Okay! I didn't exactly pull that quote straight from a nutrition article in a
magazine- but I swear that's how I feel after reading one of these great advice
giving articles. So...in general my theory is that eating is good. If you run
a lot, you probably should eat more. So when I'm hungry, I eat. That's almost
the extent of how un-complicated I try to keep my running life.
Breakfast- oatmeal and a large Starbucks sugar free non-fat latte, Snack-
banana, Lunch- sandwhich (bread, mayo, mustard, cheese, and ham), Snack- yogurt
(Orange Creme), Dinner- either chicken and veggies, tuna and veggies, or...my
most recent favorite...
On the morning of long runs.... Oatmeal, 2 slices of buttered toast, a
banana, and a small Starbucks latte (yes, caffeine before a run is AWESOME!).
During run- as much as a package of Sport Beans (really just jelly beans who
know someone I'm pretty sure), a GU packet, and maybe a fruit snack package if
I'm really out for a while. After the run---- definitely a Starbucks cupcake--
and then anything else I want!!! lol
So I seem to be doing a little better with food variety on long run weekends, but my regular during the week menu could use some amending. If you have any ideas for healthy, budget-friendly, EASY meals or snacks...please pass them along. :)
16 miles tomorrow... :)
