Food....or should I say nutrition is a good thing when we are training for some big event. At least, that's what I hear and what I've experienced. I am going to start kind of late in my marathon training to blog what I eat on my long run Saturdays, however, not every Saturday will be a "long" run. For instance, next Saturday is a 3 miler after our 6 miler yesterday, but I still intend to blog about the food I eat prior to my run, the food I eat after my run, my habits pre and post run as well and my running stats. Doing this will help me know what's good and what's not during my training and it will also keep me honest about doing the right thing.
Here you go:

After my post-run meal, I took a quick wash off shower, threw on my PJ's and took a 45 min. power nap. Ahhhh, feeling absolutely refreshed and ready to take on the rest of the day. I felt fantastic after this run today. Even though it was quite humid early this AM, it was a good run. However, I did have one odd feeling in the 3rd mile of my run. I had a weird twinge on the inside of my left knee. It only happened when I'd run and almost put impact on my tip-toe. After walking a bit, it would subside. I iced it afterwards and it actually felt fine the rest of the day.
So there we are, 2 blogs in one evening....yahoooo!
Good night to all!
