............two days before Reading half marathon.
good or bad?
What a great thread!
I thought I had some kind of dodgy digestion system (as well as being a fat b*****d) because i've noticed I always run stronger/faster if I have fish and chips the day before. It works better than pasta or any other kind of carbo loading i've tried.
Nothing wrong with a good plate of chips. I'm told those strange peeps oop north put gravy on their chips. Now that is bad.
You're allowed salt too - as it's a long run.
I run best on steak, a big pile of mash and veg - pasta doesn't do it for me either.
Always has to be eaten with peas and gravy and washed down a can of dandilion and burdoch. Barm cakes are optional and depends on the ratio of the size of your eyes in comparison to your belly.
Then wine/beer shortly after.
Then a good run at Reading is a cert.
I had a 5k PB shortly after finishing a huge Sunday roast with a whole bottle of wine.
Good I think, but sounds counter-intuitive
nope, i think fish n chips is a FAB pre marathon meal
Good fish and chips ISNT oily at all-it should not be
i dont do pasta either
but NOT D and B
