Today I decided to skip any running, and instead to mix it up a bit with some yoga. I ended up doing 3 different 20 minute free classes from Yogadownload.com and it worked out perfectly. If all goes well, tonight will be my 3rd upper body workout of the week. I'm writing it here so I HAVE to do it!
Breakfast was the same thing I've had every morning for months...oatmeal. I love it and I don't want to have anything else, but sometimes I feel like I should branch out a bit!
Lunch was another egg-beater and cheese wrap, this time with spinach and salsa. Strawberries and grapes on the side:
And from there I really shouldn't say. It's basically a grocery list. Can we just say it's an actual disease?
Bottomless-pit-itis: feelings of insatiable hunger, brought about by extended bouts of exercise. Treat by feeding at 30 minute intervals. Symptoms are worsened if patient is attempting to avoid sugary foods. Eat chocolate around these patients at your own risk.
I was NOT feeling sugar-free week today. I'm ending it tomorrow, so just a bit longer to go. I'll probably survive. Be prepared for my breakfast tomorrow morning to be piles of candy.
Anyone else suffer from bottomless-pit-itis?
Anyone, anyone? The day after long runs I basically want everything. Today was the first day I actually thought about breaking the sugar fast just to munch on a bar of chocolate. I didn't, don't worry...
What is your go-to activity after a long run day? Or do you rest completely?
Sometimes I'll go for a light jog, otherwise something like yoga or a walk is usually plenty for me. Doing nothing ends up being worse for me!
