After a long run, I am rarely hungry. In fact, I usually have to force myself to eat post long run. Yes, I’ve read the thousands upon thousands of articles on the importance of eating within the first 30 minutes of a workout, but my tummy just isn’t in the mood for it.
Until the day after. Yowza! I cannot eat enough. I mentioned that to my co-coach, Jolene, during Girls on the Run yesterday and she just laughed and said, “well, you rungry!” Rungry! I like it! And yes, I am rungry! And, I enjoy the liberty of being able to eat as much as I want during training. Just a few weeks ago, I whined to my coach, Paxton, that if he was going to force me to conservatively rack up my weekly mileage, I’d be forced to start watching what I eat! And what fun is that?!? Quite simply:
It didn’t help that I was so tired yesterday on top of it! All I wanted to do was sleep and eat… and then eat and sleep some more 🙂 Have you ever noticed that things seem so much better after a good nap? Or even a good, long, night of sleep? Maybe it’s just me, but this about sums it up for me here:
So, today, you can imagine, I am one happy runner. Fully fueled and well rested 🙂 Stay strong and run on! 🙂
