Real Food for Running Fuel
In the past, I've eaten pretzels, raisins, dates, dried apricots and bananas.
I ate rice on today's run. I added honey to my leftover white rice in hopes that I could make rice balls, but they wouldn't hold together so I ate the mixture anyway, not wanting to waste the honey like I did last time! Surprisingly, it tasted okay - even if there was cilantro in it. (Leftovers!) I had about 3 tablespoons rice and a teaspoon honey divided up at miles 7 and 11.
The weather was nice today - the humidity was low so I felt great on my 15 mile run. It was like being on vacation in some other place than southeast Texas. When I finished the run, I felt like I could have run farther.
