Week 11: Nutrition plan, and a cool version of one of my favorite songs
Mon 8/6 3 miles.
Tue 8/7 4 1/2 miles.
Sat 8/11 12 miles at Croft with Carroll. Again, I hit the wall. This business is getting old. I decided that I would develop a nutrition plan the same way I have a training plan. The training comes naturally, the eating does not. I had eaten a huge amount of pasta on Friday evening, and two servings of oatmeal Saturday morning. Still, within a few miles, I was hungry. I ended up eating 6 gels in less than two hours.
So I came home and made a pile of rice, and cooked up some black beans. I’ll make certain to take enough food for lunch, lots of whole grains, and plenty of calories. I should be eating around 3000 calories a day--yogurts in the fridge at work for snacks, bagels for breakfast, food, food, food.
from Dairy Ridge: Palmetto to TC's to that lake trail to Lake Johnson Connector to Palmetto
Total: 19 1/2 miles in 3 runs.
Haven't heard this version of this song before, one I sang all week.
"It balances on your head just like a mattress on a bottle of wine."
