I am going to start increasing my eats before long runs. I usually only have one piece of toast with PB, but as I am increasing my mileage I need to increase my before run eats. Today I stuck with the toast and PB&J, and then added another hunk of bread with PB. I am increasing my before run eats slowly so I don’t upset my stomach 🙂 Each week I may add a little more.
Marathon Training: I did 15 miles today in 2:20:17. I felt really good through the majority of the run! Maybe ice cream is a good carb loading technique. I also think the pasta with salt helped!
This is what I took on my run – a water bottle filled with Camel elixir and chomps. I used to only drink water on my long runs, but have realized the benefits of chews and Gus on runs – do it, if you don’t yet!
On my run I thought about breakfast – hey, if I am running 15 miles I expect a good meal (or two) out of it! It always comes down to the age old question: “Smoothie or Pancakes?” I went with both and made a small smoothie to enjoy while making the pancakes.
I basically make my pancake recipe up as I go along. It is ww flour, oats, egg, cottage cheese, soy milk, baking powder, salt and cinnamon blended up.
When I poured the batter into the pan I added sliced banana. It was amazing! I also topped it with maple syrup and some PB post pic 🙂
Ben and I were going to do the sightseeing thing again today, but it’s raining. Actually, it started to rain on me at mile 13 and it was just drizzly enough that I loved it! We may postpone that to tomorrrow.
I just realized that we ate breakfast at 11:30am – this is why my weekend eats get so thrown off!
Make it a great Saturday!
