Another for "what not to do while marathon training"
|Perfect for yesterday's run|
Of course I write yesterday about how busy I am and likely lack of writing. I think a lot stemmed from no desire to write after too much writing for school! That was short lived, I guess it took one post of complaining and a good run out in the sun to snap me back. I still may disappear, but I am reading other blogs and keeping updated on others.
Yesterday I discovered one more thing to add to my list of Things not to do while training for a marathon...Get dental work done. Not that it is fun anytime but I forgot about the food restrictions afterwards and did not plan ahead. Between Tuesday and Wednesday I have ran a total of 26.2 miles (unintentionally) and did 1 hour strength work. I eat lunch and head to my appointment figuring a snack afterwards, wrong! After the right side of my face is numb up to my eye and the left side never took (I decided to tough it out ad go wihtout, the needle was much worse) I was ready to go, drooling all the way home.
My eating restrictions for 24 hours: No hot, No cold, Not chewy, No sticky, No hard, No crunchy foods and only eat with middle teeth, have you even tried this? Tough! After failing at a protein bar and realizing I lacked many foods fitting the above descriptions I started mixing and discovered a pretty good apple pie tasting treat...
1/4 cup applesauce
1 tsp cinnamon
Sprinkle of nutmeg
1 scoop protein powder
1 tbsp coconut or almond flour
1/2 cup oats
Mix together and microwave 3 minutes. Top with nut butter.
6 more hours and I can eat again! Today is the day I am near my favorite gluten free bakery so I think this calls for a yummy treat.
