Lately I really have been seeing a difference in my running based on what I eat. On days that I eat really healthy making sure I get enough protein, good fats and carbs – I feel good the next day on a run. The days I splurge and eat whatever I want(whatever = crap) I feel sluggish the next day.
My latest obsession is Stonyfield Farm Organic Greek Yogurt. It packs a whopping 23 grams of protein per cup which is just about 1/2 of the protein most people need in a day. It’s also lower in lactose than regular yogurt so my stomach is appreciating the switch. I also thought it was interesting that you can use it as a substitute in cooking for cream, cream cheese, sour cream and ricotta. I might just have to test out some of the recipes on their site.
I had another good long run this morning and slowly feel like I am learning my way around! My shorts tan is getting worse and my stomach is the color of a sheet of computer paper.
