The Day After

Current status: Waddling like a penguin.  At least it’s a bird walk…right?  Like birder like bird?  No?  Ok…  But thank you so much to everyone for all the encouragement and great comments on my SD Marathon Race Recap!

It’s been a rough day having to get up to my second story apt and jumping out of a lifted doge ram truck for work.  It’s been interesting to say the least…

Anyhow, I started my morning at my parents and with the smoothie I’d been wanting all weekend long! It was a normal vega protein powder, berries, spinach and water topped with cereal.  I also had a muffin on the side because I was still hungry…my post race hunger is slowly starting to come back.  And when I say slow, I mean slowly. I think my stomach shrunk to the size of a tennis ball.  Odd.

I made guacamole for Whit for some breakfast and actually ended up eating lots of chips with a bit of guac before we hit the road to get me back to my place and go to work.  Yep, no day off after a marathon for me! I munched on some trail mix on the way home but my belly was feeling off so I didn’t have much.  Hate that feeling.

I did a watch for about 5 hours before getting back home and finally feeding myself something other than trail mix, and that wasn’t sweet. I swear, almost two packs of gu chomps for that race has me running away from sweet stuff!  So all I wanted for dinner was savory and my hummus, egg and lettuce wrap hit the spot. I didn’t eat the mango and instead had another tortilla with hummus and a some cucumber slices because I still didn’t want the sweet.  Blech.

I snacked on some carrots afterwards and a handful of cheerios before getting ready to call it a night. 

I looked up my race pictures to show you all but they’ve suddenly disappeared and can’t be found.  I actually like them a lot too!!!!  Hopefully they’ll be back up tomorrow.  Definitely something I might buy!!!

    Congrats on the race girl! You should be sooo proud of yourself. I think anyone's body would be a bit off after running all those miles. Take it easy for a few days, hopefully you'll be back to normal

    I go through phases where I crave salty over sweet… and then I assume something must be terribly wrong with me.

    100% identify with the penguin walk. My co workers wanted to know what was wrong with me. I can only imagine you were feeling it like twice as much as me!
