raw food as running fuel

Okay, so I did the run this morning.  I ate a good sized salad at Cafe Gratitude last night around 8:30 pm (a little later than desired)  which had kale, kraut, seaweed and  a wee bit of cooked quinoa added.  I got up this morning and drank 1 1/2 cups coconut water with 1 banana blended and 1 tablespoon of Sun Warrior Protein.

I felt way better today than last week.  We ran about the same amount of miles, 6.5.  I felt pretty good on that food fuel until the last mile or so, then began to feel tired.  My muscles felt good, everything seemed to be working great.  Very little knee pain, no other pain, but just got drained of energy torwards the end.  I think the diet still needs a little tweaking as I was burping up banana for a while, but most likely because I only ate it 1 hour before the run and should have done 2 hours.

Drank the L Glutamine when I got back with another 2 Tbs. Sun Warrior Protein, 1 Tbs. vitamineral Green with 1 banana, frozen strawberries and blueberries and water.  That’s been holding me over and it’s 2:30pm now so good choice on the food fuel.

  1. Elaina, great work on your running! Have your read Brendan Braziers Thrive? He gives so many great recipes, all vegan, most raw, for athletes. I have tried them and they are great.
