Recent primal convert - feel terrible when training
Today I went for a 14k trail run (moderate hills). I ate a 'grok ball' (that's what I'm calling the primal energy balls from now on) 2 hours before I ran (nothing else eaten before this morning prior to running) and then another grok ball at 8k into the run - felt great! I wasn't pushing the pace by any means, averaged 7:08 min/km, and kept my heart rate below 70% effort (I wasn't wearing an HR monitor, but I can gauge it pretty well).
Ps. I tried to up my carbs slightly yesterday especially at dinner with double helpings of squash, but despite my efforts only managed about 95g.
Glad it seems to be working for you. I'm looking forward to getting my mileage back up when I can. I miss those long runs. They always seem a bit more enjoyable though when I run with my wife and let her take the lead.
