Green Smoothie Bowl

Green Smoothie Bowl

I’m right in the peak of training for the London Marathon. In fact, I don’t have too many more big runs before the BIG run itself. Eek! I’ve been pushing myself harder this year, I know I can reach the distance but I want to improve my time and get round in 4 hours and 30 minutes, and that means knocking off at least 30 seconds every mile if not more. It doesn’t sound a lot and it is doable, but have I got it in me to do it over 26.2 miles? I hope so.

I have been working on my post running nutrition, which I don’t think I’ve taken too seriously before and I’m feeling the effects. One thing I struggle with after a long run is fatigue. Not only do I feel physically exhausted but I am emotionally exhausted too. It is best to give me a wide birth because I probably will snap your head off! So, this protein packed seasonal smoothie bowl is the perfect post run or exercise smoothie to chow down on that will help your muscles to recover and also help with the crash of fatigue.
