My favorite way to recover after a hard run is to plop on the couch with a bag of frosted animal cookies and re-watch the first 3 seasons of ‘The Hills’ for the quadrillionth time.
I have been getting REALLY sore after my runs and decided it is about time that I pay attention to a little thing called my nutrition. Billy did his research thing (remember he is the brains behind the operation) and came up with my new post run fuel. Within 30 minutes of my workout I will have some chocolate milk (tasty and has the perfect ratio of carbs to proteins which is 4:1) with a scoop of Glutamine (non-essential amino acid that boosts recovery time and also boosts your immune system, we bought it at bodybuilding.com). I will let you know how it goes:)
This is a heck of a lot cheaper than other recovery drinks and who doesn’t want chocolate milk at 7 a.m. This will be even more motivation to finish my runs strong.
So, we have become addicted to running documentaries and watched ‘Running Sahara’ after school. 3 men run across the Sahara dessert in 111 days (over 4,000 miles) at some points they were running in temperatures of 140 degrees and wicked sandstorms. Next time I start complaining about it getting a little stuffy in my running room I will picture them and feel a whole lot more comfortable.
Dinner was a random assortment of things. Spinach salad with delicious homemade salsa and a egg/avocado/tomato/black bean panini. Party in my mouth.
Have I told you that I would marry avocado if I could. It is a gift from the heaven’s. This reminds me, I need to go grab a quick spoonful of it before I go to bed.
After dinner Billy went and did his manly rock climbing thing and I went to my best friend since the 4th’s grades house and did girly things like play with babies and eat chocolate.
This is Macey and she is the cutest thing in the world.
I have a confession to make. I am legitimately afraid of losing my children in the future. I lose everything you could imagine and sometimes I am so caught up into thinking about running and candy I forget what is going on around me and I get scared I will lose them. I may or may not have left a student in the bathroom after a field trip once upon a time. It was only for like three minutes but it added to my phobia.
The bff knows me well and served me up some chocolate ice cream and a sugar cookie. Nothing says I love you more than adding another 46 grams of sugar to my already 199 grams of sugar yesterday. It was delicious.
By the time I read your comments I will have finished the Bachelor episode (I am watching it while I run this morning). WHAT DID YOU THINK????
-I will let you know in the afternoon but I have a feeling crazy head is going home.
Do you use any supplements or certain foods to help you recover faster?
Do you enjoy running documentaries or documentaries in general?
-YES, I love peaking into people’s lives and feeling inspired to be better.
Favorite panini fillings?
-As long as there is avocado and cheese I am a happy camper.
