Ironman Goody Drawer

At work I keep one of my drawers for “goodies” I am at work 40 to 50 hours a week so I want to make sure that I have the stuff I need for recovery and prepping for my next workout. Here is currently what I have:

Emergen-C Packets
Pure-via sweetner packets
Ace bandage ( to wrap something or hold on an ice pack)
Instant oatmeal in case I need another breakfast
Powedered propel zero
Instant VIA coffee packets
And a giant bottle of ibuprofen

I bring lots of fresh food everyday and drink a lot of water from a water bottle I take with me everywhere. I start Ironman training soon so I want to make sure I am stocked up and ready.

What else do you think I need?


  1. 5 hour energy drinks for those mornings when you could have used a few extra zzzzs...

    Baby wipes in case you get to sneak in a lunch time run and want to clean up a little before getting back to work...

    Will a foam roller fit in that drawer?

  2. 5 hour energy is a great idea, also the baby wipes will be needed given what I just agreed to do last night.....will post about it later. Thanks Julie!

  3. I have almost the same things in my drawer at work. I think the only thing you are missing is some kind of nut butter. I have natural peanut butter and Justins Chocolate Almond butter. These are great to put on many things. I find they are great pick me up right before my lunch ride.-
