I was reading a comment on Shirley's Blog earlier today where she mentioned she had worked through a performance limiter - nutrition.
Maybe because I just got back from vacation, which included dining out for every meal, so I was eating things I normally wouldn't...
I have been thinking a lot today about what others are fueling themseves with before they run. I understand that this sort of thing requires a lot of trial and error and it's not a one-size-fits-all solution.
I know that I feel stronger on long runs when I have pasta with sausage. I have experimented with ground beef and it just doesn't have the same effect. But does it make sense to have that for dinner every Friday night? What else is there to eat to add variety yet keep me strong?
I want to make wise fuel choices that will help increase my performance.
What works for you?
