I was a bottomless pit today and yesterday!
(I have to admit I’m glad I’m not a food blogger who documents everything they eat because I would have had to post about 50 different pictures!)
After doing my long run of 13 miles on Sunday, I was hungry all day long yesterday. . . and still feeling the effects today.
When completing a long run, I often have to “force” myself to refuel because I don’t have my usual hunger cravings. Yet I know my body needs to be refueled, so I make sure to get protein and some carbs back in my system.
I can complete about 10 miles without feeling extremely exhausted, so I think this is a mileage my body is pretty well adapted to. However, once I get close to 2 hours of running, I don’t feel hungry the rest of the day, but come the next day. . . watch out because I can’t seem to ever get full!
Just a couple of my eats from the day:
I am addicted to my wraps!
spinach + turkey + havarti cheese + tomato + green onion
These Taco Loco tortilla chips are made locally in Anchorage, and Craig and I love them and have been buying for a couple years now. They have an excellent authentic tortilla taste with just a hint of salt.
And a big bowl of steamed broccoli–one of my favorite ways to eat my veggies!
This ice cream should be illegal to create!! Seriously. . . .this is not good!
I am cutting back my mileage this week because for the past 4 weeks, I’ve increased my mileage 10% each week, so it is time to give my legs/body a little break.
I debated about running 5 miles this morning, but after 3, I knew it was best to only run 4; I was tired! It was still a good run nonetheless!
I have the driest hands and can never seem to find any sort of relief for them.
I have tried so many different kinds/brands of lotion but have never been fully satisfied.
These are the following kinds I have tried recently:
And last night, I bought this kind.
So far I like the Curel, but I want to give it a few days until I’ve had more time to test it out.
Does anyone have any recommendations for a good hand lotion?
Do you get hungry right after a hard/long workout . . . or the next day?
If you could change places with someone for the day, who would it be?
I would love to be Kara Goucher for a day!!
