When we arrived at my Mom's place I was already hungry because I didn't get a chance to have a snack before leaving home as I had planned. A friend of ours stopped in about 1/2 hour before we planned on leaving and while he was here he got stung by a wasp...this man is allergic to some species of wasps so it was a bit of a crazy time getting his sting iced and Benadryl into him, getting his wife over with the Benadryl and then waiting to see if he was going to react. Thank God he didn't and everything was okay! but there you have it life happened and I didn't get a snack to hold me over.
At my Mom's house I was presented with a table full of junk food which I choose to not indulge in because I decided that I could survive until supper.
At supper I filled my plate 2/3 full with boiled carrots, corn, Apple Coleslaw (which I ended up making it by a Eat Clean recipe) and baked sweet potatoes. The other third was turkey meat and about 2 tbsp. of stuffing.
I did enjoy a piece of Apple Crisp with some vanilla ice cream.
I walked away from my dinner feeling so great about the decisions I made!!!!
My question to all you runners is......
What do eat before a run and how long before do you have it????
I am finding that have alot of energy when first start out on my run but by 5-6km in I am spent.
So I am thinking I need to eat something but I just don't know what is good and when to have it. All advice is appreciated!
