Jeff Galloway Poses with Slenderella


Monday, June 10, 2013



He said lots of things I'd heard before and some new things. One thing he said was that if you don't replenish your glycogen stores after long runs you are going to be hungry. The body is set up that way. He said within 30 minutes (I thought it was 2 hours) have 100 calories for a 5K or 300 calories for half marathon or in between for in between with the best ratio being 80% cabs and 20% protein. He recommended Endurox and Accelerade. I may check them out later. He said you can put the powder in a water bottle and add water after your run as a convenient way to get precisely what you need.

I also didn't realize that he had grown up a fat kid and hadn't taken to running immediately. I hadn't heard him tell his personal story and it was quite powerful. Glad I attended. Glad I've signed up for another year of Galloway group training!!

    LOVE the photo! looking awesome! That was interesting to hear about his background -that has got to be inspiring for people!! Great info about refueling after runs -I know I have to eat something soon after my workouts because I am always well hydrated so the hunger is real.
So glad you are continuing with the group!

    I had read his story, so that part is not surprising... and now I have why I got so hungry yesterday... didn't restore the glycogen soon enough after Saturday's run/walk! Normally we would have but the rain kind of got in our way.

Learning... wonderful stuff! Spark on! And great picture, by the way. emoticon

    He's a nice guy, isn't he?

The body is more sensitive to glycogen replenishment for up to 2 hours after exercise, but 30 minutes is the optimum window. I like Accelerade gels (chocolate). I also have both of the powders, but tend to just stick with the gels. They are 100 calories per packet. I get less (really no) GI distress from them during long runs. Gu has always been problematical for me that way, although my GI track has definitely "toughened up" over the last 4 years of long runs and races.

Did he tell the story about his mother's last race?

    Great picture..and wow.. it means a lot to me to hear that he was a fat kid and didn't immediately take to running. Its even MORE impressive to think he went from fat kid to Olympian.
