Future Husband is taking a VERY important exam today at acupuncture school. If he passes, he’ll get to personally treat patients at clinical, instead of just assisting other doctors. It’s a difficult test…. so GOOD LUCK, Future Husband!
I woke up a little early so I could make him a hearty breakfast. We both need brain fuel for today!
I made pancakes with Hodgson’s Mills InstaBake Mix (love it), and I also had a banana.
I tried something new today — since coffee tastes delish in oatmeal, I figured it would work in pancakes, too! First, I separated the mix, which I made a little thicker than usual, into two small bowls. I dumped about 2 tablespoons of brewed hazelnut coffee into one portion, and I cut the remaining batter with some extra milk.
Guess which one was the coffee-infused pancake! The coffee flavor wasn’t overpowering, but it did add a nice layer of complexity to the pancake.
From above, with coffee + maple syrup for dipping:
Continuing on the topic of last night’s video post about low-impact water running, here are some interesting facts about the impact of running on land:
- A force of up to three times body weight can be exerted on the human foot while running!
- The force exerted on the ground by a runner’s foot is greatest in midstance, when a considerable amount of pressure is placed on the knee and ankle.
- One rotation of running is comprised of stance (push off), float (time in the air), swing (bringing the push off leg around), and a second float. Approximately 30% of the rotation is spent in float mode.
- You don’t float when walking. :) Yet another reason to RUN!
On a side note, my knees do not hurt AT ALL from water running! My thighs feel like I got a good workout in, and my arms are heavy, like I lifted weights!
Things I Hope Don’t Happen At My Wedding
Future Husband’s best man sent me this YouTube link:
That POOR BRIDE! I couldn’t help but laugh.
Have a wonderful day! See you for lunch!
