Day 12 - Friday

5:00am - banana and sunflower butter

6:00am - run workout - 1 mile wu @6.0, 1 mile @ 7.0mph, 1mile @ 7.5, 1 @ 8.0, 2X800m @ 8.5, 1 mile @ 6.0 cool down - 6 miles total - 1 min rest in between each mile

7:15am - protein shake w/ vanilla powder, banana, pineapple chunks, water, 2 tbsp ground flaxseed, shredded coconut, ice. This shake rivals a pina colada! Whats everyone's take on ground flaxseed as a source for omega 3's? 2 Tbs has 2400mg omega 3's and mixes great in protein shakes - thoughts?? Love that I am getting some comments, I will respond in my comments section so check back.

11:00 - post workout snack - blueberries and walnuts

12:30 - Lunch - Sloppy joes on portabella mushroom cap, mixed vegis, clementine orange

5:45pm - dinner - coconut curry chicken with butternut squash and peas - added 1/2 cup brown rice to prepare for long run tomorrow (Yikes!) Feel bad eating rice, but I need to see if it helps energy level on longer runs. Will let you know tomorrow!

7:30pm - canteloupe and blueberries


  1. Steph, Flaxseed is excellent from what I know! That smoothie sounds good. 4:17 on that WOD is excellent. I haven't done it yet but the sprints would kill me. One note on your early morning pre-workout meal. I would "safety net" some protein. I think keeping and gaining lean muscle will help you in many ways and there's no doubt your body will break down muscle for fuel. Getting just a little protein with that may help. Something to look into!

  2. Good thought - more protein!
