Speedwork in Disguise and a Banana Green Protein Smoothie.

7 miles this morning before the cold drizzles of rain came through! Legs I have to say are feeling pretty good since yesterday’s hilly 8 miler. Lately I’ve been enjoying the challenge of hill repeats…getting ready for the 50k course in February which will be mostly rolling hills. Yes, those bad boys are speedwork in disguise…for sure.

I have yet another post workout green power booster for you today! One of the things I love the most about including spinach in my smoothies is that you really don’t even taste it. Plus, spinach is such a great superfood for runners. Who knew?

Good stuff…I think even former housewife Brandi is convinced.

Here’s what you need for this green concoction.

-2 cups of fresh organic spinach
-1 banana, chopped (freeze if you want your smoothie to be nice and ice cold!)
-1 scoop of protein powder (I always use this vegan protein one)
-1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Blend and serve! Preferably after jogging…no, I mean running.

  1. I love spinach… I normally buy it frozen so I always have it ready to cook with. It’s nice roasted with garlic. I’ll give that smoothie a try as it sounds lush.

    Good work with the run, it sounds tough after a hilly 8 miler..

  2. That looks delicious. I will have to try it out! I’ve been on an orange smoothie kick. Probably because that’s the only fruit that’s really in season now!
