homemade power bites are turning into my option to update taking energy gels. these Vanilla Almond Latte ones are even better due to the fact they have caffeine in them thanks to the coffee. along with the espresso I added a scoop of critical Protein’s new Vanilla & Coconut Water Collagen Peptides.

Time for a new energy bite you guys! I haven’t shared a brand new recipe for one because the peach pie model I revamped the summer season, so these Lemon Coconut Cashew electricity Bites have been because of happen.

nowadays I concept I’d open up a bit bit approximately my strolling. quite tons the whole month of December my strolling felt like an epic failure. My pace was slower than it’s ever been, I had no power and my motivation to get out within the bloodless each morning wasn’t going on.

among the pressure of the vacations and all of the sugar and rubbish i was giving myself a unfastened skip to devour, it was a wonder I made it through the month without skipping a run or getting harm. in the end within the closing couple weeks I broke down and realized I needed to alternate a few things about the way I run and devour if I’m ever going to get my pace returned and have more strength as well.

I wanted a plan that would get my mileage beneath manipulate (I’d been running 80-85 miles every week) and placed more excellent speed exercises into my habitual. pleasant over quantity is my motto for the new year, now it’s just a count of sticking to it.
