Thursday Thoughts

Thank you all for your opinions yesterday, but most of you chose wrong. :) Yes the Echos are more comfortable but I just can't part with $130 for a pair of shoes I'm not going to be wearing every day. The Echos looked great on the rack, but on my feet they kinda looked like witch shoes. So, I went with #1 from DSW.



Boy my calves look huge!!!

Now on with Thursday Thoughts. There hasn't been a whole lot of running/triathlon talk on the blog this week. Let's change that. As I alluded to earlier this week I'm taking steps to improve my diet to be able to train strong and not get sick as much. Today I got serious, or at least that's what Coach said, as I drank an Ensure with high protein after my run. And to my surprise it didn't suck.

What do you do, nutritionally, to aid with recovery?

Or for you non-runners/triathletes out there, what do you like to eat before or after a workout?

What flavor ensure? I tried the strawberry and it was beyond fucking nasty. Yep. I sported the WHOLE f word right there.

I had milk chocolate which I think tasted like liquid pudding.

with high protein? Interesting.. I've been purposely drinking the ones NOT listed as such, so as to get the 4:1 carb:protein ratio. I'd heard that was good for recovery. But I guess the extra protein wouldn't hurt!

first thing I have once I get in the door after a run, is a big glass of chocolate milk. Then usually followed by some peanut butter toast once I cool down a bit.

I always start my day with a bowl of breakfast cereal from the High Protein package I receive from Serial Cereals. That way I can get my runs and my protein without spending so much time analyzing nutritional facts at the grocery store.

i'm with erin. chocolate milk, usually within 15 min of the workout and a decent meal within an hour.

I love the shoes you picked! The ruffles are very girly and cool!
