It is official, I will not be able to eat Subway for at least 24 months. As you know, I ate a huge ol’ Subway sandwich right before my run and I felt it the whole time. Onion breath and veggies trying to digest is no bueno while running.
Let’s look at the bright side….it helped me with my mental toughness.
The guy in front of me had a shirt on that said, “PAIN IS WEAKNESS LEAVING YOUR BODY.”
I kept think, “PAIN IS SUBWAY LEAVING MY BODY.” I kept laughing to myself about that. Hey, I need to entertain myself while running. I also watched Ellen, Oprah and ‘I Used to be Fat.’
I did 23 Miles on the treadmill in a little less than 3 hours. Now I just need to whip out another 3.2 in the same time. Um…..yeah, I got a lot to work on.
So, I suck at fueling properly for a run, but I do know how to refuel afterwards.
If you are new to the blog you must know one thing about us….our weekend dates have to be free. Somehow, we always pull it off and tonight was no different.
We went to the sis-in-law’s work party and it was unbelievable. Started off with free salad (drenched in dressing but oh so delicious…none of this dipping your fork into the dressing and then taking a bite of dry lettuce here, all or nothing) and delicious pizza times 3.
You may also notice a plate the same size as my dinner plate in the background full of candy. Yep, they had a candy bar and now my purse is jam packed full of candy. In Utah we have candy bars rather than open bars. What am I going to do when we move from Utah….I guess it will be BYOC (bring your own candy).
Don’t make fun, I only had 30 minutes to get ready after my run, but that is because I took a 20 minute ice bath. No ice=fill up bowls of snow from outside to fill up your bathtub and turn on your computer to watch a little Gilmore Girls and shiver away. I cannot testify more about the benefits of ice baths, they help so much to reduce soreness and prevent injuries. I wouldn’t lie to you, try it. Next time I will be drinking hot chocolate at the same time.
This would be a rap concert that they provided for us after dinner. Provo, Utah knows how to party. P.S. Mom that is special effect smoke….not smoke from other stuff, I promise.
The talking really fast but called rapping was followed by a comedian. I was laughing the whole time. My smile muscles hit the wall harder than my legs did earlier on my run.
Finished off my refueling with 43 mini carrot cake cupcakes. 43 mini ones=1 regular size one.
We’ve got a lot of b-days today….go tell them Happy Birthday and that you love them!!! BlueEyedRunner,MelissaDishes and JoggingWithFiction (she is also having an AWESOME bake sale, go bid on my cookies:)
