Today was my attempt to run the 10K for Grandmas Birthday. I made it to a little over 3 miles and I pulled something in my leg. I hobbled on for another mile, but I only made it to 4.45...... Grandmas favorite color is pink. So after my shower I grabbed my pink recovery socks, and it FEELS SO GOOD!!!
I feel like Im so slow, and always behind!! I wanna run with the pack!!! I feel like that person way in the back, always playing catchup!!
Even tho I didnt make it to the whole 6.2 miles, I still need to provide some recovery to my body. I used smoothies that I make at home.
|Gather all the ingredients|
In the past I used unsweetend Soy milk. Ive recently moved to unsweetened Almond Chocolate Milk. Its has a stronger chocolate taste. I use Whey powder, Low Carb (or high protein) Yogurt, Frozen berries, bananas (I usually freeze them) A tablespoon of Peanut Butter, ice cubes and a blender.
Frozen strawberries and blueberries from Walmarts frozen section.
And I LOVE peanut butter!! I keep thinking Ill try the PB2, but Im afraid I wont like it, and wasted the money.
The Yogurt picutred is from Kroger. I dont have it available locally, so my friend picks it up when she goes for her cancer checkups (over an hour away)
I make a weeks worth at a time. I use the smaller ones for shorter workouts and the bigger ones for longer runs, or more intense workouts. When I go to the gym, I grab one out of the freezer, and when Im finished its still creamy and a bit icey. YUM!!!!!!!!!
