Just checking in to say that despite the snow, ice, and wind this morning, I completed my 18 miler in Michigan! It certaintly wasn’t my fastest (I averaged an 8:10 min/mile) but given the slippery sidewalks and the unpacked snow, I’m happy to have been able to run at all!
Before I left this morning I had half a piece of toast with peanut butter and chia seeds, a dried fig, and half a coconut water.
I also had two dried figs while running for fuel. They seemed to work just as good as dates. I’m definitely preferring dried fruit to shot blocks right now.
When I got home I threw together a quick yogurt mess (we’re heading out soon) with a honey Chobani, pumpkin spice granola, honey nut o’s, coconut, a chopped fig, and peanut butter.
I also snacked on some cereal because the yogurt bowl was not enough.
Off to Ann Arbor for the Michigal-Illinois game, GO BLUE!
