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!
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
- Curry powder
- Chili flakes
- 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!
- Chopped cilantro
- Green onions
- Slivered almonds
Yeah that will just about do it for now!
