As I have mentioned on a few other posts, I am training for a marathon. I have been a sprinter and lifter most my young life, so the training and nutrition associated with endurance is very foreign to me. I posted my current diet on another thread of mine, I will re-post below
Meal 1: Oatmeal, berries, 2 eggs, glass of milk, glass of O.J.
Meal 2: 1/2 lb. Fat Free Cottage Cheese & Carrots
Meal 3: Whole wheat tortilla with Chicken Breast a little cheese and salsa
Meal 4: Fat Free Yogurt and Berries
Meal 5: 2 scoops of Low-Carb Grow!
Meal 6: 1/2 lb Cottage Cheese
Note: Surge on 3 lifting days and intense running day. Diet is not exact, somedays I will only have 5 meals, and I have about 1 - 3 cheat meals each week. I take about 9 grams of fish oil a day and 6 grams of flax seed oil in capsules.
The people that gave me advice indicated I am not eating enough. I am 6’1" 210 lbs. which is overweight for me. I would like to run the marathon (October 8th) under 185.
I could really use some help here guys, this is by far the most useful website that I frequent, there is a great variety of different training programs and diets we all have access to. However, I haven’t much luck finding good diets for the kind of training I am involved in (with good reason it is afterall a lifting site.)
So you guys have all the info, this is what my week will look like:
Sunday: 3 mile run
Monday: Bench, Shoulder Press, and dips
Teusday: 10 mile run
Wednesday: Pull ups, bent over rows, bicep work, ab work
Thursday: 4 mile run
Friday: Squats, ham curls, calf raises, hyper extensions
Saturday: 2 mile run
REPEAT, with different running distances
Any advice on my diet or training would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you have more questions, I will check my post multiple times a day.
