Undoing 30 Years of Running

Last weekend I attended my first ever “official” running course conducted by CrossFitEndurance Australia and WOW! What an eye opener! In the past I have run half and full marathons, competed in triathlons and generally run for enjoyment, all with what I believed to be an efficient and effective running style. After all, whenever there is running in a WOD, people at CrossFit Tenacity always say “gee I wish I could run like Russ, he looks so comfortable”. Thanks guys, but you could not be further from the truth.  I am definitely an avid fan of long distance running, no matter how much I try to fight it. I am built to run and can do it somewhat effectively over long periods.

GrowEatRun Banana Protein Muffins

We have a new website!  

For lots more recipes please visit

Well, the masses have spoken! And to celebrate cracking the monumental amount of 500 likes on Facebook for Grow Eat Run we're sending this recipe out with a massive thanks and hoping that this little part of our lives (that is quickly becoming a large part...) is in some way helping you guys along the way out there! These are choc full of natural protein, healthy fats and low GI carbs. They are a perfect pre or post work out chomp and even better as a healthy 3pm hunger buster along side a long black with coconut oil or a cuppa tea with almond milk. These are 100% paleo and for those in The Zone, this makes up exactly three 2 block snacks.  This makes 12 cupcake sized muffins.
