Not being able to run has given me the *spark* again. I was super bummed to miss the Turkey Trot but I've spent over 200 miles this week on the bike trying to stay active. Watching everyone else run has been revealing and torturing but also inspiring. Once I get back to it I'll put some more "love" into my morning run. It's nothing short of beautiful when the entire town I live in is full of runners/cyclists every single morning. Sadly, I've spent more time in my bib shorts and less time in my Knivara 3's. Literally, I think I cleaned the house yesterday wearing ONLY bib shorts.
After a deliciously flavorful week, it's time to get back to normal! This means tons of veggies, wholesome carbs and a balanced amount of protein (lots of homemade pizza). Speaking of back to normal, my knee is definitely not there yet. I'm going to try some natural antioxidant supplements to see if I can prevent further damage and heal a little faster (more to come on that). Anyhow, I'll be ending the week with a breakfast, dinner...Sweet Potato Pancakes!? Also, I think a 5k swim/aqua jog session will be good enough to end on a high note for the weekend. Everyone else got to enjoy a long run in the trails while I ate enjoyed my coffee and scone!
So over the past week, I've unknowingly been eating a lavash bread pizza every day. I'll have it for either breakfast or dinner...truly amazing. Think of any vegetable, pasta sauce or pest OR hummus for a base, slap it on some bread and get cooking. You can throw some protein on there and perfect 4:1 carb ratio. So there you go...Pizza is the perfect diet for a triathlete.
