Do guacamole & chips count as dinner?
What about if you round it out with some cherries?
And gobble down some teddy grahams, like a child…
Gosh, how do you forget how tasty those little teddy grahams are?
Today was supposed to be a 4-mile run day, but the temps have spiked this week to the 90s (despite feeling like fall the last couple weeks), so I decided to take the day off. I think I’m going to (sort of) make up for it with a 2-3 mile easy run Friday, instead. Should be cooled down by then!
In the meantime, I will be doing some PT for my knees & core while I catch up on my many-DVRed TV shows…
I have to admit, I’m getting nervous for the 17-mile run I have this weekend. I don’t know why. I guess for 15 miles I thought, “Oh, that’s just over a half marathon, no biggie.”
But 17?! It seems sooo farrrr. I felt great after my 15-miler a couple weeks ago, so I’m trying to keep that in mind.
I definitely need to get some more fuel before the long run this weekend. I eat Shot Bloks (yummy, like giant fruit snack gummies) all the time, but I haven’t tried anything new during training yet. Since I’ll be running almost 3 hours, I’ll need more than a pack of Shot Bloks to keep me going. I tried a couple Jelly Belly Sport Beans from a runner friend a few weeks ago and liked them, but feel like I’d have to eat a LOT of them to stay fueled, which might be annoying. Gu and other gels kinda gross me out; I think the texture will be a problem for me. Any recommendations out there?
Maybe I can bring some teddy grahams… Ha!
How do you fuel during your long runs? Help!
