    Marathon Training

    Hello! 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. THANK YOU!
  2. Hi Whole30ers!! I'll be running my first marathon on day 8 of my Whole30. I've been training with gels for the last 5-months but I'm concerned about how to fuel now that I'm starting Whole30 tomorrow. Whatare some Whole30 approved ways to fuel pre, during and post race? I welcome all suggestions! Thank you
  3. I am training for a marathon and just went from 20-25 miles a week to 30-35 miles a week. I also cross train. I eat a big breakfast and then I am not hungry. I make sure I eat lunch but only because if I didn't I would get a migraine. I don't snack, just eat 3 meals a day. It is very strange for me to run more and not be hungry more. Is it because I am eating quality foods with lots of protein? I don't want to eat less and my running to suffer. I also make sure I eat plenty of approved carbs. Could I eat less if I am not hungry? I know, this is not what you are used to...
  4. I am on day 2 of my second whole 30. My first was several years ago. I started this one because I have gotten back into a bad rut of unhealthy eating habits and have not been exercising like I should. I have run 3 half marathons in the past year and have my first full marathon coming up at the end of February. I had not even thought about how this Whole 30 would effect my training! Part of my problem is that I haven't been training and now I'm on an 8 week plan to get my miles in. I won't be doing the Whole 30 on race day, I'll be reintroducing things by then, but I will be for most of my training. I think eating sweet potatoes the day before long runs will be key for me but I hadn't even thought about race snacks. I currently eat a pureed applesauce pouch but I'm sure it's not compliant. I've read on here that a few people have found compliant electrolyte mixes and pouches, would you please share what they are? Can I buy them on Amazon?? Hearing that everyone's times are much slower while on the Whole 30 is a bit discouraging! I'm not a fast runner by any means but I do have a time goal in mind for my runs. I'm slower than I have been in the past right now due to not running for a while but I was hoping that would get better as I get back into it, however, it doesn't sound like that will happen while doing the Whole 30. Has anyone out there increased time while on a Whole30? During my last Whole30 I wasn't running but I was doing a lot of weight lifting and I got a lot stronger during my Whole30 so I was hoping to have the same positive effect this time. I appreciate any input, have a great day!
  5. Alright. This might be long, so I really appreciate in advance anyone reading and responding! I'm planning to start my (second attempt at) Whole 30 on July 6 - next Wednesday. I have a trip to Las Vegas this weekend to visit family and have decided I'm not going to attempt it while traveling (which is what derailed my first try three years ago, ack), so afterward it is! I'm feeling pretty good and fired up about it for a number of reasons, but a couple things have me pretty nervous.. I'm also going to be starting marathon training on the same day. This isn't my first marathon (and I've been running for about 3 years now), so I've been through the training and the ins-and-outs before, but this will be a new experience coupling it with a W30 and I'm growing kind of anxious about my runs suffering as a result while I adapt. During my last marathon training cycle (which was also my first), as my mileage peaked, I wasn't eating enough carbs during the week (and probably not enough calories in general) and my body got really out of whack - I actually lost my menstrual cycles for 3 months, *gained* 5 pounds, and basically had a whole host of hormonal problems that have finally started to sort themselves out this month. Because of that, I'm maybe overly cautious about food intake, macros, etc... I don't count calories or macros, but I try to be mindful of them, especially now. I already eat mostly paleo/grain free because through trial and error over the years I've found that way of eating agrees with my system the most, but previously I'd consume white rice the day before a long run or race, and I'd also enjoy a few alcoholic drinks on weekends, or small amounts of dark chocolate every so often (and very occasionally I'd splurge and eat something like a donut or a sandwich with 'regular' bread and almost always end up regretting it). I also used Honey Stinger gels and coconut water with a pinch of salt as fuel on LR's, too. Basically, I already eat pretty well so W30 isn't going to be a total shock to my system, but I am definitely a carb dependent athlete. I've been interested in becoming fat adapted but have always been too skittish to commit to it, knowing that it can take several weeks to transition. I've also been scared off fat-adapting by all the talk on conventional running forums, too. Also, I'm struggling to sort out fitting pre-WO and post-WO food into my schedule... I don't run at the exact same time every day due to my own variable schedule, but I always run in the mornings. Sometimes I'll run fasted first thing, but usually I'll at least eat a banana and a boiled egg (plus coffee!) before a run, or a bowl of chia pudding with berries on top, which I count as my breakfast. After my run, if it was longer than 4-5 miles, I usually eat a snack to stave off the "runger" until I can get to a proper lunch. Basically I'd love to hear from other endurance runners/marathoners about how they fit W30 into their training cycles. I figure that if I want to do this anytime soon, now is the best time as opposed to later in my training when mileage is higher, or waiting until after the race (Portland Marathon! in October) as the holidays are approaching. How do you know when to respect the fatigue and take a rest day, versus pushing through it? I have a tendency to over-train because I'm stubborn and sometimes ignore my body's signals when it's nagging me to back off... but at the same time, marathon training is a thing, and I need to stick with it. Am I crazy? Over analyzing? Any other crazy, overly analytical Whole 30'ers to commiserate with me? Thanks, y'all
  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!
