First day doing the fix AND a long run. So my plan? I bumped up my bracket to the next one. 2100-2300 calories. Which called for :
Now. Thing about me when I run marathon size distances, or a little under that..I am FAR from hungry on the day I do it. I actually am not the type of person to get to the finish line of a race and OM NOM NOM on some of the bagels and cookies they have there. I literally have to force feed myself. So the best thing for me is the light juicier foods like oranges. So I knew Sunday was gonna be hard for me.
Also, Friday is my indulge day. So I decided to put the “restaurant guide” of the 21 day fix into play.
I ran 36 km in about 4 hours and 2 minutes. It wasn’t easy. I ate up all my fuel. I wanted to drink TONS of water but tried my best not to since I didn’t bring enough electrolytes (foolish Jenn…). But got it done.
Now on to the food.
2 hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, mashed banana, 2 tsp peanut butter.
ON THE RUN FUEL
Now here comes in my dilemma. How do I count this fuel? and do I since I am burning it up as I go (Oh PS. For my non marathon running friends..when you are running for more than 2 hours we tend to bring fuel with us). I didn’t count it yesterday but I also didn’t eat all my containers since I had little appetite and I was too exhausted to eat. Anyway.. I had 4 snickers bars (yes I eat chocolate bars when I run marathons. It doesn’t hurt my tum tum ;)). Also since I am waiting for my Ignite Naturals IN Refresh electrolytes to come in.. I had Gatorade..which I didn’t put enough powder into so it was more like sugar water.
beef burrito, tortilla, beans, cheese, lettuce and carrots (on the side).
orange, half banana, spinach, tropical vegan shakeology, ice and water
ground beef, greek yogurt, black beans, quinoa, broccoli, mushrooms, sprouts
