Momentum Monday: RUMBLE Giveaway
Hey there, friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I got in a solid long run and it was hands down the best long run of 2015. Everything felt great and 24 km sailed by. I ate a bowl of Love Grown cereal before and that was new for me. I am going to try it again for a future run.
Other than that, I went on a winter hike and played some games with friends. All in all, a really fun social weekend to cap off another solid training week.
Last Week’s Training:
Tuesday: 13 KM treadmill run – 800 repeats.
Wednesday: Easy 9 KM treadmill run
Thursday: 12 KM treadmill run with 8 KM tempo
Friday: 30 minutes rowing machine and stair master, 30 minutes weights
Saturday: 24 KM outdoor long run
It was a good week of training and I felt healthy and strong throughout. I missed my yoga session due to a work event, but I am hoping to get in a good stretch session this week.
One thing that I do as soon as possible after a long run is to get 25 G of protein into my system as soon as possible. The primary goal post-workout is to provide your body with an immediate fuel source to prevent it from breaking down muscle tissue for energy. For this reason, I always make sure to have some fast digestible carbs in my post workout meal as well.
If I am at home within an hour of a hard workout, I will make a smoothie but at races or when I am on the road which is more often than not, I reach for a more portable fuel source.
I have spoken on my love for Rumble before as a great midnight snack for endurance athletes who are struck with training hunger but I wanted to give you a chance to try it for yourself.
I keep a couple bottles in the fridge and have them to refuel after workouts, as a delicious dessert and occasionally as a milk replacement in cereal because life is short. I also like the Dutch Cocoa warm as a hot chocolate and the Vanilla Maple with coffee as a latte.
It has squeaky clean ingredients and it tastes like a milkshake. I have said this to a few dubious friends who are not athletes and I have made them try it and without fail, they respond with “This is good. Like…GOOD!”
