Happy Thursday, peeps!
Even with my 12 hour work day yesterday, I’m feeling good this morning. I’m on day 11 of paleo and going strong. Noticing a lot less bloat, thank goodness. I even felt snazzy enough to wear my shirt tucked in with a belt today! Gasp.
Weekend plans consist of a long run and a big juicy bacon burger topped with grilled onions, avocado and tomato. Mmmmm.
Crazy day at work
I have literally been Olivia Pope all day.
Grocery store humor?
So I’m in the checkout line and being rung up by a young kid. We’ll call him Joey.
Joey: is it still warm outside?
Me: yeah, it’s not too bad.
Joey: oh good. It seems to be either really cold or really warm lately.
Me: yeah, I hope we have an actual spring instead of going straight to summer.
Joey: exactly. I don’t want to go straight from hooded jackets to wife beaters.
Joey: I don’t think I’m allowed to say wife beaters at work.
Thankful to be able to sneak away from work for a quick walk when things get stressful. Took some time to notice the flowers and feel the sun on my face.
Started receiving text updates for our tumblr runners and I’m so excited!!!
Fueling up with a sweet potato, almond butter, a banana and a few strawberries before my run did the trick.
I ran a comfortable 5.75 miles in 66 minutes with my sister in law. No post-run nausea. Yay!
As soon as I got home, I made two scrambled eggs and a coconut milk/banana/cherry/blueberry smoothie.
Thankful I’ve found paleo foods that can nourish me during my “longer” runs rather than bagels, pasta, oatmeal.
Have a great Sunday and Happy Easter!
I used to be able to see elevation gain and loss when I uploaded my runs, and now I don’t. Does anyone know why or how to fix this?
Ooh baby, look at that beeeyootiful steak!
Breakfast: apple banana mug muffin
Snack: half Kits organic lemon vanilla chai bar (note to self- eww)
Lunch: shredded chicken with fresh guacamole, strawberries, pepperoni
Dinner: steak, squash and sweet potato fries
When I ate strictly paleo about a year ago, I struggled during my long training runs. I would be overcome with extreme nausea shortly after finishing my run, and the feeling wouldn’t go away for hours. I’d spend most Sunday afternoons running 5-12 miles, and then immediately after, wallowing in bed in pain.
This time around, I’m trying to prepare better. I realize that my body was craving carbs to fuel my runs, and even though I wasn’t eating traditional pastas or bagels, that didn’t mean I couldn’t give my body the proper nutrition it needed.
For tomorrow’s long run, I’ve fueled up with sweet potato fries tonight and I’ll also eat another sweet potato in the form of breakfast hash tomorrow morning. I’ll likely eat a banana before the run, too.
Fingers crossed this will do the trick.
