Carrot And Beetroot Smoothie, Runstreak Day 10

Hard work on the tired legs trying to run everyday, but still managing to do my #runstreak.

Nearly had to stop my challenge on Tuesday as I had planned to run with friends at the running club that night.

I had a shock when I arrived home from school ( long story short I found my husband very poorly on the floor with a bad case of vertigo ).

1 hour after phoning the NHS direct help line and the doctors I had to run to pick up a prescription up for some strong medicine.

Even though I didn’t want to run I still got my 3 miles run in that day,really need to get back into the car again after 10 years off driving!!.

On Wednesday morning I managed just under 6 miles and another 5 today.

Today I’m sharing a healthy smoothies with beetroot. I’ve heard they say  beetroot can improve running …

Serves 1-2


  • 200g Peeled and chopped carrots
  • 100g Cooked  pre packed beetroot, cut into slices
  • 100g Washed and chopped celery
  • 1 Red apple,core removed and chopped
  • 250 ml Red grape juice from concentrate
  • 2 Handfuls of ice cubes
  • Salt and pepper


  • Place the chopped carrots,beetroot,celery and apple and place into a smoothie maker.
  • Pour the grape juice inside.
  • Place the ice cubes in.
  • Add a little salt and pepper to taste.
  • Set speed to mix for 1 minute then smooth for 30 seconds.
  • Serve straight away.

    That's looks pretty yummy! I'm hoping to work myself up to 6 miles by the end of February. So far I get to 5 and I feel like I'm going to die. I guess my body has hit another wall. Any tips on how to get around that wall??

      Do you run with a friend? I find if I'm on my own I cant run as far but with a friend I run until they stop. or with a set mile in mind,sometimes when I'm on my own I set a mile challenge and don't come home till its reached this is how I did 12 miles on my own last week it was so hard but I did it 🙂 Dailymile has some great challenges you can join too 🙂
