The plan was to only take a day off from training but thanks to rainy day, I was not able to keep that promise. The two days off from running were needed because I ran a longer distance today. I was not prepared for the leg cramps that came with today’s run though. I had to pause a few times to stretch and get myself together.
The plan was to get in at least 5 miles today but I had to stop at 4.25 miles after noticing that my family was tired of waiting on me. Yes, I took the family with me so they kids can enjoy the beautiful weather before it gets cold again.
I was so proud of my efforts that I decided to keep the momentum going and eat a yummy/healthy dinner. So I came home and made kale, bulgur and salmon for dinner which I then paired with my post run smoothie.
Below is the recipe for my post run smoothie
This is how I store my smoothie ingredients for each week. I am a planner when it comes to eating right or else I can’t keep up with my game plan of eating right and getting healthy.
This is the final product and it came out great…I should point out that I added 1 cup of coconut milk and 1/2 cup of water to my smoothie. I didn’t put exact measurements this time because I didn’t measure out my ingredients. I figured it would be better to just go with the flow and not be too rigid with this smoothie.
Well I better get going, “Scandal” is on and I am way too distracted by how great tonight’s episode’s is. I was somehow able to bake a loaf of banana bread for breakfast…it is a surprise for my munchkins who are fast asleep right now.
Thank you for stopping by 🙂
