Only one more sleep to go until my race! Yes, I have already made my checklist for tomorrow morning and decided what to eat and wear. Yes, I actually did this about 4 days ago in excessive preparation. A girl's got to be prepared! Today will be be my last day of Gluten-Free eating. After the half tomorrow I just want to be able to eat whatever strikes me as tasty, and not have to worry about ingredients. I'll do a recap for this week's eating in a few days to let you know how the experience affected my body. Today's GF lunch was a spinach salad with brown rice and some grapes, with a bunch of edamame on the side. Yum!
So, after two days of bending over in the sun painting, my hamstrings KILL. Slightly worried about hills tomorrow but I'm foam rolling like it's my job so should be A-OK by the morning. Yesterday I was all sunscreened up, being very careful not to get burnt. Except I forgot one part. Every time I bent over, my shirt would rise up and over the course of the day, it turned bright red. Seriously looks like a nice sunburned tramp stamp. Oh so sexy.
I hosted a giveaway this week and while it was awesome, I was still sad that only one person got to win. Today, 20 of you get to win something! Jiwok is giving away a month long membership to 20 of my readers. What's Jiwok? Basically, it's like having a personal running coach in your iPod. You can have running workouts tailored to your goals--whether that's losing weight, starting to run, or training for a marathon. The best part is that you can choose to use your OWN music, or you can have them make a playlist for you based on the style of music you like best. The voice of your coach merges with the music. Anyone can try it out for free, but only 20 of you can win a whole month's worth of workouts on the house. All you have to do is like Jiwok on Facebook and tell them Gourmet Runner sent you. The first 20 will win!
How do you prepare for a race?
Lots of foam rolling and carbo-loading in the form of jellybeans! I'm trying to organize everything as much as possible so tomorrow when I'm up at 4:30 everything is smooth sailing.
Do you listen to music when you run? Ever used a product like Jiwok before?
I like listening to music at the gym, but I'm so uncoordinated I can't handle having an iPod when I run. I'm that clumsy, people.
** Update at 4:35 PM Eastern Time--it's not too late to win, there are still 7 chances left! Keep liking them on Facebook! I'll update once all 20 are gone! **
