If you have read any of my previous posts you will notice that I’m a beginner runner and have been working hard at it (in my head I have anyway).
I now have a goal which is great as it is giving me something to think about and aim for and also gives me motivation to get out and run. Which is the main thing for me at teh moment. I am really loving getting out of the house and going running!! Can’t believe I’m actually saying that.
Some runs are better than others. But I am guessing that is the same with most people. After reading plenty of blog posts I have realised my diet is…how do i say… rubbish, unhealthy and basically no good for me? This is not something new to me.
When I started out I wasn’t too serious due to the fact I did not think I would last One week let alone over 10 weeks. So I have been still eating whatever I want and pretty much whenever i want! Some healthier choices have been made but not as many as i should. This is definitley not good when it’s a run day as I recently found out 3 days ago when I threw up 3km into a run. Ewwww.
So I now need to work out what foods are best for me and my stomach. I’m a fussy eater, have acid reflux and also suffer occasionally from IBS. (Lucky me). The bad foods are what seem to be ok and agree with my stomach (hence why i eat rubbish!).
Some posts i have read have helped me make healthier choices but my problem is … I know nothing about nutrition, bad fats, good fats etc. When I say nothing I mean I just don’t get it (at all).
If anyone can share their wisdom or diet advice with me I am all ears. If it’s a long message you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help or advice you can give to help me with my journey will be much appreciated
