Shorts and a tee this morning, I cannot hate on it. Now for light so I don’t need my headlamp! After yesterday’s much needed slog, my legs felt pretty recovered today. Still not at 100% but they will be soon. Taper is great.
Today I have the day off from CTB, and am meeting my coach for dinner at Strong Hearts! I am so excited! I have never really had a race strategy meeting, I mostly just do it, so this will be fun. Of course, I have a list of things to talk with him about that aren’t running, we are best friends after all 🙂
I went to Ten Forward Cafe twice last week. The first was when I had my aha moment and my first day recommitted as a vegan. I got the buffalo quesadilla that came with coleslaw. This is the best thing I’ve eaten in a while.
Then, on Monday, I was craving a scone (I’m back hard with those) and wanted to tell the owner Tammie that it was while sitting in her cafe that I recommitted. I always loved it when people told me they started thinking about the animals more or ate less meat because of me. She looked happy (albeit exhausted from pulling three double shifts. Maybe I should offer to help?)
Chocolate chip cherry scones oh my God. It was like a chordal cherry! I also love fun colored foods so…
He told me last night that he is being invited to speak at a Rochester Vegan meet-up about a documentary on vegan athletes. He is a pretty incredible runner, so I have no doubt he’ll nail it. He invited me to come watch, which I most definitely will do. The movie looks pretty great.
I slept so well last night. The temperature was perfect. I didn’t use my space heater and it was cool enough for blankets. I had a dream that the cops came a told me I couldn’t park my van where it was. That was frightening! I hope that never happens! I was able to eat dinner outside last night for a bit before it started to drizzle. I can’t wait for summer!
I saw this comic about almond butter a few days ago, and I couldn’t agree more 😛
I wanted to show my van kitchen. This is it. I have a bin of things to make oatmeal, then a plastic tub of Clifbars, Bad Ass Vegan cookies and a few miscellaneous fruit and nut bars. All my other food is from CTB or I treat myself to lunch on my days off. My breakfast bin contains quick cooking oats, maple syrup, cinnamon and a blend of chia/flax/wheat germ that I mixed together and add a quarter cup or so to my oatmeal. I then have two buckets, one of PB and one of sunflower butter on the floor (the 7lb ones I bought a month or two ago) which I put on top.
Breakfast: oatmeal with banana and peanut butter
Running: 70 minutes
