Awesome!  I love running while eating raw. Fruit is the ultimate for marathoners!

I would not be able to meet my calorie needs by eating once a day, unless I ate lots of dried fruits, raw honey, avocados or other fatty foods... Not sure how you can do this? As for not eating before a competition, I would not call this fasting but simply avoiding to have your body still spending energy on digestion when the fire goes off... If you stop eating 3 hours or more before a race, that should be sufficient... This does not mean, of course, that you should not control what you eat in the previous meals as well: most 811 runners avoid greens and produce with high fiber content the previous day, or even during 2 or 3 days prior to an event, preferring high-water content foods and juices.

Does anyone fast before running.  I normally just drink water even before and during a full marathon.  I just can't fathom a banana bouncing around in my belly for 4 hours.  Also, lately I have been eating one meal a day and feeling much lighter and energetic.  I fast every 24 hours and eat my evening meal raw.  Seems to help with the running and I feel lighter.

Cucumbers don't count Helen i'm afraid to say, they're a fruit whereas greens are leaves. Spinach is a good one because of its mild taste and juiciness, I literally can't get enough of it, mmmmm. If that doesn't work then green smoothies are the way forward.

 

Victor - 2 nights before a race I eat exactly what I usually eat, lots of fruit and greens. I wouldn't change anything before a race, that's a general rule no matter what diet you're on. Just make sure you're eating plenty of calories in the build up to race day. Go get em'

Hellen, have you tried blending greens in a smoothie? I've found that I don't eat that many greens unless I am really deliberate about it, but adding lettuce/spinach to a banana smoothie actually tastes great and is an easy way to add them in w/o much hassle.

on the greens Q, does cucumber count? I could happily eat a whole cucumber in a day if I had to but struggle with other greens

Greetings Tomas! Welcome to the group and the forum. Yep 80/10/10 will do that to you, it's one life altering book for sure. What distance do you usually run? I'm middle distance too but more towards the distance side, 1500m and 5000m mainly.

 

The simple answer to your vegetable question is LOTS! Lots and lots of greens are reccommended on this diet (roughly 1 pound per day). It depends on your current state of health and ability to absorb nutrients but you can't really get too many. Try and find greens you enjoy eating or failing that grab a blender and mix with fruit. From my experience, runners on a standard diet have far more problems with deficiencies. Done properly with enough calories from fruit and greens, you should be fine.

NOthing like an orange or two after a marathon!!!!!!  How can anyone want to at fast food after running I will never know.  If they listened to there body they would CRAVE juicy fruit.

Ewwww Chris that is a bad one.  I would stay off.  Easier said than done.  I just finished my 1/2 marathon and no bathroom problems!!!!!!  Amen!  Until after anyway.  I ran it with my 18 year old son.  It was his first and he can run a 5 minute mile.  I warned him about darting out and I caught up with him at mile 8.  Poor fella........my mommy heart just wanted to wrap my arms around him.  He was so discouraged but he didn't stop.  I slowed way down to his pace and we finished together.  I didn't care about my time.  It was a thrill to cross with my son at 2:00:56.  Not bad for his first.  This was a beast of a HM.  It was 6.5 uphill and the rest down.  You know there is a definite difference in eating fruit the day before a marathon and eating fruit/salad.  I felt really bogged down with  anything other than just fruit.  Now tonight I will have my humungo salad after my 6 oranges!  I used to eat a steak dinner the night before a race and would be burping steak during the run, my legs felt like lead, etc.  Now I run like a feather!!!  l LOVE RUNNING>  I can see myself doing thi in my 80's!

Love the idea, Victor. I've just been lazily soaking it in ice baths, not alternating and probably letting it sit too long. The color is getting worse, and the swelling isn't going down very fast, but it is feeling much better. I will be testing it a bit on my bike today.

WARNING: You may want to cover your eyes.

As an alternative to the ibuprofen dependecy, my aunt just introduced me to something called Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) as a means to confront physical or emotional traumas to the body. Seems simple enough and like it could be quite effective.
