Carb Load Thursday!

I can't believe I only have one more day to go! The morning started off with this wonderful email...
Exciting!!! Especially since I have the great exit row window seats with extra leg room (my knees are very grateful).

Today was all about...

I was told that the best day to carb load was 2 days before your marathon/half-marathon (as opposed to the day before). Hence I did my carb load today. What a struggle! Have you ever tried carb loading when your best options are hospital cafeteria food?

My breakfast choice was granola cereal with almond milk, grapefruit and coffee (yes I know...I needed to do better).

So this was my lunch choice: Spaghetti with marinara sauce and a grilled chicken breast...
Yup, it tastes as good as it looks people.

Then there was time for a snack before I left work (there should always be time for a snack)...
Between carb loading and all the water I've been drinking there is absolutely no more room in my tummy today. But sadly I still have to eat something "carb-rich" for dinner. I'm still thinking about what that will be. Any suggestions?

Today is my last physical therapy session!!! I'm glad I have come to the end of that road. I have a great therapist and the entire rehab team is wonderful, but the weekly co-pays? not fun.

I plan for an early bedtime tonight because my flight is at 6:30am tomorrow. Hopefully I will be able to fall asleep. I have been trying to go to sleep early and get extra rest this week but it really hasn't been working. Most of the nights have been like this...

Happy Thursday! When you hear from me next I will be in CHICAGO!!!!!

Is anyone doing a race this weekend? Any fun training plans or rave runs? 
What's your favorite carb loading food?
