It’s a Cherry Berry Bomb “Green” Smoothie kind of day! I’ve got an annoying head cold, and it is day 3 of “rest” ... no cycling and no running. Needless to say, I’m a little cranky. So, I’m pulling out the big guns this morning and smacking this cold in the face with lots of immune boosting fruits and veggies. Fingers crossed it helps!! 🤞🏻🌱😷🌱🤞🏻
i'm taking a few days break from bowls to explore the amazing food hong kong has to offer. i started my food tour @grassrootspantry to eat these beautiful lemon, chia & pistachio pancakes. you can find the restaurant on @happycow
a long afternoon on a rooftop terrace with a book, porridge and fresh mint tea 📚 ⠀
Starting off the week with some speedwork. Did 2 mi WU, 4 x 800 @ 5k pace (goal 7:30), 1.5 mi CD for a total of 6 miles. Actual splits (paces) were 7:14, 7:18, 7:06, 7:28. I was thinking this felt too hard, but looking at the splits I can see that I was going too fast. I'm racing a 5k this weekend to get a gauge of how I should pace my workouts for MARATHON TRAINING starting in January! 😃😃🤞🏽
Lili and I dragged ourselves out of bed to get in some flat, easy miles before heading to Western MA to see family. I forgot how hard it is to run before coffee and food when you're not used to it, plus it was sub-20 degrees again. Oh well.. we still managed 7 miles at 7:47 min/mi. A lot faster than the last time Lili ran that far on the road!
Brazos Bend 100. I can’t help but laugh at how angry I am walking into the corral to finish my one loop. I’m pretty sure I was just repeating to myself “don’t cry in front of all these people.” Spoiler Alert: I cried in front of all those people. 😆 I’m a cry baby, it’s what I do. 🤷🏻♀️ Felt fine running on Monday but took all week off for mental health and ensure I wouldn’t over do it. I might not even run this weekend! Company Christmas Party is tonight and we waited until the last minute to prepare for it AND we’ll definitely be up past my bedtime. We’ll see what happens. Y’all know I will report back if I do run 😜
Spicy 🌶 soup and a hot shot. I fell in love with coconut, lemongrass and fresh ginger travelling around South East Asia. So when I saw all 3 in this soup I was sold 😍This hot shot is cold pressed orange 🍊 juice turmeric and cayenne. It also has ginger, apple 🍎 & lemon. I adore @pretamangeruk they’ve really upped their game and in my opinion are market leaders with vegan 🌱 options. What used to be a difficult lifestyle socially and on the go is getting easier and easier all the time. There has been so much progression and response to people choosing an alternative lifestyle that still want all of their original favourites as well as being able to grab healthy food on the go that doesn’t compromise (my) high standards. #veganlife#veganfood#veganrunner#veganfitness#healthyfood#foodgoals#spicyfood#eattherainbow#fruitandveg#plantpower
