Recovery week stats and granola recipe

This is Kate's great granola recipe that was gone from my house extremely quickly!


High Protein Granola
adapted from Kate at A Healthy Passion
Ingredients:
4 tbsp brown rice syrup
2 tbsp sunflower seed butter
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted
1 3/4 c oats
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 scoop vanilla hemp protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon
Directions: Combine the brown rice syrup, oil, sunflower seed butter and vanilla in a large bowl until well mixed, fold in the oats and add the rest of the ingredients stirring to coat. Once mixture is well combined pour onto a lined baking sheet and bake 20-25 minutes at 325 degrees stirring once. Let cool and enjoy!


I didn't need all that much recovery after the marathon and my week rounded out pretty well. Here's what it looked like:

Monday - off
Tuesday - easy short swim, bike 4.5 miles and stretching
Wednesday - swim easy 3300 yards
Thursday - run easy 4 miles!
Friday - spin class - challenging 17 miles
Saturday - run 7 miles outside
Sunday - Spin class - 16 miles

This weekend I'm hoping to run about 2 hours, and then I might just run Philly for some 5 hours of fun in 2 weekends!
