It’s been a whole week since I started training for my first 10k, taking place April 21. So far it has been going really well. Had two early workouts at before work. The only thing I am having trouble with is figuring out what to eat at work after my workouts. Protein bars are just not cutting it for me.
They are super high in sugar, so I always end up crashing later and let’s not forget, super processed as well. Got any ideas?
I meal prepped a super easy vegan veggie curry, going to have the recipe for you all up soon. It’s an adaption from Karin Adoni Ben-David’s recipe. I also made lentil salad with avocado dressing, which I will also have for you all. I love salads, that are protein packed, after a workout. It is so refreshing and keeps me light when I go to bed.
My favorite show to watch right now is Stranger Things, I am loving this show. It’s so interesting, funny, and a great way to distract myself during cross training. Got any favorite shows to watch during cross training days?
This week I also caught up with a friend. We went to Cinnamon Snail. I had the beast mode burger, incredible! It’s a veggie patty with mac and cheese, bbq sauce, and it was just heavenly. Their tater tots were kind of dry, but boy oh boy what the doughnut incredible. Peanut butter and chocolate should be a sin, it is just that good.
Now off to celebrate my mother’s birthday and then off to Florida, will be training from the hotel room gym for the next three days.
