30 Bananas a Day!

I'm training for a 42k in February 2016. Since training started, I find myself feeling sleepy before I even have a chance to eat dinner. My body tells me to hit the hay, while my brain tells me to eat (since I haven't met the day's caloric quota) What's the right thing to do?

Hmm need to be a bit more informative of your daily training and eating regime for people to help ya. maybe you should train a bit lighter so your not as tired? or maybe you should take a nap during the day to catch up of sleep. But you should always be meeting your daily caloric quota so maybe a bigger breakfast or lunch or meal prep a meal for directly after you workout so you can get your food in.

Could try drinking a coconut's worth of coconut juice as your post-workout re-hydration. I've enjoyed that sometimes, and then just eaten when I got hungry the next day.

Or you could eat...something...just don't call it dinner? And doesn't have to be a full production dinner. Then, in the morning, my hunger kicks earlier, to make up for the deficit.

Jim and Declan, thanks for the advice. Both were helpful! 

Declan: 2x a week running for 30 minutes. 1x badminton 1x core work 1x plain walking 1x long run (did 5 miles last week, doing 6 miles this week), 1x no exercise

Food: everything gets logged into cronometer. Lots and lots of fresh seasonal fruit, some greens, some fats (like coconut and avocado), non-811 supplementation.  I aim for 2500 calories everyday. When the sleepiness hits, I check and I've only gotten in 1800 calories. 

On the one day I don't exercise, I take naps. 

2 months later, have you figured out your eating and sleeping needs? How many meals are you eating and when do you last train? IMO, as long as you are packing in carbs immediately after training, then later meals are not as important. If you can sleep hungry, then you're not truly hungry (unless in crisis, like starvation).

I prioritize getting my calories in these days. The marathon is in 19 days! I'm excited!
