Paleo Day 6

I'm still running off my 6 mile runner's high!! It's been quite a while since I've logged that much mileage and I'm loving it and my new shoes!! :) I'm noticing, I don't have that yucky bloated feeling anymore. I think I still have some issues with my workouts, more on that late, but I think I still need to give my body time to adjust and I think I still need to experiment with what I eat right before a run. I did buy some natural applesauce to help with my sweet cravings and I absolutely love it!! This week, I'm going to try to eat a banana and a container of the applesauce right before I run. There are some days that I do my run, immediately followed with an hour of hot yoga, so I might have to figure out something then, we'll see.

Today I took the day off from running, b/c of my "high" mileage yesterday, so I opted to do an hour of hot yoga and wow, that class kicked my a**!!!! I've never had that much difficulty, I may have been slightly dehydrated too, but wow, I didn't think I needed to eat anything before yoga, but I'm definitely second guessing that now! Live and learn, I suppose. I was never so happy to be on the last pose of the class!!

Weeked Recap

I believe I made it through my first weekend of Paleo successfully. Saturday I attempted to make something of a smoothie to start the day, but I definitely need more work in that dept. My sister and I took my dogs to the trail here in Austin and did a 4.77 mile loop. The weather was absolutely amazing. I definitely was drained at the end of the run though. I googled "Paleo eating in Austin" and found a few places to check out, so I went to "Wholly Cow Burgers" in South Austin after the trail. I ordered the Paleo Burger with a side of sweet potato fries and it was pretty good!! I think the next time I get a burger from there, I'll opt for a lettuce bun in place of the portobello mushroom bun. The mushrooms were just a bit too messy for my liking.

-Smoothie (water, 1 raw egg, strawberries, almond butter)
-Lunch at Wholly Cow (Paleo Burger, sweet potato fries
-Dinner: Steak Salad at Black Finn

-Walked the dogs at Town lake running trail: 4.77 miles

-Beef Roast slices
-Grape tomatoes
-Sliced seedless cucumber

-Pork Chops
-Spaghetti Squash, nitrate free bacon, mushrooms

-Ran 6.25 miles at the gym(!)
I did buy new running shoes too. After the surgery on my hip, my running stride isn't quite the same, so I went to get a new assessment and ended up with Saucony's!! I'm in LOVE with them!!!
