|Saturday Night Dinner Club before it got Messy :)|
Funny thing is I felt like that Friday too only this time I couldn't blame it on the wine and sun. I got up went for a run, had a GREAT one and ran a PR for the 5km and then jogged another 3km. I came home high on endorphins but by noon was going downhill fast. I was nauseous and tired. Luckily, Ryan had the day off and I indulged in a nap and spent the afternoon reading and was in bed with the kids at 7:30! The only thing that has made me feel good is eating carbs! I am practically on an oatmeal, and PB, Honey, and Bannana Sandwich diet LOL. I've never run a marathon before so I don't know what's normal, but I feel like my body right now is really sensitive and Fri I emptied my tank on that run. Sunday well that's pretty obvious a night of wine and a day of sun caught up with me. But I do think I need to fuel up those glycogen stores this week with good complex carbohydrates. I need to stick to "light" workouts this week. I plan on two short runs 5-6km, some yoga, maybe a light pump class. No crazy Katie workouts this week! I hope to get those two short runs in during the heat of the day to acclimatize myself a bit to running in hotter temps in case its hot out next Sunday.
This coming week will be about rest and nourishing myself getting ready for the BIG DAY SUNDAY....HOLY CRAP I AM REALLY GOING TO RUN A FREAKING MARATHON!!!
