Yesterday I was RAVENOUS. Not just a little bit, but a lot. And I ate a lot. I'm not sweating it too much - it was one day and I'm back on track today, but still. I definitely notice it, though... today I feel a little more poochy than I did yesterday.

I am subbing today, and then I'm headed to the gym for some upper body stuff. I want to give my strength training the same love as I'm giving my running. And my running is coming along really well. Yesterday I did 7 miles and it felt so good. I took along an orange Hammer Gel and had it about one hour in. It definitely did the trick. I made it to my mileage, no problem. I felt as if I could have kept going, but I am really making an effort to be smart about my training and not overdoing it. I don't have a Garmin (yet - when I hit 50 miles this month I'm treating myself), but my pace was pretty consistent. I use Map My Run, and it showed that my miles were all within about 20 seconds. Not too bad for going by feel alone!

- drink all my water
- keep my eating in check - I honestly think yesterday was my body not knowing what to do with itself because it just ran 7 miles. I think the plan for the next long run is to eat more food, sooner after I'm done. I didn't have very much after my run yesterday, and I think that had something to do with my eating spree.
- work hard at the gym! I don't like to waste my time when I'm there.

    When I was training I was always hungry, but that lead to weight gain. Keep an eye on your intake!

    The over-hunger feeling was probably your body reactlng to the extended run. You are right to not dwell on it and get back on track today. Good job!!!

    When you eat a carb, eat a works great to keep your caloric intake where it needs to never want to get to the starving stage.....your body wants food and is just burning extra on those days you seem to be ravenous

    I get those days every now and then and those are the days I eat as much of the good food as I want.
