Ciabatta Bread. Watermelon. Turkey. Potato Salad. A pregnant woman’s fantasy.
I think I inherited some of my dad’s inventor genes (he is an inventor for his job) and I invented a new sandwich combination when I added potato salad IN my sandwich. I am waiting for Subway to call me any minute to buy the patents for my creation. Speaking of my parents, they just got back from PARIS (yes, I was mad they didn’t invite me and I am expecting an awesome souvenir). This was their first time to Europe and they had the time of their lives. I told my mom she isn’t allowed to tell me how good the pizza was or I would cry.
After lunch we hit up the pool and palm trees make me feel even more like I am on vacation.
Dinner was a random combination but it totally worked. Roasted veggies, pasta with butter, pizza and leftover ribs from Sunday night.
Double-stuffed oreos to finish the night off at 11 pm.
PS Charlie knows exactly when it is bed time. He will be running around and the next thing you know it he will go completely rag doll as soon as my mother-in-law gets up to take him upstairs for bed. He acts as though he can no longer walk or hear us telling him it is bedtime. I used this same strategy until 9th grade.
I have been reading through Kara Goucher’s book, Running for Women, again and came across something that got me thinking. PS this book is one of my all-time favorite running books.
This is something that I used to do before races. I even raced a 1/2 marathon on my femoral stress fractures because I thought that I was just experiencing muscle pains and took painkillers before the race. I guarantee that doing this made the fractures worse and therefore take longer to heal. Now that I am pregnant I don’t take any medicine and so I have stopped doing that. I am learning to stop if something hurts instead of masking the problem with ibuprofen. It is way better to miss a race or take a few days off instead of having to take months off because you made the problem worse by running on it.
Do you ever take painkillers before you run? Do you think it is harmful?
Ever been to Europe? What part?
Do you have palm trees where you live?
Had any random combinations of food for a meal lately? Do share.
