Happy Saturday, everyone? Is it spring yet? I’m stalking the weather as I write this (Friday) in hopes that I can do my long run outside tomorrow. I think my town has run out of funds for plowing and salt, though, because everything is a snowy, slushy, icy mess.
Is anyone racing this weekend? Tell me about it in the comments!
Here are some of my favorite running reads and recipes I want to make from this week!
Tina Muir, “Fuel Your Recovery: Fuel and Sleep”
Tina is an elite runner, and she provides great insight on fueling and sleep for runners, especially during the peak of training!
Run to the Finish, “How Many Calories Do Runners Really Need?”
Amanda reminds us of everything we need to consider when it comes to calories, including efficiency and which formulas are accurate.
Mommy Run Fast, “7 Ways to Exercise When You Don’t Really Feel Like It”
Feeling sluggish due to winter? Try these tips to sneak exercise into your day!
Sarah Canney, Zelle, “Destructive Habit, Saving Grace: Running and Eating Disorders”
A great post about how running helped one woman overcome her eating disorder.
Lauren Fleshman, The Fast Life (Runner’s World), “Finding Fun Can Reshape Your Running Outlook”
The elite runner talks about how taking a break helped her renew her running.
How Sweet It Is, “Charred Cauliflower Carbonara”
Charred cauliflower is the best. Seriously, if you haven’t tried it, make this pasta and then you’ll never go back.
Joy the Baker, “Extra Nutty Dark Chocolate Fudge Brownies”
I know what I’m making for my next post-race indulgence.
Minimalist Baker, “Crispy Garlic Brussel Sprouts with Sriracha Aioli”
This would make an amazing snack or as a side with dinner. The aioli is made with hummus!
Pinch of Yum, “Roasted Veggie Pitas with Avocado Dip”
Avocado + crispy chickpeas = food heaven. Perfect for meatless Mondays or Lenten Fridays!
Bev Cooks, “Turkey Bolognese with Rigatoni”
Only made better by adding tons of roasted vegetables (see the charred cauliflower above).
