Fuelled by Chocolate…Literally.
|February 4, 2012||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
This is how I fuelled yesterday for today’s race:
Oh wait, and a peanut butter sandwich cookie too:
Oh, add a vanilla/choc cupcake and a mini blueberry streusel loaf cake to that as well for good measure…
These two I actually gave to my bro, who has come down from uni for the weekend! He split a bit of each with me though and after that I kinda wished I’d kept them for myself
They are from London’s first vegan bakery…Ms Cupcake!
The PB cookie sandwich and the chocolate cupcake were AMAZING. They definitely got the ratio of frosting to cupcake perfectly for me… it was like 5:1!! So so good!
P.S. I wasn’t asked to review this place or anything. I just loved it so much I had to tell you all about it! And make you drool and want to eat cupcakes too.
This morning I woke up excited to race! I tried having a fruit smoothie this morning…still didn’t work! I always have stomach problems pre-race, and I’m trying to find SOMETHING that will stay down well! It’s never a problem for me with longer races or runs, but anything short and intense like cross country (or future track races) gives me problems. My next thing to try is plain white rice. Not fun, but it’s simple and should hopefully work! Dathan Ritzenhein has it before he races too, and he swears by it!
Maybe it will help me run a 12.56 5k like he can!
It was such a GREAT race! My hardest one yet for sure, but so awesome! When the results are up, I will do a full recap, but I’ll tell ya now that I am through to finals! It’s down in Somerset, and I am SO THRILLED to make the team! At the start of the year I honestly never even thought I’d make it through to this race, let alone to the National finals! (<— There are two different National XC races, and now I’ll be running both!) So happy right now!
Oh yeah, and it was SNOWING whilst we were racing! I went numb haha! But I did think it made me run faster in an effort to finish and be able to throw on some layers!
Oh, and I thought I’d share something one of my pastors (who is also a runner) emailed to me right before my race, and it really inspired me!
Anyway, FULL day recap to come tomorrow hopefully as soon as the results are posted! I know my place, but not knowing my time is killing me!! Patience is not one of my virtues
Tell me about something YOU want to achieve! I will cheer you on!
What has been the best bit of your weekend so far? Race, obviously! And cupcakes of course!
Have you ever run in the snow before? Today was the first time that I’ve run whilst it was actually snowing, and tomorrow’s long run may be in the snow too! Although I don’t plan on wearing a vest and shorts this time haha!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend friends! <3
