Hi I'm heading for the first 20min run tomorrow and just wondered what you all do re eating and drinking, do you have a little to eat earlier or nothing till afterwards ? I never seem to have much energy before I go and sometimes I really struggle
Food or not?: Hi I'm heading for the first 20min... - Couch to 5K
No, not yet I keep looking for it. Sainsbury has it in some stores but not seen it in ours, but it’s a fiver a 500g bag
I didn’t want to have to start sprouting my own but I’ve not ruled it out. We used to have a flour guy here but he sold out to a Cotswold flour company, sadly Getting flour mail order is costly cos of the delivery charge. I do sourdough and that takes time. This stuff can take over your life 🙂
I made bread this afternoon, half white and half stoneground wholemeal 😋.
Sprouting things can be fraught as they seem to pick up bugs while they’re hanging about. Mind you the bread gets cooked but it makes me wary 🙂. My neice got raging infection with home-sprouted alfalfa or sommat. I warned her but kids ey 👀🙄
I could grow spelt but then you have to buy a grinder 😃 Hugh feebly worsts it used an electric one with good results 🤔🤓
That's good to know , now I know I will never run 10k , mind I not got to 5k yet 😂
If you read the guide to the plan healthunlocked.com/couchto5... it explains that if you have a good broad based healthy diet, then there is no need to change it and certainly no need to eat extra to do C25K.
I felt the unpleasantness of running after a meal (it was my first time, I didn't know!) and have planned runs to be at least an hour after eating a light meal since.
BUT a couple of times when I couldn't plan I was staaaarving and it felt like it would be unwise to run on such low energy, so those times I had a boiled egg and a glass of water and went out about 10 mins after it. I haven't experienced any issues with that yet. ❤️️☀️
