After Run Craving

08 Apr

For the first time since I started running and really for the first time since I started working out, I got a mad crazy craving yesterday and my 5k.  All I could think about all afternoon was a big, juicy steak (even the thought of it now makes my mouth water)!

Sorry to anyone who is now craving red meat because of this post.

I had made homemade chicken noodle soup the day before my race in hopes it would help fight off my cold (which it didn’t…why can’t it work like it does in movies?)  That was what was for dinner last night…leftovers.  This was most certainly not what my tummy was calling for, but I was not in the mood to go to the store and cook dinner, since I was tired and chilled from my race, so I ate my chicken soup. 

When that didn’t help my craving, I ate some spicy fries, hoping that would calm my screaming belly.  When that didn’t work, I went the healthy route and ate a carrot, and let me say that certainly didn’t help. 

I went to bed shortly after that convinced if I didn’t I would either eat everything in the house, or I would end up on my way to the grocery store to get steak at 10 o’clock at night. 

Guess what’s for dinner tonight!  Now if the hour of Zumba (heading there after work) could fly by so I can get home to eat, that would be awesome!

    When I’ve done a heavier than usual cardio workout, I crave red meat too. Nothing else sticks for long 🙂

    No red meat for me! I usually crave a bowl of veggie stir fry or a loaded egg white omelet. And usually I spend my entire run planning on what I will be eating after I’m done haha

      I overheard some of the runners around me talking about their meal plans for after the run.
