I have a race on Sunday, it is the 9.3 mile Boilermaker and it is going to be the 7th one in a row I have run. I am so ill prepared for it though it isn’t funny. The most I have run is 6 miles and that was on Monday, I did fine and felt good but it was nice and cool (mid 70s) while I was running it. Every year the Boilermaker is in the high 80’s or low 90s. I just saw this for the forecast on Sunday, I guess at least it isn’t Monday or Tuesday!
To best prepare my body for the beating it will receive on Sunday I have been eating as healthy as possible with huge salads for lunch and fruit and yogurt for breakfast. Monday I put frozen pineapple in the yogurt, good in theory but when it started to defrost it got a little too soupy for my liking.
Tuesday I threw in some Cheerios and it was much better!
Tuesday night the boyfriend wanted to go running with me
|You all thought I was bad about pink?! Kid is nuts for green|
It was a nice thought in theory but it will be the last time I do that. He runs much faster than I do, and he is ultra competitive, so he was doing under 9 minute miles the whole way. After about a half a mile I said #%&* this and slowed down to my pace. I was feeling really bad about myself though and started to think negative thoughts which is just not healthy, so to pep myself back up I decided to just go a little further than I was planning. It made me feel better but like I said, we won’t be running buddies again.
After I cooled down I went to tackle dinner. I knew how much the boyfriend loved the Caprese Pizza I made so I decided to incorporate it into chicken so I didn’t have to have all the calories of the huge slice of bread. The end result was fantastic and something that I would make again for sure.
