  1. Pre-Run Fuel?

    Thank you so much for all the advice! It's nice to hear that it's not just me and that it will get better as I adjust to the diet, generally feel better, and figure out what works for me.
  2. Hello all! I'm very new to this world and have gotten SO MUCH information from this and other forums so far. This is my first week of a gluten free diet so I'm trying to figure out exactly how it is going to fit into my life. One of the bigger problems I'm having is figuring out how to fuel my runs. I currently run 25+ miles per week (with some cross-training thrown in) and will begin really training for my next half marathon in the next few weeks. Prior to cutting gluten out of my diet, I relied on animal crackers and PowerBar energy bars for pre-run fuel. Unfortunately, both of those are out now. I tried running 10 miles today on a gluten free waffle with peanut butter, but it was rough going and I felt very fatigued. I'm not sure if the fatigue was due to the general tiredness I've felt this week, the heaviness of what I ate, or the decreased carbs compared to what I'm used to. I'm at a loss as to how to effectively and healthily fuel my runs. Any runners or other athletes out there have suggestions? It took me some time to find that PowerBars were the best option for me... I find that I can't run with a lot of food on my stomach, but obviously have to have enough energy to complete 13.1 miles. (If it matters, I'm a 27-year-old female grad student and am also lactose intolerant.) Thanks for any help at all!!!
