Happy National Running Day!
Thank goodness it was sunny today. I’ve never been one of those run-in-the-rain people. Cold, heavy, and clingly clothes just aren’t really my thing, you know?
Anyway, I got in a nice and short 23 minute run around my neighborhood and then did some free weights and abs. I was still really sore from by barsculpt class yesterday, though. Hopefully my legs have loosened up by tomorrow!
After my workout I relaxed with this smoothie/protein shake. I’ve been drinking a mix of these ingredients after almost every workout for the past month or so. Here’s my latest combination:
In a blender, combine:
1/2 banana, frozen
1 T ground flax seed
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 serving silken tofu (between 1/2 and 3/4 cup…I use “lite”)
3/4 cup cold water
1 T peanut butter
Blend until all ingredients are thoroughly incorporated. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
