Types of Runs To Do, What to Buy at TJ’s and a Flash Flavanol GIVEAWAY

Types of Runs To Do, What to Buy at TJ’s and a Flash Flavanol GIVEAWAY


Hello friends!

Happy Monday!

STUFT Daddy is off work today and the gem that he is let me sleep in a little and get on the treadmill while he helped the boys with their LEGO kits from the Brick-or-Treat event. I know, I’m freakishly lucky.


I wasn’t sure how the run was going to go, but told myself if it felt good I was going to throw some speed work in there.

I went for it and it wasn’t too shabby.

20 minute warm-up followed by 4 sets of 7 minutes at 6:40 pace with 3 minutes of recovery in between.

Then I did a couple cool down miles while the last The Mindy Project episode finished.

2014-10-20 09.10.162014-10-20 09.12.08

I feel like I’m kind of just trying to hold on through the the next month or so with running and my races and then I need some time off to just reevaluate some goals and my training, etc.

I just need a clearer picture in my head. I actually need one for a lot of other life stuff at the moment too, but hey, we’re figuring it out. Ha.

So since I finally got a little speed work in this morning I thought I’d pass these two awesome articles along about running. The first one is about basic types of runs you should be doing.

The 8 Basic Types Of Runs

Recovery Run

Base Run

Long Run

Progression Run


Hill Repeats

Tempo Run


So let’s see, out of the eight they list (and explain) above, I’d say I do about 4 of them (basic, recovery, long and occasional intervals). Does anyone really do all of them? How the heck would someone fit them all in?

Maybe mixing up a few more of these into my training for next year should be part of the plan.

The running workouts in this article,

Three Workouts to Increase Pain Tolerance

particularly don’t sound fun. Yikes. I mean they list the hard part of the run as “suffer it”. Man oh man, I haven’t done any of these and quite frankly they scare me, but I guess if you dream big, you better work just that much harder. Beavis.


The boys and I went to Trader Joe’s yesterday. I really need to stay away from that place when I’m hungry. It’s just dangerous. I guess it’s also dangerous with two nearly five year olds though too.

These are my favorite apples. Jass apples. They’re pretty expensive in other stores, but TJ’s has this big bag of little ones for pretty cheap. You’ve got to try them.

2014-10-19 17.55.32

I also just recently discovered this soft pretzel stick.

2014-10-19 17.57.30

Have you ever had it? If you love big huge soft pretzels, you really must try this too.


Since it’s going to be a long night and I’m purposely not going to be by the computer when I get home from teaching, here’s a flash giveaway.

The New York Marathon is less than two weeks away and my butler has been making sure I’m getting my daily Cocoa Flavanols.


That guy, always watching out for me. Ha ha. He’s even finally serving me coffee in my new travel mug.


I’ve talked about my love for CocoaVia and all it’s health benefits a bazillion times. I’ve gotten Mom taking these gems and now I want to give some to you. They are the official sponsor for our trip to NY and my goodness I just want to share the love with you.





Three winners will receive a 30 day supply of CocoaVia capsules.

All you have to do is leave me a comment here telling me:

your favorite kind of chocolate, favorite find at Trader Joe’s or favorite kind of running workout.


Giveaway will be open until Thursday night at 11:59 pm PST. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments below. Open to US residents only.



See you tomorrow! Have a wonderful rest of your day!

    I love dark chocolate and TJ’s pumpkin butter 🙂

    Brandt says:

    Favorite chocolate is dark. The darker the better. Or anything with mint. Or whatever’s right in front of me at the moment. We don’t have a TJ’s close by, but when we go, we go hard. Always a fan of the JoJo’s (the candy cane ones are epic) and cookie butter. As far as running workouts, I strangely enjoy speed work, specifically mile repeats, as they pack on the mileage without getting too tedious.

