<insert watermelon and Clif Z bar here>
I was pretty munchy today and knew I needed a high volume kinda snack. This means different things on different days. Today it meant a whole bag of popcorn all for me. I leave no kernel unpopped or uneaten.
I get a lot of questions about how I eat the day before a long run and race. My answer is simple: Salty Carbs. I usually go with something Asian-ish that includes rice and tons of soy sauce. (nataliedee.com)
I wouldn’t eat sushi before a race but since I don’t actually get any raw fish it works before a long run where it would be okay if I tanked. The night before the Arizona Half Marathon I ate Thai. This is pretty much the usual.
That being said, I do what works for me. I drink a ton and sweat 10 tons, so I need a lot of sodium to balance it. You have to figure out what works for you during training. Either way load up on the carbs and give it a go!
My Garmin is still dead and I don’t have an app for it Looks like my long run is going to be a mystery tomorrow. Wish me luck…
