boardjd Posted December 5, 2015 Share Posted December 5, 2015 Hi Everyone! I'm sure similar topics have been posted a lot, but I wanted to put out my personal issue to try and get some advice/input. I'm running a full marathon on Feb. 14 and am doing my second round of Whole30 starting Jan 4. During the Whole30 time frame, my training plan has me running 176 miles, so I am pretty nervous about not getting enough hearty carbs to give me energy to get through the day and through my runs. I did my first Whole30 in September, and didn't necessarily feel tired on my runs, but as soon as I was having rice and quinoa again, my pace improved by about a mile a minute. I'm very confident that I can follow the rules -- my first time, I was very strict and to my knowledge, never broke a Whole30 guideline. This time, I'm thinking about allowing myself brown rice and quinoa to eat, mainly on nights before long runs. (I have several 10 miles or over, one 20 mile run and one 23 mile run). I guess that would mean this whole30 would be less about a big "cleanse" and more about my relationship with food (which I'm fine with), although I'm sure the benefits would still be pretty great. Does anybody have any thoughts? Thanks! Jacob Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
