I’m still sore from race day, but the legs are slowly coming back to life!
In the meantime I am getting a good arm workout by doing nacho-to-guacamole lifts. Extend arm, lift nacho, dip, retract arm to mouth. Repeat x1,000.Nacho night was necessary because Penelope, Catherine, and I all wanted to celebrate our races! Penelope ran the Nike Women’s half marathon on Sunday and Catherine ran the Boston marathon the other week. The three of us felt like pretty powerful ladies while we post-race partied at El Centro.And just because I can, here are more nachos.Eating pizza, nachos, and beer has been pretty fun the past couple days but I realize I can’t eat crap forever, unfortunately. So I hit up the salad bar to bring you this week’s lunch:
It’s called “buy all the veggies on sale and then buy all cheapest sources of protein at the store.” I came up with lettuce, celery, cucumber, red and yellow bell pepper… plus chickpeas ($0.79 cents), tuna ($2.50/big can), and eggs ($3.00/carton). And then I splurged on feta cheese and olives because I can’t live without them.I top a lot of my salads with this white wine vinegar/dijon combo that is sort of salty and creamy.
Since this is turning out to be a food-focused post, I’ll direct you to this recent Runner’s World article that discusses a recent study on carbohydrate deprivation and increased running performance. Sounds interesting but I think I could go for another plate of nachos. Have a good one!
