I may have a little snack like string cheese or an apple, but if I eat heartier during the day - not more calories but "better" calories - I can get through the day without crashing. AND I don't normally feel like I have to eat a huge meal at night, just a lean protein and a salad will usually do the trick...even after a good workout!

Here's a good question: Do you tend to eat a bigger breakfast, lunch, or dinner? If you've been trying to lose weight, what are you finding works better for you?

For those of you who are in this year - 4 hours until Wine and Dine Registration!!

3/11 - 47 minute walk, 80 minutes yoga

520/1400
Ditto! I don't really change my calories when running maintenance "low" mileage (for me), I can keep the calories on the lower (but adequate) side and that and exercise is how I lose weight. To answer Pluto's question, when I'm trying to lose weight, I tend to eat 3 small meals and 2 snacks during the day. After dinner, no snacking) I workout in the evenings, most of the time before dinner, and when I run, the dinner tends to be a protein and salad/veggies with a small carb side (or no carb side). If I eat before I run, then I move one of my day snacks to after my run instead. I adore soft pretzels post-run, sometimes with a little melted cheese on them. And a little beer..... I know, not a ton of protein but it's ok for a 30 min run. I also like humus and pita chips post-run or just plain old baked chicken with a bit of salt.

When I'm logging high mileage (and that goes for all the runs that week, not just the long one), I do well when I eat carbs at breakfast (like a waffle or something), and a sandwich for lunch then a VERY light snack pre-run and dinner after. but honestly, when I'm running 10-11 mile runs, I can maintain my weight (or lose a little) without watching too close what I eat because you are burning so many calories. Which is one of the perks of running for me!

Pre- and post- run nutrition was the trickiest thing for me to figure out during training for my first half. It's completely individual and you have to just try things out.

I did learn that you can't do TOO much sugar though, or you will just keep crashing and burning. I found that out while training during last halloween....

Oh those wonderful soft pretzels...YUM! and I'm all over the pita chips hummus thing. A few of those and I'm all set for dinner after a good run...along with a salad of course!

Last year for the W&D I had part of a sub around 5pm that night (wasn't that hungry) and a protein bar about an hour before take off. Downed about 10 Honey Stingers between miles 6 and 8 and was starving by the time I crossed the finish line. This year, it's all about chowing down on pasta during the day with some lean protein and definitely a better protein bar closer to the start. I just discovered Honey Stingers with caffeine which has my name written all over them!

I agree, I think the biggest thing you can do is just try out different things until you find what works best for you. You may be tempted to try something new on race day, but DON'T DO IT! The last thing you want to end up with is stomach issues!!

60 minutes for me today at the gym.
45 mins intervals
15 mins lifting weights

I was supposed to do 6 intervals this week, but I never did the 4 last week, so I only got through five. I guess that's splitting the difference? Oh well, I got out there and did it unlike Monday

Seeing the empty blanks on the spreadsheet has been good motivation for me this month...

YES. Or have other issues... I ate a blueberry muffin before a long run the other day... it was GF which tend to be pretty sugary anyway... let's just say I learned about that "GI distress" that people talk about pretty quick At least the muffin was good.

25 min Jillian DVD. New total 345/800

I have two more weeks of extra cross training and then I'll change one of those to running to try out 4 run days per week. I've never done that so I'm excited to try!

Anyone do Jillian's 90 day body revolution? I had it with plans to start after the wine and dine last year and then I got hurt and had to postpone. Now I don't know how to incorporate it w my running...
