30 Bananas a Day!

Hey Everyone

Last night I went on my longest run to date (16km) while using dates as running fuel.

In terms of energy levels they were pretty good but I am not a fan of the taste and consistency, almost got to the stage I was dreading having to eat one.

I only started going HCRV about a week ago though so is it probably a detox sort of thing or do all foods get kind of unappetising on long runs?

Any advice or ideas of different fuel to try would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Josh

What about raisins or dried apricots?  

I did run in the past for a continuous 45 minutes without stopping but I recently started making 40 continuous freestyle laps in a 25 meter pool everyday. My primary energy foods are sprouted seeds, soaked ground nuts, coconuts

The advantage and disadvantage of dates is one of the same thing; because they are a dense high carb, high cal food source they are brilliant for on the go food...they are also relatively low in water however and if pushing really hard can there for be hard to eat. I LOVE dates for training runs but for races, prefer datarade or orange juice made/mixed with celery juice. If running less than 2 hours you don't/shouldn't really need to eat any food during exercise unless you’re under eating or eating the wrong foods, (like it sounds Rama might well be)!!

 - like the old saying goes - carb up! ;)

...try raisins, figs, dried mango or banana...or fresh if you can carry them whilst keeping them edible!!
