|Picture perfect Monday dinner|
The big bowl of chili with some chewy baguette was a perfect dinner for a cool Monday evening. And since I had a serious case of the day after long run hunger (or runger?), it was perfectly filling as well.
Post run hunger I can do something about- but post long run sleeplessness I can't seem to. Lately I'm finding that the nights after my long runs, even though I'm exhausted, I just can't get to sleep. Sunday involved getting up decently early, running 14 miles, and chilling out for the rest of the day (since it was POURING rain thanks to a little bit of Irene's weather blowing our way). I was tired when I got up and tired when I went to bed but I just couldn't fall asleep...very frustrating.
Does anyone else have trouble sleeping after long runs (or other sports)?
Any meals that you're looking forward to making now that summer is almost over?
