Pre-Long Run Fuel

What do you eat the day before your long run? I am running my long run(20) today because the rest of my week is pretty busy. So yesterday I tried to eat good.  I try to eat good everyday but I pay even more attention if I am running long the next day.

Starting off with my breakfast of oatmeal, chia seeds, almond butter, banana and cinnamon.

For lunch I had sushi but forgot to take a photo.  I had 3 pieces of salmon sushi with brown rice and a tuna avocado roll with brown rice.  I am not gonna lie, I was still hungry after this so on my way back to the train I went past this soft serve fruit place.  I had the frozen banana with peanut butter, pretzels and chocolate chips on top.  It is delish! 

For dinner I made a new recipe from my new cookbook THE FEED ZONE.  I made the chicken fried rice which apparently is Lance Armstrong's favorite post workout meal.  It was way good and super easy.

And that's it!  ......... no I ate more :)  I had grahams and milk followed by frosted flakes in my cup of leftover milk.  I always need a sweet treat after dinner.

So we will see how it goes. I am off to do 20.

What do you eat before a long run?  Anything special or just play it casual and eat the usu?
