That was fine when I was running long on the weekends. I started in August to train for a October Half Marathon, then there was a 15K in November and one in January, as well as a 10 miler in January.
I was still Run-gry after that because I continued to train for a March 30 Half Marathon.
Eating everything in sight has become a habit.
I still run at least 3 times a week. Usually after work. I am hungry all the time and eat frequently.
This is what I eat on an average weekday:
- oatmeal – 7 am
- bagel & biscoff – 9 am
- yogurt – 11 am
- apple or pear – 12 pm
- string cheese – 2 pm
- protein bar – 4 pm
- dinner (meat, rice, vegetable) – 6:30 pm
- ice cream – 8 pm
I run on the weekends but my races have been 5ks and 4 milers. The problem is that I am carbloading like it was a long run and I am still ordering desserts like I was running 25 miles each week.
I don’t know for sure that I have gained weight but my clothes are tighter so I probably have (or the weight has just moved to my hips.)
With bathing suit season just around the corner, (I am going to Florida on May 14.) I’ve got to change something!!
A. Eat less and shrink my stomach so I’m not so hungry?
B. Run more and continue eating what I want?
I’m thinking B!
Happy Running! Anyone else have a similar eating disorder?
