Run, Recover, Refresh!

Oh Thursdays, we can just smell the weekend can't we? Well, I have to work this weekend but at least its fun! We have a Re-Grande opening at CATZ (sports performance center) this weekend and we (Healthy Bites) will be setting up a sampling booth to all who come. I am the Nutrition Manager at CATZ, so I will be meeting a lot of our new clients as well. Its gonna be very busy but very cool! Anyways, today but the hubs Coach had me do a killer tempo workout. And i mean KILLER! I was a dripping sweat afterwards. You can actually modify this workout for those who want a little HIIT work.

Here's the original Temp Run Set up.
10-15 minute warm up
4 x 8 minutes at race pace with 2 minute walk/jog
try to increase speed at each set)
10 minute cool down

About an hour total and no more...phew!

MODIFIED for HIIT
5 minute easy warm up
90 sec hard (race pace or faster) followed by 90 sec walk jog
repeat 5 times
5 minute cool down

25 minutes total

Let me know if you try it!

Anyway, I was super thirsty and needing some good recovery food so I made some.......

Cherry Vanilla Protein ice cream.
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • ice and a little water
  • 2 tbsp dried coconut milk
  • 1 serving BIOCHEM Berrys N' Whey
  • 1 cup frozen cherries
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp xanathum gum (extra to make it into thick ice cream)
  • 1/8 tsp guar gum
  • Topped it with a little cocoa and crumbled PB&J Lara Bar.
AWESOME!! SO refreshing!


And.....some more B.A.S from this week. Also so refreshing!


Happy Almost Friday. Hope you did your taxes.....we filed for extension again, eek!

I can't wait to try making some protein ice cream, I need to get my hands on some guar and xanthan gums ASAP! Yours looks really good and of course I'm all for anything topped with a PB&J lara bar!

Have fun with the TRX, I sooo want to try that.
