Rest, Recovery, Food.

Don’t those three go so well together? I took a nap. I ran a little. And I ate!

RUN: A much needed RECOVERY RUN after the progressive tempo yesterday. Legs are still feeling sore but what can you do? 7.01 Miles (7:35/mi pace on hilly terrain, 7:30/mi pace on flat terrain)

Conditions: Very snowy and slick, but warm. I’d say it was the upper 30’s.

EAT:

Snack: My attempt at an Oatmeal “Cookie”…which fell apart when flipped. PS: Anyone have a good recipe for something like this? Where you make it in a skillet but don’t blend the oats. I’m not even going to SHARE what I did. It was a disaster (a good-tasting disaster at least)

My actual breakfast: Pumpkin Oatmeal (Two eggs on the side, already eaten.)

Mid-morning snackage was my homemade Chai Tea Latte (prev. post), and a piece of Flax Toast with Peanut Butter and cinnamon.

Had lunch, which was an open-faced sammy with all-natural ham and american cheese on it. A handful of dry kashi heart to heart… obsession?, Some strawberries, and a large Cameo Apple!

After the run, I stretched out and cooled off with this frothy guy:

I will always stand by this recovery shake when I don’t NEED to use Endurox, aka, almost every run. My Endurox is still sitting in the cabinet have un-drank and I really never have found myself truly needing to “recover” with it.

Chocolate Berry Recovery Smoothie

1/2 C. frozen berries (or more)

1-2 Tbsp Honey (depending on sweetness of the berries)

1 Tbsp Cocoa Powder

1 C. Skim Milk (Soy or 2% makes it creamier, so whatever I have on hand)

1/2 Scoop Protein Powder (Whey, Soy, Whatever)

4 Ice Cubes

I throw this all in my magic bullet-type blender and it comes out great every time. For more carbs, I’ll throw in random fruit juices or a frozen banana when I feel up to it. I also like substituting chocolate milk instead of skim milk when I need something extra creamy.

Well, tomorrow starts the new semester schedule so we’ll see how it goes! And here’s a little quote to give us a strong kick into the next semester.

So long as there is breath in me, that long I will persist. For now I know one of the greatest principles on success; if I persist long enough I will win.

Sorry, friends.

I have not been keeping up with the meticulous blogging! School just started again today and so begins the life of school, run, eat, sleep.

RUN: 60 Minute Progressive Tempo Run.

Start @ 8:00/mi pace.

End @ 6:00/mi pace. (Built over 1 HR)

Distance: 9 Miles?

Now that school started I’m back into the normal eating routine as well.

B: Oatmeal with Flaxseed and plenty of Cinnamon. Two Eggs. Strawberries.

S: 1 Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Bar. Yum!

L: Is always a good ol’ Ham sandwich, this time on Sprouted Wheat. Some baby carrots. A Cameo Apple.

Before my RUN, I had a delicious GIANT Potbelly’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie. Good fuel, I’m tellin’ you guys. (Have you guys seen these things? Probably the size of my hand…soft and moist too!)

Went on the hour+ progressive tempo with the iPod.

Came back and had a Smoothie! (Frozen berries, Whey protein, Cinnamon, Skim Milk, Ice). Then I had some Hot Chocolate made with Milk right afterwards…because I realized I was actually kind of cold from the run.

Haha 🙂 Funny how that works, huh?

SORRY guys if I do not post as often. My semester schedule is overly weighted and school might consume my life. Thanks for commenting though, guys! I love to hear from you!
