My Running Coach Delivers the Worst News I Have Ever Heard
I ran, I ran, I ran and it felt great! An easy 5K that was much needed!
I felt like everyone was talking my ear off yesterday and it felt amazing to just listen to the wind and zone out a little bit after a loooooong Monday. Ever have days like that?
Here I am running at the beach:
Haha, I wish!
I emailed my running coach as soon as I got home saying “Run went great, I really want to do another run tomorrow, maybe a bit longer?” and she said nope : (
We are taking a cautious approach and I am going to rest again tomorrow and then do around 5mi on Wednesday.
I have been planning a nice big carb filled dinner for Sat. night. In fact, I may or may not have signed up to run 13.1 just so I could carbo load. My run coach said in her race strategy email tonight “no need to carbo load.” Worst news ever.
This may be the one time that I go against my coach’s advice : )
When I told Adam he said, “Well, I just heard of this new running strategy called post-race carbo loading. It’s where I take you out for bread and pasta after your half.” This man is the best.
In case you didn’t know bread is my favorite food. All types. I am not prejudice against any breads (except rye). The seeds = gross. The actual bread part is okay!
What do you eat the day before a race?
Do you carbo load?
