Supplements, Senior Photos, and a Pretty Hike

As I’m amping up my training getting ready for the Happy Girl 10K and the Spokane Half, I’ve been feeling fatigued during and after running, more so than normal. So naturally, it’s time to increase supplements. I always immediately go for an increase in iron since low iron runs in my family. That combined with being a runner means I definitely should be supplementing.

Always take your iron with vitamin C for better absorption.

I’ve also been taking fish oil to help libricate my joints and turmeric to keep inflammation low.

I take an amino acid pre workout drink with BCAA’s (branched chain amino acid) before I run to help with energy and recovery. In addition, I drink protein shakes, I do a multi vitamin, zinc, and plan on adding magnesium.

What do you take? Any recommendations?

Got out for a few miles! Doesn’t the Spokane River look beautiful this time of year!?!?

Logging Road Hike

Dan and I finally had a weekend together with no kiddos, so we decided to go for a hike up behind his cabin. I love taking the girls, but sometimes its nice when its just us. We hiked around the normal trails, but did a little exploring and found some logging roads. I’m pretty sure there was about a foot of super soft dirt, so we were real clean after haha

Fish Tacos!

So, I love the regulars that come into the bar. Bruce and Angie brought in some purple cabbage and cucumber for Miranda and I. So I thought fish tacos were appropriate 🙂

We used this recipe from Pinterest. The slaw was cabbage, cucumber, pineapple, and a squeezed lime. So good!

 

Dan made the tilapia on the cast iron skillet, and we also topped it with Trader Joe’s Cilantro dressing, and an avacado which pulled the whole recipe together nicely.

Speaking of cucumber, try this!!
