Eating & Running

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

I exercise in the mornings, largely because if I put it off I am way too good at using those hours at work to come up with better ways to spend my afternoon. But, also, I can't eat and then run. I can't eat and then jog or hop or spin or do much of anything, really. If my stomach isn't empty, well, it's just not good.

But this week - my first back consistently in the gym in awhile - I find myself STARVING on the way to the gym.

During the actual exercise it subsides, most likely because I have more pressing concerns like not falling off the treadmill.

Then I take a shower and I drop everything because I'm shaky, then I get to work and I'm ravenous again.

I suppose I could get a granola bar or something to eat in between the treadmill and the shower, but I swear this wasn't a problem before. Not even in the beginning of getting back into a routine.

    I just started going to the gym really early, and I found that a cup of coffee and half a banana about 1/2 an hour before my workout does wonders!

    Try drinking a glass of milk or orange juice or eating like half a banana or half a granola bar or some yogurt. Just eat something REALLY light before you workout and then eat your normal breakfast when you're done with your workout.

    I have the same problem - if I eat too much I get that full feeling & its not good... I eat a piece of fruit - usually an orange/apple before I workout. The simple sugars help give you a dose of energy for your workout.