    Bethp262 says:

    I LOVE Trader Joe’s Sea Salt & Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds. They are delicious! Luckily I don’t have a TJ’s near me, so I only have them maybe once or twice a year!

    LauraT says:

    I love CocoaVia! I buy the powder stick packs and mix it in my coffee or yogurt. I am addicted to anything dark chocolate so I especially love the CocoaVia since it comes in an unsweetened variety and adds a super cocoa flavor to things. Plus the super good for you flavanols that you mentioned.

    I hope that your New York marathon is super!

    Cindy Grady says:

    I’m addicted to TJ’s sunflower seeds. They’re “beefy”! And you don’t get as many disgusting/rotting/bugs or whatever as you do with the other brands. I also love their jalapeño sauce for tacos. But to Kristin, I’m sure it tastes like ketchup because she is the spice queen. <3 I'd love to try these capsules that you and your mom take.

    Shay says:

    I love to fartlek. (Pun intended ;] )

    jill says:

    I love from Trader Joes the garlic parmesan pita chips, I love a good old milk chocolate with caramel, and my favorite running workout is the good ol fashion long run.

  8. 8

    My fave chocolate is a plain Galaxy chocolate bar. Smooth milk chocolate.
    My fave Trader joes item at the moment is their coconut oil spray followed by their cookie butter biscoff spread
    My fave workout is in the country. Having recently moved to the city, I miss my slow runs along the water front.

  9. 9
    Kim says:

    Oh, those 3 workouts look brutal. In college we used to do 40 x 200m – killer!! (We would jog/walk a 200 as recovery so it ended up being 10 miles of pure pleasure/torture!!!).

  10. 10

    My favorite chocolate is lindt dark chocolate with sea salt. Or really any chocolate with sea salt. It’s such a delicious combination! 🙂

    I think my favorite run is a progression run. There’s something about starting slow and working my way faster and faster that I really like. It helps push me to see what I can do! 🙂

    michelle kim says:

    Love dark chocolate (the 70% ones from tj’s).

  12. 12
    Laura says:

    I love all chocolate, if I had to choose, I’d say dark chocolate covered almonds would be my favorite. Don’t have a TJ’s anywhere near me, but would love to check one out sometime. Favorite run is the tempo run 🙂

    Kristen says:

    My favorite kind of chocolate is dark chocolate of course. I love TJ’s soy crackers!

  16. 16

    Dark chocolate is my favorite! I have too many great TJ’s items.. but i love their pumpkin butter and their reduced guilt greek yogurt dip, so so addicting!

  17. 17
    Heather says:

    My favorite chocolate is hot chocolate ( I know not what you were looking for). I love running the trails short or long and we don’t have a trader Joe’s anywhere close. Last one I was at was in Boston about 6 years ago 🙁

  18. 18
    Summer Marie says:

    I’ve always loved white chocolate above all other varieties! I don’t even think it’s technically “chocolate”, but it’s delicious nonetheless!

  19. 19
    Christy says:

    pretty much any kind of chocolate will do! I do a mix of workouts, but I usually do some tempo every week, tried to do either hills or speed work weekly this summer, kind of different, but hard to always get in!

  20. 20
    chrissy says:

    I love the 100 calorie dark chocolate sticks at TJ. I live at the beach, so no hill workouts for me, but over the last six months I have really fallen in love with speed work/intervals. It’s a good kind of hurt! 🙂

  21. 21
    Megan F says:

    Dark chocolate is my favorite, but honestly I will eat any chocolate that is in front of me!

  25. 25
    Emily says:

    I’m feeling you on the training. I am just going to try and get through the next three races of this year and then just enjoy a little (mostly mental) break. I want to be ready and pumped for Boston and Big Sur next year! Also, those pretzel rolls are simply the best, aren’t they?!?!

    • 25.1
      STUFT Mama says:

  28. 28
    Stef says:

    I love trader Joes but unfortunately the closest one to me is over an hour drive. But I go every few months to stock pile some stuff. When I go I have to get the sprouted rye bread, some dark chocolate peanut butter cups, tea tree shampoo or conditioner (whatever one I need) and the organic ketchup.

