Yesterday’s tour was a ton of fun.
Even though it was a great time, the conditions made it the most difficult tour to date. Not to mention I ran the entire tour (6 miles) plus 5 extra miles to and from the tour with some errands thrown in with three bottles of water, three t-shirts, and other goodie-bag supplies in my running pack. It had to have been like 10 or 15 pounds worth of stuff easily.
Did I mention it was freezing with 30 mph wind gusts?
Those were some of the hardest 11 miles I’ve had in a while, and needless to say my back is sore today from carrying all that!
I’m resting up today in preparation for another week of tours. Already have three scheduled.
With all these miles I’ve been putting in, I’ve had no trouble staying fueled. Especially with the discovery of my new favorite food blog:
Chocolate Covered Katie is the bomb. I’ve literally been making a recipe of hers every night. Basically, I can’t keep enough chickpeas, cocoa powder, and coconut butter in the pantry. My favorites so far are her fudge babies and chocolate brownie batter dip. So delicious and full of wonderful, healthy calories and fat!
