Nearly 7 miles completed and Saucony held up great! My shoes are a lot damper than they were two hours ago, but hoofin it in the rain will leave you more than a little wet. Still, these aren’t saturated, which is great news. My feet feel great and my Achilles is fine. I didn’t need an extra round of ibuprofen after all. I did get sort of dizzy on the walk, but a shot of trail mix and some water helped. :)
Well, I’ve strapped on my new Saucony sneakers and I’m headed to Central Park to participate in the 28th Annual AIDS Walk NYC. Let’s see how they hold up! I will be walking 10 kilometers (that’s 6.2 miles) up though
Central Park, then West to Riverside Park and back downtown. I sprained my instep slightly the other day, and my Achilles is flaring up, but I took some ibuprofen so I should be fine. Also raining out today (luckily just drizzling so far), but I packed my umbrella and the walk is sure to be colorful and fun nonetheless.
Check out this amazing Peanut Butter Cocoa Cookie recipe I picked up from the folks at Smart Balance at the Fitness Magazine event. These cookies were so awesome I couldn’t wait to grab the recipe and try them out for myself. Luckily, Smart Balance came prepared and I logged zero time on the net hunting for the recipe.
I used the crunchy peanut butter and My results were just as splendid as the cookies at the show. I substituted my beloved goat’s milk for low fat milk, used a tbsp coconut oil and a tbsp unsalted butter instead of the whipped balance butter called for in the recipe and added a scoop of ground flaxseed powder. They were delicious! My portions are a little bit larger because I scooped with a tablespoon (I had 28 servings all together by the time I was done), but you can use a 1/2 tbsp measurer and get the exact serving size of 40 portions. Still healthy, although a few more calories per portion.
As you can see, these won’t last long. Good thing I have a 10k walk coming up tomorrow —I’ve already eaten 6 of these darlings! If you’re a sugar fanatic who’s concerned about over doing it as much as I am, be sure to half the recipe. ;)
Wow, take a look at this huge swag bag the super sweet folks at Fitness Magazine hooked me up with! Notwithstanding the Cherries and Volvic water–I threw those in there after a trip to the Market. The complimentary kicks and tee from Reebok look pretty awesome. Alas, my excitement was short lived –My Mom has already put her claim on the sneakers! I still don’t know what half these things are, but can’t wait to get home and see!
Wow! Saucony’s new Kinvara super light sneakers feel awesome on my tired feet.