  29. 29

  33. 33
    Kaitlin says:

  34. 34
    Leah H. says:

    Ahh TJ’s is the best! My fave snack is the plaintain chips and the spicy bean dip!

  35. 35
    Sarah L says:

  41. 41

    The honey wheat pretzel sticks at Trader Joes are literally the best ones I’ve ever had! Dipped in peanut butter, OMG…..I can eat an entire bag of them without a problem!

  42. 42
    Tricia @ A Couple of Dashes says:

  45. 45
    stephanie says:

    When it comes to chocolate I normally reach for Dark Chocolate because of the health benefits it offers. But honestly, I love all chocolate!!!! Milk chocolate, white chocolate, whatev….

    I’m so excited about this giveaway because I just finished my bottle of Cocoa Via capsules.Definitely Dark Chocolate!! I love EVERYTHING about Trader Joe’s. If i had to pick one thing i’d have to go with the frozen Brussels Sprouts. I also love the nuts and seeds selection.

  53. 53
    Danielle says:

    I like speed intervals (though I like them more for how good I feel after, not during)!

  54. 54
    Nicole says:

    Love dark chocolate. Favorite find at TJ’s is there coconut oil! Love that stuff!

  55. 55

  59. 59
    Irina says:

  60. 60
    Paige c says:

    I love dark chocolate! My favorite runs are long fast ones and my favorite TJ items are the coconut cashews, pumpkin spices pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate espresso beans, pumpkin macaroons, shaved Brussel sprouts…. Oh I could go on forever!

  63. 63
    Emz says:

    Left comment on wrong post. Fail.

    Love. It.
    The long run….no question.
    Fav find at TJ’s — brown rice-freezer section. Boring but love it. Ohhhhh and the flax chips. Spicy of course.

  66. 66
    Ashley says:

    As far as chocolate, I would be lying if I didn’t say all kinds are my favorite but if I had to chose I’d say anything with coconut (almond joys or mounds). Favorite TJ find would have to be cookie butter, and I e heard it’s also a TJ ice cream flavor as well! Favorite run workout would have to be on the Lady Bird Lake trail in my home city, Austin!

  67. 67
    Grace Smith says:

    I absolutely love tempo runs. I’m a 25 wk pregnant runner so I am missing my tempo runs. Boohoo but Woohoo because I get to just run and not worry about pace or distance. / Trader Joe’s sea salt anything! & no shame in saying this but there’s something about York Peppermint Patties…YUM! No idea why but reminds me of Christmas. LOVE! , IG fan 🙂 @gracetorun

  68. 68
    Jackie says:

    I love dark chocolate but if you put any kind in front of me I won’t complain! Love Trader Joe’s cereal as well as their nut butter. And as much as I sometimes hate them, long run days can absolutely rule, so I’d have to say they’re my favorite!

  69. 69
    Terry says:

    Trader Joe’s has a 70% cocoa organic chocolate bar that doesn’t contain soy lethicin and is delicious! I stock up on those every time I’m there.

  70. 70
    Holly B says:

    The light brie for my husband and the yummy herbed popcorn that I constantly crave!

  71. 71

  72. 72
    Sarah says:

    I love dark chocolate! And I love Trader Joe’s! Their dark chocolate peanut butter cups are so good-my husband and I love them! Anything Trader Joe’s is the best!

  73. 73
    Jillian says:

    My favorite workout is 10X800 with 80 sec rest, it’s a killer but a good indicator of fitness going into a race!

  74. 74
    Wendy R says:

    My favorite chocolate is dark chocolate (I love the Hershey’s Special Dark). My favorite find at Trader Joe’s is their $3.99 Grifone Sangiovese (seriously good wine).

