NOTHING, absolutely nothing, was keeping me from my run tonight. The remnants of Tropical Storm Fay are still pounding Orlando, so I had to get creative:

It worked! My iPod stayed nice and dry through 6.0 miles of rain/sprinkles. Seriously–my run was glorious. After two days of not running, I was start to itch mentally and physically. You know you’re addicted to running when you go out in 20 mph gusts and pelting rain. It was actually kind of fun (although people in cars were pointing at me like I was crazy). Plus, I didn’t feel like I was overheating… mostly because I was SOAKING WET!
Here are my statistics:

Dinner – Savory Salmon Crepes

Once I got back from my run, I was craving something warm and filling. Savory Salmon Crepes (stuffed with red and green peppers and carrots) seemed like the perfect solution!

Ingredients (for two servings):

For Filling:

  1. 3 oz. salmon
  2. 1 tablespoon EVOO
  3. Chopped green peppers
  4. Chopped red peppers
  5. Shredded carrots
  6. S&P to taste
  7. Dijon mustard

For Crepe:

  1. 1/4 cup WW flour
  2. 1/4 cup white flour
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/2 tablespoon butter, melted
  5. 1/2 cup skim milk
  6. S&P to taste


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease baking dish and place salmon (coated with EVOO) in dish. Layer green peppers, red peppers, and carrots on top. Place in oven and cook for 30 minutes.
  3. Mix all ingredients for crepes with whisk.
  4. Heat a wok or pan with a circular bottom to Medium High. Spray with cooking spray.
  5. Add 1/2 of crepe mix to pan, twisting around to cover the entire bottom with crepe. For thinner crepes, use less of the mix.
  6. Cook crepe for 2-3 minutes or until center is firm.
  7. Flip crepe and cook other side for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Repeat process for crepe #2, if you are making dinner for two. Keep first crepe warm.
  9. Mix salmon and veggies together, breaking up the fillet into flakes. Add the Dijon mustard.
  10. Roll up salmon mix in crepe and serve.
  11. Enjoy!

Along with my Savory Salmon Crepes, I enjoyed 1/2 cup of steamed green beans… delicious. I love this meal! I make the crepes kind of thick, so you may want to reduce the crepe recipe if you like thinner crepes.

Post-Run Snack

While my crepes cooked, I enjoyed 1/3 serving of Muscle Milk Light with 1 cup skim milk. Does anyone else like to eat the chunks of unmixed protein powder? Kind of gross, I know.

Pre-Run Snacks/Afternoon Snacks

I felt terribly munchy all afternoon. I had…

Yogurt, blueberries, and Grape Nuts with a little hot green tea….

A slice of WW bread (end of the loaf! ahh!) with some organic PB, a peach, and a few strawberries…

And last, but not least, some grapes and apricots!

Tonight I’m going to do a little research on the glycemic index and why it is important for runners/other active people. I will share the information tomorrow! I made an error in my lunchtime post that a reader was kind enough to point out… I should have stated that instant oatmeal have a HIGHER glycemic index, which is bad. 🙂 You learn something new everyday!
