IF: Intended to skip breakfast but felt so stiff and achey that brain needed food. Instead ate three nice filling meals then nothing after 3pm besides caffeine and Amy's addictive seeds.
Sleep: 7.75 hours in bed. Awake in wee hours (husband) and when alarm went off at 451a...I am a genius who set Hop's alarm for 630a but turned on MY alarm! Dozed from then til 6a. Felt okay but planned an afternoon nap to make it to end of races.
Body: Stiff and achey first thing. Outer right shin tight. I have learned that morning aches tend to go away so I paid little to no attention. And they had totally disappeared by the time I was meeting Lisa. However, glutes & hams are NOT HAPPY after the Prowler session. Walked several small hills in second half of run for just that reason.
Brain: Doing well. Worried about having morning cravings or overeating but I was just fine, probably because the run was going to be with my favoritest running partner of all time. And it was as wondertastic as expected! As was brunch with Amy. Did not have time for an afternoon nap, but I was able to just kick back and relax with my kits & a book.
Food prep: Pizza egg bake: Saute a couple onions with your fat of choice (I used coconut oil and whatever grease was in the pan) - do not skip this step, it is totally worth it! Dice the following into a 9x13 baking pan: big can black olives, container fresh mushrooms, green & yellow bell peppers, package turkey pepperoni (perfectly acceptable to eat one serving while doing so). Add your carmelized onions. Chop a bunch of fresh basil leaves and sprinkle on top. Crack a dozen eggs into a bowl, mix, pour over top (could also use egg whites). Bake at 350* for an hour. Cut into 12 squares and divide into containers for the week's breakfast & snacks. Smear a little tomato sauce on top for extra flavor. Or salsa. Or cheese, if you can. Freezes & reheats just fine!
