Just eating my oatmeal in bed because it gave me four more minutes under the covers. I’m not fancy with my oatmeal, I’m just using Trader Joe’s oatmeal packets, and they are doing the trick. Sometimes I have one pack, and sometimes, I have two.
Yesterday felt awful. I would have turned around and gone home if it wasn’t for these people. Andrew came and biked with me for the last one once everyone else was done, and it saved me.
Sometimes you have to call a workout when you feel awful, and sometimes, you need to scale the paces back a bit and push through it because it is your mind holding you back (I’m in the Late Luteal Phase, and I don’t mix well with it… which is sadly where I was at for the St. George Marathon this year). I’m also guessing that eating 50 pieces of my kid’s Halloween candy in bed as I was crying while watching a movie the night before didn’t help either;)
It snowed all day, and we had a typical afternoon of homework.
Pizza for dinner.
PS it was cold enough yesterday for Andrew to wear a coat and pants?!
Do you typically overdress or underdress in the winter?
Do you use caffeinated gels/fuel during your run?
-I learned on the podcast with Meghann Featherstun that it takes an hour to kick in fully and then lasts an hour.
Do you ever eat in bed or no way?
How did your last speed workout feel?
