Ran in Newport, Back Bay Loop
flat with a few hills, warm out, no music
Gotta make this short and sweet because my computer is about to get thrown over a cliff. I’m gonna go buy a new one today. Or kill the internet, one or the other.
Any laptop suggestions for a turdy blogger like me?
Crappy pre-run fueling….
Dang you Costco, trying to buy my love with your oversized red velvet cupcakes. Each cupcake has 760 calories. EACH CUPCAKE.
I ran the first 5 miles around 7:45 pace, and then the next 5 slowed to around 8ish pace. I picked it up for the last 3 and finished with a 7:23 mile. This was a really hard run for me; I’m definitely sucking wind and out of shape cardiovascular-wise.
Redeemed myself with a post-run textbook recovery: protein and spinach shake within 30 minutes of run. I used 2 scoops of CLICK Mocha, a handful of spinach, some leftover coffee instead of water, ice and a small spoonful of Chia seeds.
Drunk while stretching, foam rolling and icing:
Not stuff I want to do at all. I’d rather come home, pop open a Diet Coke and sit on the couch comatose which checking People and DON. But I know it’s stuff I need to do and I always feel better physically after doing some post-run recovery.
This post is about stretching, injury prevention, recovery, etc.
