I usually am not hungry the day of my long run. The day after I am a bottomless pit, but the actual day of the run I usually eat just because I feel “empty”.
My RD and my research has shown that this is pretty common as running can diminish hunger signals. That is normally the case with me on long run days, but today I am for real.
Shortly after breakfast I snacked on chips and salsa until Ben was back from errands for lunch. Since I didn’t make a SIAB for breakfast I wanted one for lunch.
But, instead of a Smoothie In A Bowl I made a Smoothie in a Cantaloupe!In the Mix: vanilla greek yogurt, ice, spinach, frozen banana, almond milk and xanthan gum. Topped with granola.
Truth be told I cannot remember what my afternoon snack was, but I’m sure I had something since I was HUNGRY all day. Weirdest thing.
Now we are cuddling up to watch a movie, so I must go.
Question: Are you usually hunger the day of a run or the day after?
Until today it was ALWAYS the day after. Random right?
