I am going to be training for a marathon (date: Oct. 6th) and am curious about how to proceed if I do another round or two before then? In the past the only way I was successful was carrying carrots, apples, bananas, nuts and larabars with me - I teach water aerobics, HiiT, and treadmill classes at our local Y. When I am in my training/running season along with classes I notice that I have to eat ALOT. (Also was training for half marathons at the time) If I eat the recommended 3 daily meals, plus a pre and a post (4th) meal. I'm still ravenous. Now, in the past I have just drank more water or some tea or tried to distract myself. But it has proven very difficult and I notice my performance is well "meh" along with I don't get tigerblood - I'm usually more like a saber tooth tiger.
Anyone who has experience or insight?
- I have played with portion sizes but wasn't quite sure if that was appropriate or in the spirit of W30.
Also, my husband would be grateful because he is not keen on a grocery bill of $150 (or over) for 2 people for 7-10 days worth of meals - or that I eat his portions.
