Where it's not even 10:00am and you've already done so much?
Do you like those days?
Ok, ok I'll stop harassing you with questions.. for now :)
Any-who back to the point (if there ever really was one)!
Saturday- bring it on!
I thought today I might reveal what a typical Friday night/ Saturday morning looks like for me... coz you know, someone might be interested! ;)
So back to my run. I've been slowly increasing my distance from 30 minutes (around 3 months ago) to now- 2 hours! And I am so surprised at the capabilities of my body. If the past few months have shown me anything, it's how strong my body really is!
Like my post-run brekky (pre-run usually features 2 pitted dates)
Heather would be proud!
1 small chopped frozen mango + 1/2 chopped banana + 1 big handful spinach + 1 big handful of kale + 3 big scoops greek yoghurt+ 1/4 cup water- whazzed!
I also didn't mention that those long distance runs also result in my downing around about 1 liter of water (and coconut water) afterwards. Good times.
Ofcourse I always (read: sometimes) plan ahead the night before to make sure my dinners are filled with carb-y goodness so I'm fueled for the ridiculously long distances I make my legs gallop and last night I simply had no other choice than to make pizza.
Pumpkin base pizza! ;)
Topped with all the veggies:
Mushrooms, brown onion, semi-dried tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, red and yellow capsicum, zucchini and eggplant.
Spread with 100% tomato paste, the veggies and some vegan cheese:
I love more than I should!
:)And because I'm a hungry monster I also had a handful of raw nuts after this amazing pumpkin base veggie-filled pizza. :D
After dinner it's rest time, bit of tv watching, bit of day dreaming, bit of... nothing (definitely one of my favourite times of the day) and then an early night- around 8:15pm-8:30pm because I'm super sleepy anyway and come Saturday morning I was out pounding the pavement at 5:15am... so sleep is good!
And that's a little look into my Friday nights/ Saturday mornings- I'm quite the party-kid hey?
What about you?
Do you exercise on Saturday? I know some people refuse to. Weekends = rest for them. For me, weekends= extra time!!
Typical long run refuel?
Do you eat lots of carbs the night before a big workout?
That's it for today folks! I hope you have a restful/ super awesome weekend, accomplish everything you need to... and of course eat some good food while you're at it! Bye! :D
