Sunday was a rest day and I was still not feeling well, and didn’t seem to have much of an appetite. Usually I am really hungry the day after a long run, so this was kind of strange. Not sure if maybe I did a good job of refueling on Saturday so my body had regulated itself better than usual? Anyway, I found myself not really in the mood for most of my usual food. However, the day did start out with coffee…
I wasn’t hungry when I woke up but after a little bit knew I should have something so I made a smoothie. I think this had bananas, berries, spinach, peanut butter, protein powder, and orange juice.
No morning snack or second breakfast which is really strange for me, and for lunch we decided to get carry-out from Atwater’s. I decided on a grilled cheese and salad because that’s what sounded good.
I had a few pieces of watermelon in the afternoon while I was getting it ready to bring as a snack for work the next day. (Purchased at Trader Joe’s!)
Dinner was crock pot lasagna– I guess I was really craving comfort food all day! I updated my post for this recipe with some clearer pics and an easier-to-follow recipe so check it out if you are interested: Crock Pot Turkey Veggie Lasagna
If we had any ice cream in the house I probably would have had that for dessert, but we didn’t and I was way too tired to go get anything. So I settled for a glass of wine and an early bedtime!
Not a very exciting day of eating, but at least it was a little different from the meals I eat everyday🙂 It is very confusing to be in week 4 of marathon training and to have less of an appetite than usual. I am sure it will come back with a vengeance though!
Do you eat differently on a rest day/the day after a long run/when you’re not feeling well?
What are some of your favorite comfort foods?
