Gains – gains for days.
I love running but some days you can hit a wall mid-run and just feel cruddy. But you just have to keep pushing.
An interesting part of moving places is finding new places to run. I only have gotten lost on a run a total three times since moving to Birmingham this summer.
Check out a smoothie I have started making after runs that I have struggled with this summer.
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup Blueberries
- 5 frozen strawberries
- 1 frozen Banana (broken into chunks)
- 1 tbsp of Vega Protein Mix or your favorite vegan/gluten-free smoothie powder
- 1/2 cup ice
Honestly, I believe no directions are necessary here. Whip out your handy dandy Ninja Blender and blend until smooth.
Running is hard. Sometimes it does not hurt to indulge yourself on something a little sweet… but sweet does not have to mean unhealthy. Smoothies are a go-to for me, easy to make and a lot cheaper than smoothie stores. Also, have you ever not felt a full feeling after drinking a hearty smoothie? Exactly – they are filling! Treat yourself.
