I’m currently training for different races this summer 5K, 10K, 15K and a half marathon so my week is full of workouts and runs. I need fast recovery and a lot of protein to help my body keep up with the pace. I rencently started using Protein powder to help me maintain my workouts and it made a huge difference. I have more energy to finish my whole workouts and the next day I’m not as sore as I used to be on my next workout. I take recovery small shake after each workout but I like to include something else that gives me energy throughout the day so I whipped up these magical little protein balls. It gave me 10-11 servings, depending on the size of the balls. About 120 call per servings.
I have my first 10K tomorrow and my goal is to run it inside 50 to 55 minutes. Wish me luck!
