In the mayhem of Cyber Monday (ahem, did you know all my services are on sale for the first time ever until Tuesday?!), I've been pretty preoccupied with ONE thing:
My totally, completely free online class this January
You guys, public speaking and working with groups is my greatest passion. I just ADORE teaching. And I am so, super psyched to offer this totally free class to you guys this winter. I want next year to be the year of peaches & PRs for alllll my readers, ya know what I mean?? (.. you prob don't know what I mean, but that's my silly way of saying I want us all to grow muscle and run really fast in 2019!!)
And I've gotten two very popular responses:
1. I'm always hungry during training - HALP!
2. How can I fuel my workouts?!
Now I'm struggling to choose between these two topics. And in the meantime, I'm going to start sharing more of my own personal fueling journey with you guys.
This Saturday I did a 12 mile run in preparation for the Ted Corbitt 15k this December 8th. My pre-run fuel was delicious and settled in my stomach very well. You guys should know that I actually have a really delicate constitution. My stomach is SUPER picky about pre-run fueling. I actually can't even drink coffee before a long run! So ya know all my fueling recipes are being tested on an extremely temperamental stomach.
Let me know if you try this and how it settles in your stomach. Remember that ideally we should be fueling 2 hours before a run and taking in 4 times the amount of carbohydrate to protein!
Happy Miles Smoothie

*Powdered PB is actually a better option but since I did not have any on hand I just used a tablespoon of nut butter
