you can eat extra carbs anytime you want...it all depends on your goals. having a sweet potato before a 10k or greater run is probably a good idea for energy reasons, but some people can eat more carbs fairly often and not see a lot of weight gain.
I do okay with 100g of carbs a day and running a 5 miler. But doing 10 miles I would definitely advise a bit more carbs and like primalrob said maybe throw in a sweet potatoe. The difference between a 5 and 10 miler is pretty huge especially if you are tinkering with VLC.

People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.
