Today I ran my first 10k race. As I experienced in training as my runs got over 5 miles, I am absolutely famished. Every two or three hours the hunger pangs get so bad I want to eat. The problem is that the calories are adding up fast and I'm going to a family dinner tonight. No idea what will be served or the calories. Apparently I burned over 700 calories during my race.
My question is this: do I try to stay in my spark range (1200-1500) or do I ignore it for today and just eat when my stomach growls at me?
