March 5th Fuel

I love Friday’s. Friday’s are my official rest day. Normally, I run super long runs on Saturday mornings, so Friday’s I have absolutely no workouts. Not even relaxing yoga. Plus, I get to eat a little bit more than normal to fuel for my Saturday runs.

Personally, I struggle with balancing quantity and quality on Fridays. I need to eat more, because I need a lot of fuel (and then some) on Saturdays, however I don’t want to splurge so much that I feel sluggish. I will definitely be hungrier than normal on Sunday (day after a 20 miler for me is killer). So I rather save some extra calories/points for Sunday when I can relax.

Alright long runners…what do you nosh on the night before a killer run?