  75. 75
    natasha says:

    Just went to TJ’s today…my latest favorites have been frozen grilled asparagus and smoked paprika. Went looking for Pumpkin O’s (though I rarely eat cereal) but they didn’t have it so I snagged a kabocha instead (: Ugh…I now have way too many but then that’s not a problem!

  76. 76
    Kaitlin says:

    Dark chocolate is my absolute favorite! Dark chocolate silk almond milk is also extremely delicious if you haven’t tried it yet! A trader Joes just opened up a few towns away from me, I’ve been trying to get there to check it out!

  77. 77
    Dorena says:

    My favorite chocolate is anything from See’s Candies. I love the Chocolate Marshmallow Jack-o-lantern during Halloween and then the Chocolate Marshmallow Christmas tree during Christmas time.

  78. 78
    Angela says:

    Dark chocolate, and oddly I’m a treadmill girl.

  79. 79
    Deb E says:

    I’m enjoying a similar product called CocoaWell, which is a cocoa supplement powder and mine is unsweetened and 70% cacao. It has protein and cinnamon, so good and chocolatey, and has helped me cut down on my massive coffee consumption. I’d love to try the capsules too.

  80. 80
    RC Liley says:

    Raw cacao is the best and I love hill sprints for effective running in a time pinch.

  81. 81
    Jennifer S. says:

    My favorite chocolate is milk chocolate with all the peanut butter! I wish I liked dark chocolate more since it’s a bit healthier.

  82. 82
    Angie Jerde says:

    I love, love, love chocolate especially dark chocolate! So smooth and delicious…I recently tried a Dove dark chocolate with hazelnut in it and it easily became my new fav : )
    I can not pin point just one great find at Trader Joes…there are just way too many great products in that store.!

  83. 83
    Ellie says:

    I haven’t been to trader joes in so long since we don’t have one close by my school but I love it so much! I really like the sesame honey cashews (so addicting) and almond butter/sunflower seed butters. The frozen mac n cheese is also pretty delicious and I really want to try the new cookies and creme cookie butter OMG.

  84. 84
    Angie says:

    My favorite choc is Belgian and I love the shredded brussel sprouts at TJ!

  85. 85
    Lanna says:

    Dark chocolate- like Ghirardelli dark with sea sly, especially since it’s individually packaged! Trader Joes- I like their almond butter & PB filled pretzels best (with salt!!! Without, no Bueno!)

  86. 86
    Cathy says:

    Trader Joes Eggplant Hummus is the best…it tastes NOTHING LIKE EGGPLANT, promise!!! And the nutrition stats are pretty darn good….for 2 Tbls
    Cal 35—–Fat 2g—–Sodium 70mg—–Total Carbs 4g—–Protein 2
    And absolutely nothing bad in the ingredients……Chickpeas, eggplant, sesame tahini, lemon juice, garlic, water, sea salt, pomegranate juice. Hello…..try it!!!! I love it best with a green apple for breakfast!!

    • 86.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I have to find that hummus!

      • Cathy says:

        It’s with the rest of them….and it’s one of the cheapest too!! Winning!!
        P.S.. I love this website/blog, whatever you call it…heheh
        Just finally tried kabocha….yummy! This was the first year I saw it at TJ’s.
        You’ve turned me on to so many different foods, I have to thank you!!

  87. 87
    Megan Stout says:

    Trader Joes Pumpkin Pancakes!

  88. 88

    I love trader joes pumpkin and fig butter but two things I have been dying to try are the chocolate honey bites Diane from balanced bites raved about and the cookies and cream butter.

  89. 89

    I am a dark chocolate kind of gal who likes long runs. Dark chocolate + a long run = happy gal!

  90. 90
    Anne says:

    TJ’s shredded brussel sprouts and the greek feta dressing – yum!

  91. 91
    kendyl says:

    World market 99% dark chocolate bar, hands down, best in my book! And I “get” the love/hate thing with Costco. However I finally (thank goodness!) have it down to a science (going in at off peak hours. It’s the BEST!). Happy shopping! God bless!

