Emily and I have plans for a long run this morning. [Can you believe my half was just last weekend!?!?! Feels like it was weeks ago!] But going to bed last night, I chose sleep over more time for digestion, so I hope my stomach will be OK!
I woke up at 7, which gave me 1.5 hours to eat and digest. Perhaps not enough, but we’ll see! I was hungry for more than a banana, and after yesterday’s sports nutrition lecture, I figured more rather than less would be better for my energy on the run.
I decided breakfast should be:
- Blended for expedited gastric emptying
- High in liquids for hydration
- Rich in carbohydrate for [hopefully i have enough time!] glycogen storage
Enter the convenient smoothie!
- 1 medium banana
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 3/4 scoop Vega Vanilla Chai
- 2 tbsp raw quick oats
- Handful of ice
I topped it with a handful of Nature’s Path but it all sunk to the bottom!! Great example of density for ya 😉
And my blob of Maranatha Dark Chocolate Almond also sunk. ‘Twas a fun treasure to find!
I had some Golden Moon tea on the side – brrr!
I’m loving mixing the flavors!!
My sister and Matt are visiting from Boston and we’re going out to brunch after I put these miles behind me 🙂
