Today, I wanted to show you what I ate in the three days leading up to my 25k. (It was actually 17 miles and I knew this going into it.) I had a stomach bug and my stomach was just weird for several days after. So what you're seeing isn't my "normal" food, just what I was able to stomach. The goal was to eat carbs and calories so I could go into the race feeling strong.
I'll be showing you absolutely everything I ate and drank MINUS water. I did not include how much water I drank because there's no way I would remember to track all of that!
I'm not sure this will be interesting but I took all the pictures so I'm writing the post!
**Note: Normally I would eat A LOT more food in a day than what is pictured.**
I didn't workout today, so I got to "sleep in" until 7!
This was the first day since being sick that I felt like I could drink some coffee. Woohoo!
I am a huge fan of these Greek yogurts now and am going to continue eating them.
Wendy's! After a stomach bug, the first think I crave when I finally get hungry is fast food.
Yeah, a little addicted to yogurt. This was my dinner.
That Wendy's really held me over.
I ran 5 miles this morning! See, that Wendy's was good for something!
I didn't drink this whole thing, it merely represents that I had iced coffee in the morning.
Same breakfast as the day before.
Italian wedding soup and crackers from Giant for lunch.
I am also loving these cottage cheese/fruit cups! I will be enjoying these from now on as well.
Paul made me a turkey burger and roasted cauliflower for dinner. Yum!
No workouts in the morning, but we did hike about six miles total throughout the day.
Applesauce!? Who am I?
After hiking, we got stuck in traffic and I needed a snack before dinner.
Cream of crab soup. It was divine.
Fish tacos and rice. I only had one taco, about half the rice, and none of the chips.
Just for fun, here's what I had before the race and after the race on Saturday!
Make your own waffle at our hotel, orange juice, coffee.
7oz Cheeseburger and fries from Blue Mountain Brewery. I ate most of the fries.
After looking at all of these pictures, I realized I ate a lot of burgers! I do love burgers and french fries. Why are they so good together?
