Well, six weeks until the CDA Marathon, May 25th. Starting to really focus on my long runs, as they are the guide for how things will go at the Marathon. The number one rule about Marathon running is never to change things up for the Marathon. What you eat, what you wear and how you fuel should be exactly as they are on long run days as they will be on race day.
So this morning was 2 cups of coffee with 1/4c Homemade Almond Milk
in each. And my fav oatmeal before running, 1/2c quick oats, 1c water, and 1T almond butter. And some water with lemon. I give my tummy about 3 minutes to digest before heading out.
I pre-planned my 14 mile loop with the plan to refuel at 7 miles. Isn’t this path gorgeous?
The refuel was a second Nuun tablet, a PowerBar Gel, and FRS chew. Worked like a champ.
Worked so well that my second half was a few minutes faster than my first!
Returned home for my favorite recover drink, 1 scoop protein, 1 dash of glutamine, 1T cocoa, over ice and filled with coffee. This is totally my fav recovery drink.
Then planned the Bill & the kids’ meals for the week, made my grocery list, and went to get groceries.
Dinner for me tonight was a BBQ chicken chopped salad. YUM.
And Overnight Oats for breakfasts.
Makes for one solid little Sunday.
