A few of my favorite products include:
Cliff Kid Zbar in Chocolate Chip
Luna Sport Watermelon Moon Energy Chews (similar to shot bloks but smaller)
Luna Sport Dark Chocolate Recovery Smoothie
I needed to replenish my supply of Cliff products so when I was at Whole Foods the other day, I stocked up on bars & bloks and was pleasantly surprised when I saw a new Cliff product that I had to try. The new Luna Protein bars are less than 200 calories and have 12 g of protein & 3 g of fiber. They come in 3 flavors: chocolate peanut butter, chocolate chip cookie dough, and chocolate cherry almond. I bought the chocolate peanut butter & the chocolate chip cookie dough bars and tried the chocolate peanut butter the other day. It was chocolaty, nougaty goodness! It didn't have a "proteiny" taste and despite it's small size, it was pretty filling.
I was curious if Cliff had any other new products so I went to their website and found these:
According to their website, Shot Roks promote recovery post-activity and have 20 g of protein. Wow! They have a crunchy shell with chewy center and come in 3 flavors: peanut butter, chocolate, and chocolate chip cookie dough. Hopefully this show up in stores sometime soon otherwise I might have to break down & order some online.
I got my 12 mi progression run in this morning on the treadmill as it had snowed overnight. I felt amazing during my run even though I was a bit sore from lifting yesterday & tired from getting up early. I started at 8:19 pace to warm up and gradually increased the speed, ending with the last quarter mile at 6:58 pace. I ran the 12 mi in 1:34:18 for an average pace of 7:51. My goal was to run under 8:00 pace (goal marathon pace) so I'm very happy with this run. I did this similar run 3 weeks ago and I ran 3 minuntes faster today!
