WIAW: High Carb/Long Run Day

Woohoo, happy Wednesday, although I think for most of us in the corporate world it’s really our Thursday. I will take that! In honor of it being Wednesday, I want to celebrate What I Ate Wednesday by showing you what I ate on my high carb day, which was Saturday. Yes, I finally listened to my coach and enjoyed the full-on high carb day that she wants me to have once a week. Since I had a long run that morning (7.35 miles) and a concert in the evening, this was literally the perfect day for lots of food… and thank goodness for it since I didn’t get to bed until 2:30 am!

So here’s a look at what I ate!


7:30 am: 1/2 cup oats, egg whites & 1 tbsp of peanut butterimage

10:30 am: 3 Gu Chomps mid-run… my body definitely prefers the gels!image

11:00 am: Post-run shake: 1 cup cashew milk, 44 grams frozen strawberries, 1 scoop SLAP Peanut Butter protein powder, 4 grams sugar-free vanilla pudding powder (key to this shake), few ice cubes and a pinch of xanthum gum to thicken it


1:15 pm: 1 serving of Kodiak Cake Protein packed pancakes


3:45 pm: English muffin with 1.5 tbsp peanut butter


6:10 pm: 4 oz chicken with 100 grams yellow peppers


7:45 pm: 1 Big Coloassal Super Cookie Crunch protein bar. SO GOOD! These are my life. {Image Source}


12:30 am: 1 medium sized banana

imageAnd believe it or not, I feel like I didn’t eat that much, but that bar is packed with macros & 410 calories, so that bad boy was my saving grace!

What do you crave after a long run?

If you could have a guilt free high carb day, what would you choose to eat?


Current Status: Runner’s Knee


This is my current life: I seem to have this lovely little thing called “runner’s knee.” Ugh. I’ve felt just the slightest tiniest bit of pain every once in a while during a run, but it never lingered. Yesterday, however, during a mini warm-up run before completing a back workout, there was immense pain shooting…
