During marathon training, being hungry 24/7 makes sense. During marathon recovery, not so much. Yet I feel famished ALL. THE. TIME. I'm hungry within 20 minutes of eating. It's getting ridiculous.
One day last week, I totally let myself eat everything in sight. Including two and a half donuts. One of which was a HUGE maple bar. And the half was a Boston cream donut, oozing with creamy vanilla pudding filling. I managed to consume a salad for lunch but followed it up with a salted caramel cookie as big around as a softball. So when I saw this, I felt a little better about my insane day of eating:
I can't decide if it's because I am doing so much cross training, including some workouts that I haven't done in a while, which is shocking my body and has revved up my metabolism or if my body has just decided it likes food being shoveled into my mouth non-stop. I'm hoping it's the first.
Last week I did the elliptical several times, had my sad little 4 mile run/walk on Tuesday, threw in some 30-Day Shred and T25 workouts, and of course had a few rounds of 8-minute abs. I kind of like having my glutes and shoulders sore, places that are rarely sore because I am a creature of habit and usually do the same workouts over and over and over and over. I have also enjoyed the variety. I assume I will eventually miss running and start jonesing for my next run, right?!?
In the meantime, I took advantage of having a Saturday off from running and enjoyed a morning at the temple sharing a special event with two very special friends. Then we celebrated with a delicious lunch at La Jolla Groves that ended with this deliciousness:
