krisbee911 Posted October 14, 2012 Share Posted October 14, 2012 Hi everyone! I am on day 14 of my October Whole 30 and am running my second Half Marathon in one week! I'm pretty nervous since I haven't gotten many good runs in since my last Half a month ago, due to my lack of energy others seem to experience too. I have been doing Crossfit regularly in hopes that it would help out where my runs were failing. Does anyone have any advice for what to eat the week leading up to the race/fuel during the race? (I am about 5'4 and 125# for some reference) I was thinking about eating a half-full sweet potato every night but is that too much? I bought some baby food packets in hopes that they would help me along during the race. The last one I did I ate some Gu packets and have never had so much energy! But I would really like to try running this one strict Whole 30-style!! I normally just eat 2 hardboiled eggs before a run but maybe I should eat some starchy vegetable then too? I haven't been eating much fruit either (before the Whole 30 I always drank a protein/fruit smoothie before runs). Thanks guys! Hope everyone else doing the October whole 30 is doing great too!
