Trying Out Some Running Fuel

Adam’s birthday is this Saturday and we’re spending the weekend out of town so I had to shift my training schedule around a bit.

Normally I take Monday off from running and do cross training, but with my shifted schedule I did an easy 5K yesterday on the treadmill. Not the most exciting run, but I did try out a few different things:

The red things in the plastic baggy are Twizzlers and in the water bottle is a tablet of Nuun. I’m sure I looked like a crazy person munching on food while only running 3.1 miles but I wanted to see if I could eat Twizzlers while running – and I can!

When I got back from the gym Adam asked if we could watch a movie (Pacific Rim) and since it is his birthday week I had to say yes! Also, because it is his birthday week we had to split a chocolate muffin while watching the movie!


I wonder if I can cut up a muffin and bring it to the half? This is the ultimate delicious running fuel.

Today I will do a moderate 6 miles around the beach and hopefully everything will go perfectly. Last night I noticed a very small twinge in my right knee. It wasn’t painful or sore, just … thereI put some frozen veggies on it when I got home and now I am pretending it never happened.

Fingers crossed today’s run is smooth!

What is the last movie you watched? 

Do you like muffins? I’m actually more of a bagel person.

Any alternatives to Nuun besides Gatorade that you like?

    Hey, remember no one knows you’re only doing 3.1. Fuel as you have to and let all those other runners believe you’re on a 9-miler! lol
