Last week we were once again stuck inside due to sub 0 weather so I made the most of it and put my runners through a killer hill workout on the treadmill. I did a similar workout while training for Boston and it is actually a little fun and great work, believe me your legs will feel it. It is so adaptable to what you need, shorten the intervals and decrease if needed. Hill training is a great tool from runners to provide strength and endurance, check out all the benefits of hill training.
Now my next piece of randomness, check out this story on a 101 year old marathon runner! He started running marathons at 89, wow! and after his marathon next month will retire 5 weeks before he turns 102. Can you even imagine this? I can only hope to still be running (or alive) at that age, but what a great example of how age can't stop you.
And finally the recipe I mentioned earlier this week...
Easy Peanut Stir Fry
1 block extra firm tofu
1 bag (or 2 cups) shredded vegetables (I used broccoli slaw)
2 cloves garlic
Salt to taste
1 tsp onion powder
4 tbsp tamari
4 tbsp lime juice
1/4 cup peanut butter (I don’t measure)
½-1 tbsp chili paste
Heat pan and sauté tofu and garlic chopping as you cook, when browned add onion and 2 tbsp tamari, cook 1-2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook until vegetables desired consistency and heated through. Serve over brown rice.
