Can I have a Quesadilla?
Oh my dear, the last 20 hours have been crazy! Well, other than the 8 hours that I spent sleeping!
I hope you all enjoyed your Friday night and are currently enjoying a nice Saturday. Last night at the restaurant was surprisingly not too busy! It got busy for about two hours but it wasn’t that bad at all. I got home at about midnight and promptly had a piece of toast with mixed berry jam and a peach!
This morning I was looking so forward to my run. I mapped out a 10.4 mile run on mapmyrun.com. I was pumped!
About two hours before running I snacked on this Trek Bar- Peanut & Oat flavour:
I also had a smoothie. Here are the goods that went in it.
In the mix:
- 1 cup Alpro soy milk
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed summer berries
- 1 small banana
- heaping handful of spinach
- 1 tbsp ground flax
Like I said, I was pumped for a good run. But, at about mile 4.5 I got a massive cramp in my side. Never ever have I felt pain like this! I was doubling over in pain and thought maybe I was giving birth. “Are these contractions I am having?” I thought. Then I remembered I am not 9 months pregnant, but wow- if that’s what giving birth is like……
Anyway, I tried to keep going but couldn’t make it. I tried to stretch, pray, I even tried to will it away. But no such luck, so I started walking home. Luckily I wasn’t too far and was just about at my loop point to carry on the final 4 miles. I was in tears because I felt my body let me down. If that ever happened on race day I’m not sure what I would do.
I ended up going 6.2 miles altogether (but walked the last .75 of a mile), and burned 553 calories.
After being home and thinking about it (with my water & a peach), I decided you know what? What the heck, it was a GREAT run. 6.2 miles is a great distance. Tomorrow, i’ll try again for 10
After showering and tidying up I made myself a lunch.
I had the last wrap to use up so I decided a quesadilla was on the menu.
For the base I used a bit of tomato paste and green pesto, and covered half with fresh spinach.
Then I sliced some tomato, fresh mushroom and avocado for some toppings.
I also grilled up 1 meatfree sausage to put in it. Here is it just before folding and going into the oven.
I put it under the grill in the oven for literally 2-3 minutes before flipping to the other side for a little more grilling action. Make sure you watch it because this baby can burn quick!
I had an apple with some cinnamon on the side.
It was SO good!!
Well, I’ve got to go! My future Mother-in-Law will be here soon to drop off my niece! I get to babysit for a few hours! Yippie!
