Well not really, but I do love to eat after a long run!! This morning my 4am wake up call wasnâ€™t so bad, I must have slept hard, because I thought it was 6am!
I went straight to the coffee pot, and brewed up a 1/2 cup of STRONG coffee.
I also made the usual pre long run meal, pb on ww toast and added a half of a banana(I knew I would need the extra fuel). I also had half of a home-made power bar.
Then I was for my 20 mile run with â€œFast Jillâ€. Jill ran with me for the first 13 miles, and then I was on my own for the last 7. The first 13 werenâ€™t so bad except we ran in my neck of the woods, which means LOTS OF HILLS!!! I donâ€™t mind some hills, but we did way too many! Some people asked how I could run in a brand new pair of shoes for my 20 miler, I know it wasnâ€™t the smartest thing peeps, but if you would have seen my old shoes you would have done it too! Last week I ran in brand new shoes for my 19 miler, and I survived so I thought what the heck!
I ordered my normal Asics 230â€™s, well for some reason the left inside of the shoe was rubbing my outside arch pretty bad at mile 14, I even had to stop and loosen my shoe laces. It felt like the bone was rubbing, I wasnâ€™t getting a blister just a bruise! So I guess it wasnâ€™t the best idea to run in them for the first time during a 20 mile run!!! I am going to switch out the insouls and see if that helps this week, if not I am not sure what do do I only have 3 more weeks until BOSTON!!!
The rest of my run was killer of course, but I felt good at mile 18 and pushed myself to get through it! I was so happy to be done:)

When I got home (should have taken an ice bath) I jumped into the shower and then made me a PROTEIN PACKED breakfast!
I made a Green Monster with all the ingredients above!
I also warmed up a protein pancake that I had put in the freezer from last weekend. I topped it with Naturally More PB, Fage, and some Cranberry Apple Butter!
I enjoyed my breakfast outside, in fact I am typing from my patio right now. Itâ€™s a beautiful day today!!!
