My burrito was just okay. It definitely wasn’t anything compared to the amazing burrito we had recently at the Mr. Taco Food Cart. THAT burrito was delicious! The Palapa burrito was just kind of bland. I liked the guacamole but the cheese was kind of…weird…and there was too much rice in it.
I forget what this dessert is called but it’s yummy: cinnamon and honey? Sign me up! After that they headed to a movie and Michael and I headed home. I also got to wear my new Portland Century t-shirt:
All week long I’ve woken up each morning with a growling, insane hunger in my belly. I’m not sure if it’s the aftermath of doing the Portland Century but dang. The moment my eyes open my stomach feels hollow and empty. I haven’t been eating more than normal this week because the rest of the day I don’t feel EXTRA hungry…just first thing in the morning. This is a new feeling. After I ran Hood to Coast last year (my last big event) I had an insatiable hunger for about 10 days after Hood to Coast. It was like I was a bottomless pit that could not be satisfied. I haven’t noticed that with the Century this year. Speaking of Hood to Coast, this year is the 30th anniversary! Good luck to everyone that’s running it this week!
A well-deserved rest day. I’d had a recovery swim and a recovery ride. Now rest! And food. Lots of food. Dinner was back to the normal foods: healthy chicken, a salad and steamed veggies.
QUESTION: How to you curb the hunger after a big event?
