Here's a question about fuel for a hard workout.
I will run a very hilly 5 mile road race on Sunday, and though I've raced a lot before, I actually think I could do really well in this one. Here's the rub: my husband says I shouldn't worry about maintaining a calorie deficit for the next three days in order to fuel my body well for the race. What do you think?
I have often struggled with serving the dual masters of fuel for training and trying to lose weight simultaneously, and have often thought that I should concentrate on one or the other.
Any great tips for what's best to eat leading up to the race?
