It's not been the best week for post-graduate runs as Easter school holidays have thrown me off routine a bit so instead of morning runs on non-work days I have so far only managed one run since Sunday's week 9 final run and by necessity it had to be a pre-dinner one on Wednesday.
The run itself went well and it was a lovely evening... But I came back, drank some water and although I was no longer feeling hungry, ate a large bowl of minestrone soup I'd made earlier, slice of bread, fruit salad - yum! But almost immediately I felt uncomfortably full. I thought the problem was eating BEFORE a run?
Have looked on Internet and it all seems to be about not eating too soon before a run, and encouraging eating quite soon after a run as it's an optimum time to do so. Usually I run a couple of hours after breakfast so only have a small snack afterwards (banana/raisins and seeds). My Sunday run was before dinner too and felt too full after eating then too. Has anyone else experienced this? Maybe just me...?
