Just went on an AMAZING 10.16-mile run with a bunch of new gear, including my new Zensah calf compressors and my new heart rate monitor!  According to it, I averaged 154 bpm, and ran the distance in 1hr26min06sec (8:34 pace!!! The new beats and fear of the so-called “esplanade attacker” probably helped, too).  Hope to keep this up seeing as I just signed up for my first half-marathon in exactly one month!
Now, nothing better than a recovery pudding inspired by Brendan Brazier :)
The thing I love about them is that you can definitely vary the ingredients to get pretty different results, but by applying his principles, you still get the benefits of a delicious recovery snack packed with all the nutrients your tired muscles are craving/needing! Today’s version (2 servings’ worth):
- 2 bananas- 1 cup blueberries (used frozen ones in this)- 1/4 cup of soaked pumpkin seedsJust kinda eyeballed the following ingredients (flexible)- 2 big scoops of flaxseed powder - 2 big scoops of Trader Joe’s chocolate-flavored hemp protein poweder- 1 scoop of Trader Joe’s Very Green powder- 1 scoop of raw cashews
Into the food processor they go, and voila!  Fast-track to recovery and being back at it in no time (I hope) :)
