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!


Seriously I contemplated why I even bother……….


Pre 6.5km run I expected a good run…..after all it is a short run…….


Post run……..This is bullshit

When I thought about it all I could figure is that the no carbs for 5 days had caught up with me…….



I don’t usually try to “Diet” and train hard at the same time….this is why…….

So now I have to find a balance between loosing weight and increasing my miles……..

Friday night I added some Sweet Potato to my Supper, and I will be having more carbs everyday. There is no point of this training if I can’t even complete my runs…….I was hoping Saturday would be better for my 8km run….


I set out with a good attitude



No fucking Dice…….Just as bad as the day before.

I guess I need to keep tweeking this meal plan to find a balance…….I only have 25 days until the NPOMR!


Today is just a 5km recovery run…….Hoping for more energy!


ok ok……

I was in the mood for a delicious dinner……..and a Vegan Quinoa Curry sounded perfect!



  • Chop 2 onions
  • 8 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 inch piece ginger, minced

Sweat down until soft


Add spices to taste

  • Cayenne
  • Cinnamon
  • Curry powder
  • Chili flakes
  • Cumin


  • 1 Cup No salt added Vegetable stock (more as needed)
  • 1 small can of tomato paste


Let it cook down for a while…..it will thicken up nicely


While its cooking cook up your Quinoa …I used a Quinoa and Bulgur mix


Once the Curry is all thick and delicious looking add

  • 1 can bamboo shoots
  • Wilt down about 8-12 oz baby spinach


Once ready to serve stir in

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk (light)
  • 1/4 cup 0% Greek yogurt


Mine was pretty spicy but delicious!


Possible toppings

  • Raisins
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Green onions
