Okay, I guess if I’m not ready by now, I won’t ever be ready! I have all of my stuff packed for Utica and made a checklist of things to bring:
- Running top
- Running shorts
- Ipod armband
- Energy gels/bloks
- Peanut Butter and Bagel (for breakfast)
- Coconut water
- Clif Z Bars (for snack)
- Cold meds
- Camelback (I think I’m going to wear it, just to keep my tissues in it because I may have to blow my nose a million times during the race…eww.)
- A fan (for sleeping comfortably!)
I think that may be it..besides general toiletries and such.
Breakfast this morning was a protein breakfast cookie!!!
In it was: 1/2 cup of raw oats, 1/2 mashed banana, 1/2 scoop of brown rice chocolate protein powder, 1/2 tsp of maca powder, 1 tbsp of almond butter, 2 tbsps of almond milk, and a sprinkle of chocolate chips. The flavor of the protein powder kind of took over the cookie, but other than that it was still pretty good. I need to find a better non-whey, non-soy protein powder that won’t cost me an arm and a leg.
I haven’t been too hungry lately, probably because I haven’t been exercising this week because of my cold, but for snack I had a raspberry Chobani with some chia seeds sprinkled in.
Lunch consisted of more carbs! Pancakes! Whole wheat banana, chocolate chip pecan pancakes to be exact! So good! But a little bit on the sweet side, even for me!
Dinner will probably be some cold cereal, or something light like that.
I will leave you with some funny pictures of my weirdo cat. How weird is he?
Okay, I’m off, wish me luck! 🙂
