The Dirty German is on May 13th this year, and while “official” training doesn’t begin until January 23rd I’m doing a few weeks of pre-training to start building mileage back up. I kinda fizzled out back in September or October – … Continue reading
This week’s recipes are from Happy Herbivore and Forks over Knives, with my own modifications, of course. I’m still up a few pounds and still (sometimes uncomfortably) bloated, but I do feel like I’m on the mend, finally. I was … Continue reading
Here’s what I have on the menu for this week: Because of my latest round of stomach and bowel issues, I am trying to ease into a low FODMAP diet. This is not going to be easy considering that most … Continue reading
And just because I can’t resist the cuteness…
Here’s what I have on the menu for this week:
- Southwest Quinoa Bowls (from Ari’s Menu)
- Chipotle Black Bean burgers (also from Ari’s Menu)
- Baked Sweet Potatoes stuffed with Chickpea Chili (from The Vegan 8)
- Smoky Black Bean Enchilada Wraps (from Happy Herbivore)
I’m not that big a fan of tofu, but those enchilada wraps from HH are just fabulous, not to mention super easy and quick to make!
The Southwest Quinoa bowls look very similar to the One-pan Mexican Quinoa I make all the time, but since I was already planning on another recipe from Ari’s site, I figured I’ll give this one a go too.
And Brandi’s (the Vegan 8) recipes never fail :)
After a failed attempt at this yesterday (I only made it 3.3 miles before having to charge back home. I’ll spare the details…), I managed to complete the 10k for Autism (virtual race) today. I opted for the treadmill so that I’d be closer to the bathroom, if needed ;) But all went well, and I had a pretty good run! I did mostly 2:30/:30 intervals, and was able to really kick it into high gear the last mile and a half. I finished in 1:02:50 for an overall pace of just over 10-minute miles.
WHO wants to run for autism? Virtual 10k race. 1:02:50 NBZ2(3).
I’ll most likely take a rest day tomorrow, and figure out what’s next from here. Stay tuned!
My training for the Dirty German Endurance Fest got derailed by my stupid stomach issues. I ended up at the GI and am currently in the midst of several procedures being done to figure out what’s going on. Needless to … Continue reading
