Good morning everyone! Before I get into this round up, check out my post on Saturday for some excellent post workout breakfasts using bananas and my review of Plant Fusion protein powder, my new favorite supplement that helps me recovery quickly and tastes absolutely amazing!
Now, let’s get to Week In Review. Thanks to Meg for hosting!
This week was really full, but satisfying. I worked over 40 hours at my job, ran the farthest I’ve ever run before and am now in the “wait for race and don’t blow it” mode.
CTB was busy this week. The beautiful weather and end of school year vibe gives us great business. That makes me so happy because I would rather it be busy than boring. Saturday was a challenge because my coworker got sick, so we were down a person. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but he was closing, so it kind of was. My coworker and I ended up staying over an hour later than our scheduled shifts, but I expect that, so it’s all good.
My computer is really pooping out lately. I only get about 45 minutes of battery life before it shuts down. I’ve had it a few years so this is to be expected. I’m on the market for a new one and am thinking either a Dell or a Mac. Price is a huge consideration for me, as my life isn’t on the computer so I don’t need all the fancy bells and whistles. I can get by on a nice lower tech model. Any insight is helpful!
I washed all my bedding this past week which has been on my to-do list for quite some time.myes, that sounds gross but I honestly forget about it. Well, it’s done and I’m satisfied. I also shaved my legs this week, which I don’t do that often either. That is also weird but hear me out, my leg hair is blonde, grows super slow and stops growing after about 3mm. No one has ever said anything about it and I don’t really notice it. The only reason I did honestly was because I was wearing a dress and wanted that swishy feeling over my legs. #priorities
Ok, onto my favorite part of my days; running!
This week, I could not have asked for things to go better. Hitting that 24 miler with an average 7:19 pace was such a confidence booster. People always assume that I’ve don’t marathons and all that jazz…but I’m only 24 you guys. I think that’s kind of young to have so much endurance training under your belt. I’ve only been running for 5 years and racing for 2 of them. (I don’t count track in high school) I still had so many doubts as to finishing my first 26.2. Now I can say I don’t have any doubts.
I was able to get in a bottle of tailwind, which I picked up from outside my house (personal aid station) after 16 miles. I’m hoping that I’ll be able to have my own bottles at the race, but haven’t hear back from the elite coordinator yet, so right now I’ll just do what I’ve been doing. I consider myself pretty fat adapted, but for this race, I don’t care what I have to do to finish it well. I’ll eat straight up candy if I have to.
I’ve had a lot of fun making different protein breakfasts this week. I’m not sure what to call them because the texture is like cookie dough, but that just doesn’t seem right. Hmm…ill keep thinking. I’ve had some good ones this week like
Carrot, vanilla chai
Chocolate raspberry with coconut butter
Vanilla, matcha, coconut
Chocolate, salted caramel
The Plant Fusion protein powders are so good! I’m working on a recipes page that takes my basic formula (mashed banana and almond milk depending on the banana size) and adding flavors/nut butters that compliment each other. It really is that simple. No blender, just the cheapest fruit money can buy, a fork and amazing plant based protein powder. Stay tuned!
My goals for this week are to change my blog layout so you can actually find my recipes, about me and racing pages. I also want to reach out to more amazing vegan companies so I can spread the message of vegan athleticism and ethics on my blog and when I race.
That’s all I have for this week guys. Have a wonderful Monday!
Would anyone be interested in a Plant Fusion giveaway?
Anyone interested in a recipe page on how I use protein powder?
Tell me an other way to use it that does not include smoothies. I like using a spoon to eat 🙂
