WIAW - Long Run, 3.17

As a reminder, What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW) is just a fun way to show/track what you eat/drink in any given day. For this edition, I used Sunday, March 17, 2013-- St. Patty's Day!! Though, nothing I ate was even remotely Irish. Whoops. This was the day of my long run (15 miles! Woowoo!!) and the Hubs and I took Sadie on a 2 mile walk. As always, thanks to the girl behind this operation, our host!

 Breakfast @ 8:15am (pre-long run):
Normally don't eat anything before a workout, but before long runs I always try to have something. English muffin with almond butter and strawberry jelly. I ended up only eating about 3/4 of this... just wasn't super hungry.
 Long Run Fuel (sometime between 8:30-10:30am):
Black Cherry Shot Blocks. I brought 1/2 a pack (3 blocks) on my run, but dropped one (doh!!), so only ended up having 2. First one at mile 8, second one at mile 11.
 Post Long Run Fuel Snack @ 11am:
The hubs and I took Sadie out for a walk immediately after I got back from my long run, so I had this on the walk to tide me over til I could have lunch.
Lunch @ 1pm:
Random left overs: TJ's butternut squash ravioli with marinara and 1 TJ's chicken sausage link. Random, but delicious.
Snacks @ 3 and 4:30pm:
Don't judge.I was hungry! Trail mix (aka: almond, mini-marshmallows, chocolate chips, and raisins) and air-popped pop corn. All demolished while watching far too many episodes of Dawson's Creek on Netflix Instant.
Dinner @ 6:30pm:
 Cheddar chicken jalapeno cilantro burgers on a low-fat bun. SOOOO good!!!! Had a sweet potato (with brown sugar and butter) and peas on the side. Delicious dinner.
Dessert @ 8pm:
Teddy Grahams. You can never go wrong with Teddy Grahams. Oh, and you bet your ass that handful was followed by like 10 more handfuls. Duh.  
See-- nothing St. Pat's related. In fact, the closest thing is peas beacuse they're green. And, yes- I am part Irish. #fail #whoops


  1. Hmmm. That ravioli looks good. I actually saw some ravioli at Sam's Club the other day that was shaped and colored like green Leprechaun hats and yellow pots of gold. Lol. So strange :)

    1. It wasn't as good as it looks, but still tasty. The butternut kind isn't the greatest. Now, their goat cheese kind--- SOOOOO GOOD.

      Haha! Gotta love random shaped pasta!

  2. I eat so much more than you after a long run so don't feel guilty about your snacks. I probably eat twice as much crap as you + a glass of wine or couple of beers....

    1. Well, don't let this day's fool you too much... I can EASILY eat more than this on a rest day, no problem. I just wasn't the hungriest that day. Now, the next day... WOOOOAH. Post-run hunger kicked in like crazy.
