    Did mile repeats yesterday...only did three this time because my focus is on a 5K.  Anyway, the last two miles were 5:45 and 5:44.  I haven't been that far under 6:00 since high school.

            My small victory for today is that I actually got out there in the woods and ran/walked/sprinted,and just plain had fun.  Yesterday would have been a running day, but DH wanted me to work on a trail in the woods with him, So I did that, and enjoyed it, but it threw off my schedule.   I was happy to get out there today, even though my legs are a little sore from the hill work yesterday. 

           Sometimes just getting out there is the biggest victory.

          It rained here all day and I decided to get my seasonal flu shot on the way home. I almost talked myself out of running tonight since it was getting late by the time I got home. Fortunately the rain let up so I went out and ran an easy 6 which put me over 1000 miles for 2009. Actually ended up at 1001 since I made a wrong turn in the park and ran an extra mile.

            I ran a mile this evening.

             

            It was an easy mile.  But it was a great mile.

              I got up and ran 4 miles before work this morning.  I'm not a morning person, but I've managed to do this twice a week for a few months now.  It is just too busy in the evenings now to fit it a run at night.

                Nice job!  I find that working out in the wee hours of the AM is the only way I fit my workouts in as well.

                              Pumpkin Pancakes

                              2 eggs
                              1 1/4 cups buttermilk
                              4 tablespoons butter, melted
                              3 tablespoons pureed pumpkin(canned or fresh) pumpkin
                              1/4 cup granulated sugar
                              1/4 teaspoon salt
                              1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
                              1/2 teaspoon baking powder
                              1/2 teaspoon baking soda
                              1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
                              1/4 teaspoon allspice

                              Preheat a skillet over medium heat. Coat pan with oil cooking spray.

                              Combine eggs, buttermilk, butter, pumpkin, sugar, and salt in a large bowl.
                              Use an electric mixer to blend ingredients.

                              Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet
                              ingredients and blend with mixer until smooth.

                              Pour the batter in 1/4 cup portions into the hot pan. Should form 5-inch
                              circles.

                              When the batter stops bubbling and edges begin to harden, flip the
                              pancakes. They should be dark brown. This will take from 1 to 2 minutes.

                              Flip the pancakes and cook other side for the same amount of time, until
                              dark brown.

                              Serves 3 to 4.
