Eating to train (running)
I've picked up running in the last three months, and am able to do about 3 miles at a time. I used to feel good after a run, but now I feel super tired, bloated, or even sick. Because everything else is good, I think it's my diet.
That being said, I have no idea how to eat like a person training for a race (which I am). More protein? More veggies? What will keep me sustained for my workouts?
I run three days a week with three days of cross training also. I know I need to count calories, but I really feel like I'm eating the wrong things. Problem is, I have no idea where to begin, and I want to have enough fuel for my runs without loading up on unecessary calories.
Trying like crazy not to fit into my genes.
