I got home a wee bit late for my evening run. It was pretty disappointing, but I need to rest (and do some extra work) more than I need to run. I don’t mind missing general workouts, but I do hate to miss my mileage! Grr!
I’ve started to compile my marathon training plan. I’m basing it on a few different plans. It’s a slow and painful process to put it together — the plan is 25 weeks long!
I’m trying to identify any weekend activities that will throw off my long runs in advance:
Afternoon snackies included cereal:
Some random handfuls of granola… I was feeling snack-y!
Dinner Part 1:
I made a Chocolate Amazing Grass smoothie with Nasoya Silken Dark Chocolate, unsweet almond breeze, 1 scoop of Amazing Grass, and 1 banana.
It was so chocolate-y and delicious!
Dinner Part 2 was eaten around 8:30. I had crackers, hummus, and broc. Plus, more crackers.
Do you Front or Rear Load Calories?
I had a comment earlier that my lunches are looking smaller (calorically) than usual. Well, they are! On purpose! Because I’ve been so stressed out, I’ve been wanting to snack more in the afternoon. By eating a small lunch, I’m "budgeting" more room for bigger/frequent snacks in the afternoon. Plus, my days are soooo long. I always get hungrier later!
I know some people who like to eat breakfast as a king, lunch as a prince, and dinner as a pauper — they would rather front-load their calories.
Of course, I’m sure some people spread out their meals pretty equally throughout the day.
Do you front or rear load calories? Why?
