Otherwise known as totally sit on your ass and pig out, with the occasional healthy detail.
This is not anywhere close to an exhaustive showcase of all I have eaten in the two days following Sunday’s run. It’s more like the highlights.
I am embarking on a racing weight effort starting tomorrow, it will hopefully leave me a bit lighter, a bit healthier in the intestinal region, and faster on my feet by this fall.
When I got home on Sunday night I order a much-anticipated pizza for Jorge, his brother, and myself. We also had some really good beer. Unfortunately, I was totally crashing-tired and my stomach was pissed about the marathon, apparently, and I wasn’t really able to enjoy it. No photo….sorry.
24hrs post race. Amazing Grass Superfood and strawberry smoothie. A full pitchers worth.
34hrs post race: Whole Foods trip while Jorge was at a 16″ Softball game. Apple Pie (which was polished off by 60hrs post race), Salmon Sushi, Chicken pot-stickers, and 3 buck Chuck Pino Grigio…
After that super fancy dinner by myself, I went for a couple of beers with Jorge and another couple. He made my day by wearing the best shirt ever printed.
48hrs post race: I looooove this cereal. It’s on my list of things I cannot buy because I eat the entire package. That list is not in effect for 72hrs after a marathon. Other items on said list include: marshmallows, nutella, fudgsicles, lays original potato chips, chocolate chips, graham crackers….it’s a pathetically long list.
53hrs post race: My awesome co-worker treated me to lunch at my favorite near-work place….where there is free soft-serve ice cream (one of my top 5 favorite foods). I am not sure what possessed me to order a tuna melt…I don’t actually think that I have ever had one before. It was good. The chips were better.
Self-Serve-Soft-Serve. Look at that pull! I have many talents.
62hrs post race: Trader Joe’s Mandarine Orange Chicken, White Rice, and x2 on the beer. Yes, that is my portion size. Feel free to judge.
While I have been busy rapidly putting on a few pounds, the girls shed a few at the groomer.
And that is all. I have to admit I am really looking forward to working out tomorrow and eating clean.
