    I think i need to feed my tired legs.

    So jealous. I struggled to get 2.7 tonight, dh ran 10. Frick. 10? I remember when i could out run him.

    My brain says pizza is good recovery food, but the smart part of my brain, that's tiny, says "no pizza, bad habit". So guess i need to plan some meals.

    What does everyone else feed their tired legs? Bbq? Roast? Acorn squash? Slow cooked beans? Coconut water? A foam roller?

    @Elise4270 They are everywhere here. Snowshoe hares! They'll start turning white in a few weeks.

    Tonight I'm feeding my tired legs with ice cream.

    I don't think I run long enough to need recovery foods. Leg massage and 1-2 whiskeys are my usual. I think I need to get a foam roller and try it out.

    I could use a personal massuse... Magnesium
    and protein shake wonder twin powers, form of leg muscle (and some booty)!

    Not today - caramel fudge. But mint chocolate chip is my favourite.
