECIPEFRIDAY and a Running Update...

This week has just flown by and...

I can't believe it's already Friday!

That being said...

Can you believe it's been a month (tomorrow) since I ran last?!

Yep. One. Whole. Month.

My last run.
It was an amazing one.
I just went with the flow.
(And yes, I worked my way to this distance. I didn't rush it!)

When I last updated you on my shin issue...

I had mentioned that I was going to get things checked out.

Let's just say...

I'm waiting to hear back as to whether or not I have a tibial stress fracture.

Ya, you read right. A possible stress fracture. (I'm crossing my fingers that it's not!)

Having said that...

I was given the green light to bike and such so...

That's what I've been doing instead while on break from running (and some elliptical too!)! (I'm not sure I'll be able to run the half-marathon race I signed up for later next month...we shall see. A total bummer though since my running was going so well! wannnnh!)

But you know what...

I have been faster on my bike than ever before! (I'm feeling strong, that's for sure!)

He takes my breath away <3
I took Little M out for her first ride of the season.
She stayed on my wheel the whole time!
Awesome, she is!

Now I realize I'm making light of the running situation but...

Better be doing something than nothing while I wait for my results! (And since I was given the okay for cycling, you better believe I've been taking advantage of it!)

On the topic of making things...

I've been experimenting with my sourdough bread by using different blends of flours as of late.


Some of which include...

Kamut...


And...

Emmer.

I made sandwiches with these slices of bread :)

Both are very distinguishable in flavour and both are delicious in taste! (Also, they are both ancient grains. High in protein and lower in gluten content.)

If anything...

I'm looking forward to loafing around again this weekend!


On that note...

Let's get to recipe sharing!

If you have something you've been making and loving as of late...

Share it!



I can't wait to see what you've cooked up!


Have a lovely everyone!

I had to take a picture of this beautiful view.

  1. Oh no, the two words runners are most afraid of. I am sorry to hear that, but that is a good time to reflect that you moved a little too fast with your training. The biking will keep your fitness. You should check out my strengthening exercises post, and use the shin/calf ones to strengthen the muscles around your shin so they can support your training. Hope you have a wonderful weekend otherwise, lots of loafing around :)

  2. I've never had a stress fraction but I know they can be really painful. I hope you get it sorted out soon and get back on the road. Your sourdough bread looks amazing, I'm a big bread lover!
