THAI RICE PUDDING. Not the type you remember from your childhood either. Whenever I have left over rice I jump at the chance to make rice pudding- it is the perfect breakfast or pre-workout fuel combining whole grain rice, with proteins (nuts and egg) and dried fruit. This batch was made with Red Thai Rice, Cocounut milk, raisins and walnuts. I added some Garam Masala spice mix to make it that much more exotic (Indias version of our apple pie spices). YUM.
I shared my NRG balls with my newest group of clients...ELM WOMEN PERU 2010 crew! We had our first official meeting this past Saturday including an introductory hike, training program review and Gear Talk at Valhalla Pure in Courtenay. The trip training is officially underway and in 6 months these 12 ladies will be heading to Peru for an amazing trek to Machu Picchu. So exciting!
Progress is coming with the ankle/achilles issue! Sunday I could only walk to 15 minutes...but by Monday I could ROCK 4minutes to 1minute four times. I ran a total of 4 minutes! And the good news, things have loosened up even more since that ROCK. Today I am going to give it another go with the ROCK and see where I am at. Hopefully I will be back to running by the end of the week! In the mean time...ride on...
WEEKEND IN VIC!
We are heading to Vic this weekend for B-day festivities, family visits, spring greetings and coffee walks through the park. I am going to ride the first Island Cup XC Mountain bike race in the series too. It is at the Hartland dump trails on Sunday... Should be interesting to say the least! This will be my 3rd bike race ever and I am looking forward to getting my arse kicked. FUN to go into the unknown...
