So sorry I didn’t post last night! I felt really sick to my stomach for some reason and went to bed at 9:15. Crap Free Week has taught me a lot so far, but it’s definitely not making this weird illness I’ve had lately go away.
Anyway, here are my eats from yesterday afternoon/evening:
- Mid-afternoon snacks: apricots, a spoonful of PB, a handful of almonds
- Dinner: I made quinoa and kidney beans with asaparagus, but this meal did not agree with my tummy at all. I ate about 1/2 of it and then I had a piece of dry toast (against CFW guidelines). It was worth it, because that settled my stomach, and I could sleep!
I did hit the gym yesterday, and I ended up running a little bit on the treadmill to "make up" for my skipped run on Sunday. I ran 2.0 miles in 19 minutes and then I did 12 minutes on the elliptical. After some arm weight lifting, I called it quits. 🙂
Back to the present….
I was craving a basic bowl of banana oatmeal this AM… and then I went toppings crazy!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oatmeal
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: unsweetened coconut, strawberries, and almonds
The Krispy Kreme Challenge
Runners are weirdos!
From Krispy Kreme Challenge’s website…
The Krispy Kreme Challenge is an annual, student-operated race in Raleigh, North Carolina benefiting the NC Children’s Hospital. Beginning in 2004 with a mere 12 participants, the race has grown exponentially to a whopping 3,000 runners in the 2008 race and has rapidly become one of NC State University’s newest traditions.
Beginning at the NC State Belltower, each runner runs 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme store located on Peace Street in Raleigh. After downing a full dozen of the famous Krispy Kreme doughnuts, the runner must run the two miles back. All in one hour.
Did you know?….
- The dozen krispy kreme donuts each runner must eat contains 2,400 calories and 144 grams of fat (but 0 trans fat!)
- If stacked, the boxes used during the challenge would stand over 16 stories tall.
- Collectively, the Krispy Kreme Challengers will eat over a third of a ton of donuts on the day of the race.
- Runners are permitted to throw up, but it’s not encouraged, as keeping the donuts down is part of the challenge.
A dozen donuts?? Now, that’s what I call a mid-run snack!
