UPDATE: The full 1 year Ironman training plan that I followed is now available! I was hoping today’s post would be a triumphant one. Relishing on a recently completed 7 or 8 mile run, basking in how seamless the transition from CrossFit athlete to Ironman triathlete has been. But alas, this is a different type […]

This recipe actually came to be when we were trying to think of some healthy alternatives to chicken parm. We wanted the same hearty type of meal, but without the breading and pasta that went along with the traditional recipe. Obviously, it’s morphed a little bit from there, but the result is all the same.
On Tuesday, April 11th, 2017, I stopped CrossFitting. After just completing a weekend of CrossFit competition at the Mid-Atlantic Affiliate Challenge (affectionately referred to as “The MAAC”), I chose to shift my focus for a little while & “see how strong I could get” in 6 months.
