It’s marathon check-in time….3 months from today!!!
Total miles week of February 10th = 44.3 miles
Total miles week of February 17th = 47.8 miles
This morning I ran 22 miles, I got a later start than I had hoped but a little extra sleep did help. I started off with the usual coffee and english muffin with peanut butter and banana for my pre-run breakfast.
I was really hungry when I finished so after stretching and a shower I made my new favorite post-run creation. I will call it the Tortilla Monte Cristo.
Slice cheese into thin slices, I used smoked gouda because that is what I had but I prefer swiss. Laughing cow swiss cheese wedges are perfect and fewer calories.
Take 1 slice and turkey and layer it on 1 quarter of the tortilla. Then add a 1/3 of the cheese.
Continue cooking until the bottom is lightly browned. Then slice in half once it cooled for a minute. Add your jam for dipping and sprinkle with powdered sugar. So good!!!! It’s actually pretty healthy compared to the deep fried ones you find at restaurants and tastes pretty darn close to them. I cooked up the extra egg whites after dipping my monte cristo. I hate to waste food and it adds some more protein to my dish.
Question of the Day:
What is your favorite post-run food?
