Or should I say rest before the long run?
Week 2 of the marathon training done and dusted!!
I have sort of started testing carbo loading in a small way after reading “Train like a mother” .
I didn’t eat the amount I will need for the marathon but a third of the marathon amount as I ran just over 1/3 of a marathon distance today..
Thought that amount of carbs was appropriate TO START WITH:)
Happily eat more:)
“Oh, no, please don’t make me eat the bread”!
Twist my arm then to eat more Pasta…:)
Thursday and Friday I upped my pasta, and bread intake.
I eat quite a bit of bread (err since I bake it a lot, I have to!)
Slight increase on the scales BUT didn’t freak out like the ladies @ another mother runner said not too!!
I made this gorgeous Fruit wholewheat bread , great for a runner I reckon!
It may be the placebo effect but I felt better, or I did not feel as tired today.
It was 16 km today but I reckon that rest day on the friday helps too…or the day before the long run , rest…
You know how hard that is for me!!
Will try the carbo loading again next week and see how we go especially as the long run increases.
