With our sprint intervals the goal like last week  is to be consistent with your times. . It should be about 85-90% effort.  Make sure and keep your time for each individual run and post it.

If you have been following the program your running should be getting better by now.

Nutritional Tips.

Week 4: Fruit

 

Summer is a great time to work on increasing your fruit intake (Frozen fruit is an alternative). Farmers markets and many groceries stores sell local fruit from our area which means it’s likely going to have more flavor, freshness, and slightly more nutrients. Incorporating more fruit into your diet is a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth naturally. Some of my favorite summer fruits are berries. The specific type of berry doesn’t matter; they are all great sources of antioxidants, fiber, vitamin C, potassium and folate. Try to incorporate about 1.5-2 cups of fruits per day this week.  Try adding fresh berries or cherries to a fruit and veggie smoothie or eat a cup as a pre-workout snack. Any way you can get ‘em in is great! Here is a great dessert recipe:

Greek Yogurt with Warm Berry Sauce

 

Frozen berries make this a year-round treat. Although this is dessert, there's enough protein to consider it for breakfast.

  • Yield: Serves 4

 

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup fresh or frozen blueberries

  • 2/3 cup fresh or frozen blackberries

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 cups plain 2% reduced-fat Greek yogurt

 

Preparation

1. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low; gently boil 10 minutes or until sauce thickens. Stir in butter.

2. Spoon 1/2 cup yogurt into each of 4 bowls; top each serving with about 1/4 cup sauce.
