I suck at running this week and a Vegan Curry recipe

This week was a big win on the clean eating and training. I got in all my runs, as planned and met all my nutrition goals.

Well not quite…….

Even though I got all my runs in, Friday’s 6.5KM and Saturday’s 8KM run were absolutely the worst! I had ZERO energy, “heavy legs”, and the SLOWEST pace I have ran in a long long time!

Ok ok…..Getting on with it!

We got back from Jamaica on Sunday morning at 2am……..(We were having so much fun I barley took any pictures…..I just didn’t think about it….Now I am a bit sad!)

I think Shane was particularly happy to get back to Jamaica for a visit since his Mom grew up there (Dunns River Falls) he seems to have a strong connection with all things Jamaican!

We arrived in Montego Bay Tuesday around lunch time, and headed to the resort…….It was raining a bit on the way there….But no worries it cleared up by mid afternoon and the sun shone the rest of our vacation!

Gorgeous!

CHOCO-PB Smoothie

Here is a super delish Smoothie….Great for Pre-Run!

Choco-PB Soothie

  • 1 scoop vanilla protein (your choice, I use plant based but whey is fine if you have it)
  • 1 Tablespoon Natural Peanut Butter
  • 1 small Banana
  • 1 teaspoon Chia Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1 Cup Unsweetened Cashew Milk (or any non-dairy milk)
  • Ice

Blend until smooth

Cacao Nibs are great for pre workout…….

“Cacao Nibs contain a constituent known as “theobromine,” an alkaloid structurally similar to that of caffeine, that occurs in greater quantities in cacao and that acts as a stimulant and promotes strength, endurance, and enhanced mood.”
