Friday Night Prep.
I don’t always eat pasta the night before my Saturday run, but when the miles start to get into the 20’s…game on!
I make sure to lay everything out the night before, because who’s brain works at 4am? Mine does not.
Vega Sport Recovery Accelerator (Apple Berry).
Gu (Chocolate Outrage).
Cocogo (Raspberry Passion Fruit). ***Use Code: JENCHOOSESJOY for 40% off your order
Picky Bar (Cookie Doughpness).
Nespresso Vertuoline and Aeroccino (It’s the only frother I’ve found that works really well on almond or soy milk)
Saturday Long Run
100 % humidity at 6am…good times!
I am pacing an awesome Fleet Feet Nashville: Chicago Marathon training group. I ran 3 solo miles, met my group and paced for 18 miles. 21.5 total.
My favorite recovery breakfast is oatmeal. Isn’t this the prettiest oatmeal?! Trust me…it tasted even better than it looked!!!
3 of our nephews were staying with us this weekend, so after an ice bath and oatmeal, my husband and I took them rock climbing. I felt surprisingly good after running (no soreness at all). That’s a lot of progress for me!
After rock climbing, we stopped for dinner and froyo.
Sweet Cece’s. I promise there’s froyo underneath that cookie dough;)
A couple of weeks ago, I entered the lottery for the Flying Monkey Marathon. Well…I got in. Let the terror begin to set in. This is going to be a doozy. Here is a note from the RD and the elevation chart:
“Today is not your lucky day. Today is, in fact, a bad bad day for you. I am sorry.
We have run the lottery, and your name was selected as one that can participate in this year’s Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon. Yep. You are in. Words cannot express how sorry I am for you. Or how sorry you will be. Anyhow, looks like you are in. Good luck with that. You will most certainly regret it. I’ll be in touch.”
What do you eat for dinner the night before you long run/race day? Are you superstitious about eating the same foods each week?
I’m wrapping up my first week of blogging. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your support and encouragement!!! #choosejoy
