Week 9: McFadden McMeeken Phillips Lawyers Nelson Women’s Triathlon Training Programme

I’ve prepared a twelve week training programme to prepare you for the McFadden McMeeken Phillips Lawyers Nelson Women’s Triathlon. Each Thursday I will post it here for you to follow along with.This programme started on Monday 23 January 2017. The first weeks of the programme can be found:

Three Absolutely Delicious Smoothie Recipes

The great thing about these smoothie recipes is that you control the quality of the ingredients going into the blender. The fresher the better they will be for your health.

Matcha Kale Smoothie

Mix a few leaves of kale, banana, coconut water and ice with a scoop of matcha (powdered green tea available from health shops).

Chai, Raspberry and Banana Smoothie

Mix a banana, frozen raspberries, milk, Greek yoghurt, 2 teaspoons chia seeds and 2 teaspoons liquid honey in a blender.

Ray’s Fav Smoothie

Mix banana, yoghurt, milk, frozen mixed berries, 4-6 almonds, 4-6 dates and a teaspoon of liquid honey in a blender.
