I almost thought the coast was clear. I really wanted to blog to y’all tonight that you could have your cake and eat it too…..or, in my case, go to a wine tasting and then run five miles.
It was going so well. Really. After I got home from lunch / dog hunting / wine tasting, I did some work, ate a Trader Joe’s granola bar and hit the road for five. I didn’t run at all over the weekend so I wanted to get a solid five miles in before the weather turns tomorrow. The run was good, too! Obviously now we all know my dirty little secret and I recommend you try it yourself. It makes the whole running thing a lot less painful. I promise.
When I got back, I ate dinner (Amy’s Indian meal + feta….obviously) and iced. Still was feelin’ pretty darn good at this point.
Until about 8:15 when my head started to bang. And I mean bang. I guess Cabernet Franc isn’t the best pre-run hydration method? Who knew. I tried to remedy this issue by concocting a healthy frozen confection in the VitaMix.
It was delicious….but didn’t cure my headache. All I did was puree a frozen banana with a half scoop of chocolate protein powder. I topped this deliciousness with the last teeny bit of my almond butter as well as some random graham cracker crumbs that were supposed to be the topping for a cheesecake flavored yogurt in my fridge.
Anyone who’s anyone drinks and eats out of old glass jars. Actual bowls and matching cups are highly overrated. I assure you.
Does anyone want to gently massage my temples? That would be greatly appreciated right about now. As my old boss would say, you lose with mr. booze!
