The gravel was good today! I just wish I didn’t have to bundle up and wear skiing gloves on the bike. The homemade energy bars from yesterday were a winner. I might be on to something here. Oh yeah, my first dog attack of the year happened today. Always a good test of the bike handling skills.
Pre-run/ride breakfast included a couple of these vegan garden muffins. This was the Baker’s first attempt at this recipe and they are a definite keeper! Oats, grated carrot, grated zucchini, maple syrup,coconut, raisins, and nuts make up these dense little energy bombs! I have already put in my order for a batch for my pre-race breakfast on May 14th.
The Baker has a 20 mile training on Sunday in preparation for her marathon in May. We have been experimenting with pre-race dinner ideas, and decided on loaded baked potatoes for Saturday night. They were topped off with vegan chorizo, Teese cheese, Tofutti sour cream, and textured vegetable protein. Damn right!
