Run + Pilates = Bedtime
I am happy to report that I did my run and then went right into Pilates! I took 1 caffeinated Shot Block before my run and 2 non-caffeinated right after my run/before Pilates. It definitely was hard, but I feel really good. Again, I can see how much stronger I am already. You can check out my 'Mile a Month Training' for the details of tonight's run.
The synopsis? 2 miles in 28minutes and 17 seconds, with chunks of running at 4.5mph.
My 2 other runs this week (tomorrow and Saturday) will be focused on speed and endurance. It's time to add in an incline, so one of them will be with a small incline.
Post-workout dinner: I had an entire cucumber with salad dressing (a lame vegetable I know, but it was all that looked appetizing to me), some chicken and some potatoes. My appetite just isn't there after such exertion, but I know tomorrow I will be HUNGRY. Hopefully I can keep it in check with lots of water, a protein and fiber packed breakfast and good snacks throughout the day. We are eating out tomorrow night (a new Thai restaurant, yum!) so things could get dicey by the end of the day.
Do you find the day after an intense workout you are ravenous?
When I was training for the Wine and Dine 1/2, my appetite was insatiable the day after my distance runs.
