High Mileage and Cookies 10/04/08 – 10/08/08

This week marks the height of my marathon training – less than 30 days to go! I’m aiming to run 60 miles this week (highest mileage ever), so hopefully that works out. I’m hungry and tired most of the time. On the bright side, that means nap time and double desserts!
Maple syrup-peanut butter and banana on whole wheat. What a yum dinner!

Mmm, frosted pumpkin spice cookies. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour to bump up the fiber content, canned pumpkin added plenty of vitamin A, and the organic eggs/skim milk contributed some protein. These cookies were soooo good – very moist.

This is the recipe that I used: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Iced-Pumpkin-Cookies/Detail.aspx