  92. 92
    Jennifer Shaw says:

    I love, love, love Trader Joe’s! There are so many great treats, but right now I am looking forward to candy cane Jo-Jos and candy cane chocolate covered pretzel flats!!

  93. 93
    Tess says:

    I LOVE the TJ dark chocolate….simple, chocolatey, devine. I also love all the pumpkin stuff at TJ’s. (pumpkin bread, cookies, biscotti, butter……) CocoaVia sounds like the perfect marriage of health and chocolate..YUM

  94. 94
    Jen says:

    TJ’s Pumpkin Joe’s cereal. I am thinking of buying ~12 boxes because I know they will be gone soon 🙁 My fav workout is a good tempo run!

  95. 95
    Stacey says:

    dark chocolate!! We have no TJ’s around here (so jealous of all that do) and I have a love/hate relationship with running. I am more of a HIIT or interval training kind of person. If I have to run I usually always choose sprints.

  96. 96
    Holly says:

    Definitely dark chocolate with sea salt and almonds. You can never go wrong with that.

  97. 97
    Michelle C says:

    My favorite run is the fartlek or intervals. I think mainly because there is a recovery period in there! My favorite chocolate is any chocolate/peanut butter combo. Two of my most favorite things together! Wish we had a TJ here. Would be there way too much!

  98. 98
    Jenny says:

    My favorite chocolate is any dark chocolate from Ghirardelli!

  99. 99
    Angie says:

    Dark chocolate is my absolute favorite, but I’m not turning my nose up at any form of chocolate. My fave find from TJ’s would probably be a toss up between their dried fruits (mango, please) and nut selection or their Cowboy Caviar.

  100. 100
    Melissa Jo says:

    Ghirardelli Twilight Dark Chocolate, Love interval.. I run interval with the light polls around the block

  101. 101
    Beverly Aragon says:

    I love, love, love Trader Joe’s!!! Too bad the nearest location is over 3 hours away from me. But when I’m able to shop there, I always stock up on all the good stuff–especially their organic blue corn tortilla chips. OMG, they are addicting!

  102. 102
    marie says:

    Dove dark is my favorite chocolate, but those dark chocolate oranges that you whack apart are a close second.

  103. 103
    Julia H. says:

    My favorite run would be a nice n easy long distance! It may seem weird, but my fave Chocolate is Lindt 90%, and my favorite trader joes find would have to be PUMPKIN SPICED ALMONDS!!!:)

  104. 104
    Jess says:

    My favorite find at is their Quinoa Cowboy Veggie burgers! I LOVE them!

    • 104.1
      STUFT Mama says:

      I just bought those for the first time, but haven’t tried them yet. They’re good?

      • Jess says:

        They are so good! I eat them plain, mixed with brown rice, and extra black beans and salsa! Or have an open faced sandwich with Ezekiel bread the burger, tomatoes, roasted red peppers and avacado slices! Yum!

  105. 105
    Jordan says:

    I’m a dark chocolate kind of gal. And I love TJ’s, so many amazing products! I think one of my favorites is the chili spiced mango.

  106. 106
    Ariel says:

    My favorite chocolate is any chocolate that is accompanied by peanut butter. and my fav TJ find is their canned light coconut milk. 99 cents, and the only ingredients are coconut milk and water…no additives, no guar gum, nothing. The perfect milk for my morning coffee 🙂

  107. 107
    Cindy says:

    1) Ghiradelli’s dark chocolate w sea salt and carmel 2) chocolate covered peanut butter pretzels (and now I must try that pretzel stick) 3) hill runs
    I’ve actually been really interested in CocoaVia since I’ve been following you. I see it has many health benefits….Would you consider it similar to taking a fish oil? Just curious….As always, thank you for the opportunity to win some cool prizes.

    • 107.1
