And the verdict is...

No marathon tomorrow. I am no longer feverish, but my system is still not quite processing properly. I have to defer to Superman's better judgment, because I have none of my own in situations like this.

I still intend to run 11 tomorrow, up to the top of the hill and back. I have a half marathon in 2 weeks and the last long run I did was 10 miles (last weekend).

I am sad, because I had mentally geared for this run. I am happy, because I now have the chance to become at least a little more prepared, physically.

A pretty picture, just because.

Recipe - finally

8 scoops vanilla protein powder [I use the scoop provided in the powder, I'm guessing it's about 1 1/3 cups]

1 1/4 cup flax seed meal or oatmeal

-1/2 cup natural peanut butter

-1/3 cup water

1/4 - splenda or natural sweetener (optional)

-4T coca powder (optional)

- I've made these with 2T honey in place of some of the water before too. ;)

mix all ingredients in a large bowl and stir. At first it may not seem like it is enough water, but keep stirring and it will eventually become a sticky blob of dough. Add 1 tbsp of water at a time if needed.

-divide mixture into 8 equal portions and place in separate pieces of plastic wrap placing them into bars. It's easier to shape them by lying plastic wrap on one side of a small dish pressing the dough into the natural shape of the dish.

-store the bars in fridge or freezer. Once solid, enjoy. :)
