Happy May Day everyone!  Welcome to the season of  “Oh crap!  Only a few weeks before the pool opens for the summer!  Why didn’t I do anything about this a month ago?!?!”

Being unwillingly dragged to the pool by my children is not my only fitness concern this first day of May.  I am also training for a duathlon in July and a half marathon in October.  Deep down, I know these races keep me working out hard and accountable to all who are cheering me on, but having trained for triathlons and half marathons before, I also know how much time it takes!

 

I am a much better couch potato than I am a runner, biker or swimmer 🙂

During these peak training months, it is so important that I am getting the proper amounts of protein to keep my muscles working hard.  That is always a difficult thing for me because I am not a huge meat lover so I often use protein powder to supplement.  While it seems like a simple concept, I really despise the taste of protein powder.  I know I am not alone in my feelings, which is why I am so exited to share with you the main way I use protein powder!  It is seriously the best recipe for a protein shake you will find….and I have tried many of them 🙂  I have one most days around 3:30 when my sweet tooth kicks in and I’m ready to attack any form of chocolate I can find!

Please give it a try and let me know what you think!  As far as the nutritional numbers:  Protein 38 g, Calories 400, Carbs 48 g, Fat 10 g

  1. 1. In a blender, or with a stick blender and a large cup, mix together all the ingredients until smooth. I like the banana to be frozen because it gives it more of a shake texture and temperature!
