3 meals per day used to be suffice. Now I am very hungry between 10-11am, 3-4pm and 9-11pm, even though I've had a decent breakfast, lunch and dinner. I run 40-50 miles pw, usually 6:00/7pm in the week and 10am saturday and very early on a Sunday.
What should I be snacking on? I get an urge for crisps, cake and other rubbish.
It's nearly 12 midday and I've been starving for 2 hours!
B/fast - 3 weetabix
Lunch - 2 rounds of sandwiches (tuna/cheese) + apple + banana
Dinner - pasta or rice dish with vegetables. once per week with chicken or fish.
I am 4 weeks in to the RW sub 3.00 schedule and everything is going fine. It is suggested that I run part of runs at race pace 6.52 m/m ( eg 3 of 5 miles or 5 of 7 miles or 7 of 15 miles). I have run 10 miles in 63 and a half in 1.25 off little training last year. What will I actually achieve by doing this race pace training over short distances? Is it a mental rehearsal? Or is this junk mileage?
Surely we'll expect a drop of pace in the second half. Maybe 6.40 pace is a better training pace than 6.52 for these shorter runs so that 6.52 is comfortable?
