Pre- race day! In translation, really means, busy/nervous day. I started off my day with my usual breakfast smoothie and headed straight down to the river to practice my swim. After the swim, a short bike, then a drive to the mandatory athlete meeting and check in. On the way, my favorite snack that lives in my purse in case of emergency...
Artisans has a handful of options for these nut butters including walnut, cashew, almond and a few others. They're a great "back-up plan."
After we finished athlete check in, we headed to lunch at a local restaurant in downtown Windsor called Kin. I had a burger with bacon wrapped in lettuce and sweet potato tots (no ketchup since that had high fructose corn syrup in it). The sweet potato tots are definitely not RESTART legal, but I'm following the RESTART rule today knowing that starchy carbs are exactly what I need for tomorrow. Here was lunch...
Dinner was back at Pub Republic in Petaluma where I enjoyed a house salad with roasted beets, tomatoes and olive oil and vinegar. For the main course, I had brick oven chicken and fingerling potato (a RESTART modification), bacon and Brussels sprout hash.
Before bed, I had a mug of hot mint tea and tried to get some rest before tomorrow's big day. Tomorrow, I will blog my food, but it will definitely not be detox legal. However, for anyone out there interest in what a nutritionist eats for 70.3 miles, there will be no secrets. Off to bed!
