Aaron and I did the first 7 through the River Oaks area of Houston, then he went back home and I did another 2 by myself. The weather was absolutely incredible and I was able to run the last three at an 8:30 pace, which made me happy.
While I was running, I realized I have finally gotten my groove on when it comes to pre-run meals... I think. Anyone else struggle with this? I don't want to be hungry, but I don't want to be too full either. I did oatmeal for a long time, but I had to wait a while before I could run after eating it. Then I tried toast and peanut butter, but I think the peanut butter was too heavy.
For my last few runs, I have eaten toast with sunflower seed butter and some banana. Its perfect! I also have a cup of coffee, most of the time.
This week I had some decent mileage & workouts:
- Monday - yoga class
- Tuesday - 3.6 miles on TM
- Wednesday - 6.8 miles, arm workout
- Thursday - 4 miles of trails
- Friday - rest
- Saturday - 3 miles on TM, ab workout, legs & butt workout, 10 minutes of elliptical
- Sunday - 10 miles
- TOTAL: 27.4 miles and 3 days of cross training!
Anyone else have an awesome weekend run?
What do you eat before you run?
