Thanks to all of your awesome comments on my FEAR POST, the run this morning went great.
It takes a lot of talent to take a blurry photo on my phone while running (once I stop it is hard to start again) but I wanted to show you my view for the majority of my run. Definitely the best time of year in Utah.
10 miles were done with the sissy and I did 7 on my own (I know, I did a little more than my plan said) @ an 8:18 pace. I wasn’t even paying attention to my pace or shooting for anything particular but it is the exact same average pace that I did last week on my long run. I guess that is what my body wants to do right now.
Why show you a picture of the back of me? I don’t really know besides the fact that I wanted to show you my fuel of choice for the day that I put in my secret pocket in the back of my capris. The last two starbursts were way to sweaty to eat at the end (I, Janae Jacobs actually had to throw away candy, I will NEVER do such a thing again). PS I have worn my Zensah shirt for the last 3 long runs, kind of obsessed with it.
The starbursts worked GREAT. I felt the surge of energy and ate ten of them throughout my run. The sugar obsession starts as early as 7 a.m.
Came home. Stretched. Foam rolled and took an ice bath (it has been 8 months since my last bath and holy cow….those HURT but my hot chocolate milk with glutamine made it a little more bearable. Also, watching Felicity at the same time helped big time to distract me and prepare me for my upcoming New York trip. I learn so much through television).
For bfast I had an egg sandwich and for lunch…..
Mixing bowl salad (with ranch and bbq sauce), greek yogurt, banana and the softest chocolate chip cookie I have had in a while.
Billy is now watching football and I am trying to convince my mom to meet me for ice cream…..I have already told her that ice cream aids recovery now I am just waiting for her reply.
Have you ever used candy for running fuel?
Favorite greek yogurt brand?
-Chobani for me.
Do you run with your phone? Do you ever wear running capris?
-Yes and yes.
