On Sunday after my 16 miler I had a really intense craving for Coconut Pancakes. These were light, fluffy coconut pancakes from heaven.
In other news, I'm really good at drawing, especially people. If you need your portrait done, I got you. I promise my hand won't spazz on the left leg.
Soccer used to be my jam. 46 juggles.
Who needs a foam roller when you have this?
I have a confession. In the first few steps of my run on Sunday I could feel my ankle hurting. It didn't hurt to the point where I couldn't keep going, so I did. I wanted to run so badly I couldn't help myself, and 16.41 miles later it was a bit tender. Dear, Anterior talofibular ligament, please, feel better. Love, Amanda.
I run almost completely on my toes which puts a lot of pressure on this ligament. It's a Grade 1 sprain meaning I should be as good as new in a few days. A few days without running is actually really hard for me, but I am going to try to put together a strength exercise to build up all my muscles around my ankles and knees. I used to want to be skinny, now I just want to be strong.
Back to these pancakes because these make me really happy. I halved the recipe and it made about 3 medium/large pancakes. Enjoy!
