It has been a fantastic week of training, teaching and playing and I am looking forward to a relaxing weekend-as I officially begin my training taper for next weekends MOMAR in Squamish today!
I have had a request for a yummy post-workout recipe and this is one of my fav's that really does the job and tastes good too. This recipe is from 'Thrive' a book written by Brendan Brazier, a professional ultra running athlete who thrives on a completely vegan diet. Enjoy:
Chocolate Recovery Pudding:
1/4 pound medium firm tofu
1/2 tbs hemp oil (or flax oil)
1/2 tbs cocoa powder
sprinkle sea salt
Blend and devour!
This weeks training was a combination of brick workouts, big climbs and fast cadence on the flats/downhills.
Saturday-2.5hour mountain trail run followed by 1 hour climbing ride
Monday-1hour hilly trail run, 30 minute easy bike high cadence, superset weights
Tuesday-1.5hour XC bike ride
Weds-superset weights, 1.25hour steep run followed by 2hour XC bike
Thurs-Spin 45, 1hour trail run with big hill repeats
Friday-Rest...or maybe go for an easy technical practice ride:)
Taper Time! Whooohooo!
Have a great Friday! Pics of the new race jerseys to come next...
