This isn’t a normal thing for me but for the last nine weeks that is what I have been doing. During Billy’s internship (only NINE work days left….I am so ready to have a husband again during the week:) I have been leaving way too early (I don’t write how early I leave for safety reasons) and it is just too early for me to stomach eating anything. I usually eat a bigger dinner than normal and a snack right before I go to bed so when I wake up I am not hungry at all. I also eat breakfast approximately 12 seconds after walking in the door because by the time I am done with my run I am hungry.
When I was running a little later I would eat a piece of bread with jam or a banana and go. Before a race I ALWAYS eat bread with jam and some gatorade. Gatorade is like liquid candy to me so I really like that tradition. I will keep you updated on what I do once I am running a little bit later and as my mileage increases I am sure I will have to eat something but for now this is what is working for me.
Workout: 3 miles @ 8:00 pace, 4 miles @ 7:23 pace and 1 mile @ 6:55 pace. It was super windy this morning and cold (people dealing with crazy heat please don’t punch your computer screen for me saying that) but overall it was a great run. Foam rolled while watching a new episode of the Kardashians (I hate that I just admitted that to you) and 30 minutes of core work.
Today Brooke and I used our zoo passes to go see some animals with friends.
I guarantee I could put Brooke on this ride for an hour straight and she would smile the whole time. She thinks she is too cool for school when she is driving around the little car.
I drove to the zoo with a friend and she had to go to Costco after and asked if I wanted to come…. is that even a question? I got the necessities and then we ate lunch there afterwards.
PS see that gorgeous girl on the right? That would be my cousin (but more like a sister) and she is driving here to stay for a week! She is about 90 minutes away…..
Brooke’s 11 Month Old Update!
What about you? What do you eat before a morning run? Does it depend on how far you are going or what type of workout you are doing?
Ever eaten at the Costco food court? What do you get?
What have you done so far today?
