Friday, September 5

Nutrition: Really tough to figure out how & how much to eat today. No movement done today, but not going to sleep, pacing leg to begin anywhere between 1-3am, need calories & need caffeine. I think I did a decent job, other than being physically hungry by the time I was pacing (see Saturday).
  • 530a-2 eggs, bacon, 2 toast, coffee
  • 930-half salad, avocado, bottle KeVita
  • 1-summer sausage, crackers, Larabar
  • 330-yam chili, 2 toast, kind bar
  • 530-Paleo bar, applesauce
  • 730-can caffeinated Zevia
  • 830-half bag pork jerky
  • calories 2650: p 850, c 1100, f 800

Sleep: 6.5 hours of sleep, 1030p-5a, 80% quality. Much much worse, felt I was tossing & turning all night long. Bleah. Tried to nap at 4:30 but it was completely impossible, waaaay too keyed up about Brian kicking ass. 

Healthy Movement: Quite creaky when I got up, but better than expected after all of yesterday's sitting in the car & the super shitty sleep. Shivering at the aid stations was not fun. Tough to find a good balance between standing to avoid getting stiff, but sitting to save the legs & feet for pacing.

Fun & Play: Race day excitement! Nice long time to chill at the cabin after we sent Brian off at the starting line, got to listen to a Jim Jeffries one-hour special while we chilled: hilariously dirty. Thanks, Justen! Super incredibly fun watching Brian completely kicking ass. So much fun hanging out with the crew - they helped elevate this weekend pretty high on my list of "best vacations," fo sho.

Nature: After sending off our runner, I sat on the rocks by Lake Superior for a nice long time. Perfect. Beautimonious! Much time at aid stations in the lovely woods. Soaked up the nature as much and as deeply and as thoroughly as I possibly could. Winter, she nears. The bitch.
