  1. Physibeth did you follow the Pre-WO and Post-WO eating guide? I seem to have missed that in my first few days. Not used to eating before running my short weekday runs, only my longer weekend runs. I'm on Day 8 and still no power in my legs. Glad I'm not the only one whose slump lasted longer than a few days!
  2. Thanks Renee. That's helpful. So far I feel like I can't get through the *anything* except a very gentle yoga class, but it's only Day 6. It'll get better, right? RIGHT?

    Unsweetend almond milk?

    Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk from Silk has the same ingredients plus "natural flavor" - does that make it a no-go? I'm looking for something to splash in my coffee once in awhile, but I don't think I want it bad enough to whip up a DIY batch of nut milk until I figure out if I even like the stuff. (Tried to drink it black today and... well, I'll just mostly stick to tea. But every once in awhile I want coffee.) INGREDIENTS: Almondmilk (Filtered Water, Almonds), Sea Salt, Natural Flavor, Locust Bean Gum, Sunflower Lecithin, Gellan Gum.
  4. How did I miss that? Thanks. I'm on Day 6 and still feel like my muscles have no power. Went to yoga yesterday at lunch and felt pretty blah. This morning I ran and definitely felt blah. I don't usually eat anything at all before my 5:30am runs since they're only 3 and 4 miles. Should I be eating something every time I work out? Eggs and turkey just don't sound appetizing to me at 5 am! Nothing sounds appetizing at 5 am. I always pick sleep over getting up early to eat! Pre-W30 would eat a rice cake with peanut butter before longer runs on weekends. Yesterday I tried an Epic bar - bison, bacon, and cranberry - just to see if i liked them, and it was quite tasty. Would that be a good option before long runs?
  5. Where do I find the Whole 30 guidance on what to eat pre- and post-workouts? I have ISWF but I haven't finished reading it yet. Is there a blog or something that i'm missing? Protein and fat beforehand, protein and carbs after?
  6. Runners - what do you eat *during* long training runs? This is my first day of Whole 30 and my half-marathon training mileage is starting to climb. Feeling intimidated - first long run is in 2 days. What are good substitutes for gu, shot blocks, etc? Easier to carry is better. I don't have a whole lot of room in my race belt to go lugging a sweet potato around with me. Thanks!
