What do you eat?
I tend to do my long (for me) run early on a Saturday Morning, after a snack of a banana and a glass of lucozade sport.
After the run I then tend to feel starving all day and then commbined with a few drinks Sat Eve tend to probably eat far too much on a Saturday as a result of my long run / Saturday treats / reduced willpower after alcohol.
I know before a run = eat carbs. But what about after?
I would like to return from the run and have a filling, satisfying brunch (about 11:30am) that keeps me going until our evening meal (about 7 - 8pm).
What do you recommend / eat after your LSR?
Anything that takes my fancy. I find when I'm training hard that my body craves what it needs so I generally feed it what it wants.
Faves after a long run include all the obvious choices - pasta, potatoes, banana, cereal/yoghurt etc. Pizza is always good too, but get a bit 'eyes too big for my belly' sometimes, so can't stomach much. Warm, cosy food like toasted hot cross buns are good, as are sugar-sprinkled-strawberries. Especially good when it forms that cherry-red syrupy liquid in the bottom of the bowl. Ohh..
Scrambled eggs with sardines (or spinach) on toast, big mug of tea.
Then a bit of a rest for an hour, then a bit more toast with Peanut butter and a nice cup of proper (none of your instant bollocks) coffee.
I usually have a can of cold baked beans straight away then once I'm showered and dressed I'll have a bowl of porridge and toast and marmalade (pref with real butter!), a cup of non-proper coffee (!!) and a pint of herbal tea.
Cold baked beans?! Each to their own Pavey!
I can't stomach much after a run so have some chocolate milk. Then I don't eat until my next meal / snack, which I know is norty but I just don't want to eat anything
After my morning Sunday LSR I nibble on a few things like nuts, bread and olives, fruit etc while I'm waiting for my lunch to get ready - usually curry & rice, risotto or pasta. If I'm in a hurry when I get back, I make pancakes stuffed with a sauce made out of some tinned tomatoes heated and mashed up a bit which has had small pieces of chargrilled halloumi dropped into it. Yum!

Crunchy, Kev. Don't come on here if you're gonna do smooth...
I'd best be off then
I like to eat fillet steak with steamed veg!
Oy yes - crunchy it will be.
Will be adding it in to my trolley tonight!
