How to fuel for a long run.

I am being completely sarcastic in this post so please do not follow my example.  I usually do try to play it smart when preparing for a long run but today was just one of those days, ya know:)

How to fuel physically and mentally for a long run:

1.  Enjoy skittles and hot chocolate while you watch a 9 a.m. showing of Tangled with 300 teenagers.  Do not be ashamed that you laughed and cried harder than anyone else in the entire theater during the movie.

1. a.  Do not shower or look cute so that you will be more likely to get your buns out and onto your run after work.

2.  Call your doctors office and cancel your appointment saying that you have the stomach flu.  Do this because it would have cut your long run short even though it was a run that you should have done in the early morning but snuggling Billy was more important.

2.b.  Wear your hair in a greasy ponytail so that it already looks like you have run for 2 hours.

3. Stalk your favorite blogs during lunch to gain some motivation.

(my reading face).

4.  Drink another cup of hot chocolate, hydration people....come on.

5. Double fist your free Subway sandwich from school 30 minutes before you start your run.  Ouch....fiber.

Wish me luck....we shall see how this run goes:)

----------------------------------------------------------

Have you seen Tangled?  What is your favorite Disney movie?

-This has to be my favorite....seriously, go see it now.  I also love Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

What is your favorite pre-workout fuel?

-Bagel with pb and a banana.  Granola bars work well for me too.  Maybe skittles and hot chocolate will be my new favorite.

Any funny stories about pre-fueling mistakes?

-I will after today's run.

I pretty much eat nothing before I run, because that's all my stomach can handle.

When I very very first started running, and was still a smoker, I almost vomited on the sidewalk after running a quarter mile (I know!) after eating a bunch of fried eggs. Good times.

Same pre-long run favorite as you, except I like almond butter on my bagel instead of PB.

If you get the raw almond butter it taste so good! It's like eating a desert!

two fisting is certainly the way to go!

Love Tangled. Favorite Disney movie. Second place: Little Mermaid.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 1:55 PM , Blogger Kelly Laurette said...

Seriously..tangled was AMAZING. I laughed & cried constantly through the whole thing. Even my little sister looked at me a few times because i was the only one laughing. I want to watch it over and over. good luck on your run!

p.s. spin totally kicked my trash the other day. I always look forward to it :)

At February 4, 2011 at 1:59 PM , Blogger Rick and Nikki said...

I LOOOOOVE tangled! It was hilarious, both for girls & boys I thought. But maybe I'm just rationalizing because my hubby was a total sucker for it.

Pre-work out fuel: NOTHING - just like Rose above me. I don't like eating anything before hand, that way I'm not feeling sick to my tummy :-(

But what I make sure NOT to eat? That would be my FiberOne cereal w/ my usual strawberries. Too much fiber before a run could be a little painful - if you catch my drift ;-)

I really want to see tangled, but can't convince my husband to see it in the theaters. Here's to waiting til it's on netflix!

My favorite preworkout fuel is a banana and pb. Fantastic.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:01 PM , Blogger The Accidental Runner said...

Tangles was really good. I also love Lady and the Tramp, Oliver and Company, Beauty and the Beast. Apparently I heart cartoons :-)

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:01 PM , Blogger The Accidental Runner said...

Tangles was good actually...but TangleD was even better. Bahaha!

Well, lately I havent pre fuel for a long run, I am trying to calculate how far and hard I have to run so I can top you in candy eating for a day, on a side note, can you please foward this question to your science department so I do have to figure it out

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:05 PM , Blogger Rachel McPhillips said...

I really did like Tangled.. but Sleeping Beauty and The Little Mermaid will always be my favs!

Tangled was super cute!!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:11 PM , Blogger ShortSkirts said...

I tend to eat a banana before i run in the morning and go. But i'm only doing like 3-5 miles so that has been enough so far.

I love Beauty and the Beast!

I normally eat broccoli as an afternoon snack, and on tues moved my morning run to afterwork. Not thinking i downed like 2 cups of broccoli and carrots an hour before running. Let me tell you digesting fiber on the go feels really good.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:11 PM , Blogger Katie said...

Lilo and Stitch!! But I love almost all Disney movies :D Haven't seen tangled yet.

Favorite pre-workout fuel~ Coffee. For most workouts and runs I usually like an empty stomach.
When I do eat before hand it is usually a high fiber english muffin w/ pb and banana :)

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:12 PM , Blogger Tracy Simmons said...

Love this post! Disney movie? Alladin :)

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:13 PM , Blogger Stephanie said...

Anything with pb and banana (bagel, toast, tortilla, etc.)

K...do you read with your hand rested on your chin? Because I seriously do and then I have to slam it down because I think I touch my face too much. I am crazy!

I haven't seen Tangled yet but it's on the *to watch* list with my little ladies!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:15 PM , Blogger Laurie said...

I really enjoyed Tangled. Also love: Finding Nemo, Aladdin, Cinderella... pretty much all of them. Good luck on the run. I once ate a hot dog & mac&cheese before a run, but luckily it was only 8 miles... never again.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:15 PM , Blogger theAlmostRunner said...

Beauty and the Beast is one of my favorites. It's the first movie I saw in a theater! I was four. :)

And pre-run, I can't eat anything (of course, right now, my runs are only 1 to 2 miles). But maybe when I am able to do TONS of miles like you, I would love a banana with peanut butter. That's usually my afternoon snack!

Kill this run, girl! Can't wait to hear about it.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:19 PM , Blogger Small Town Runner said...

oh.....boy.......FIBER......

I cannot do it after 7:30 PM the night before a morning run. Or, you know...

So that sadly relegates me to either ICE CREAM or yogurt for late night snacks. Life is rough.
Rough, I tell ya!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:19 PM , Blogger running seal said...

This is too funny! But I am sure your run was still awesome!!

my fav disney movie is Beauty and the Beast!

I just received a package of Valentine's Day candies at home. Hellooooo GI issues on my 10 miler starting. right now.

Oops never tasted so good though!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:20 PM , OpenID runbakerace.com said...

I love me some Sword and The Stone, might have to watch it now that you mentioned Disney movies. Long run mistake would be not eating at all before a long run and not eating anything while on said long run. Makes for an interesting time! good luck on yours :)

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:20 PM , Blogger Small Town Runner said...

Awe...and if anyone can pull off the greasy ponytail, you can!! =D

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:22 PM , Blogger Mary (How To Not Be...) said...

I like the same thing. bread of some sort + pb (actually almond). Once I ate a some sugar-free (i.e. not tummy friendly) ice cream before running on a very public bridge. It was a bad day.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:22 PM , Blogger Lindsey@arunningtale said...

Tangled is awesome! It is my new favorite Disney movie!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:30 PM , Blogger sdralphs said...

Love Tangled and love that you got to skip work to watch it. No fair!!! Tangled and Beauty and the Beast are my fav! I also really like Little Mermaid and Lion King.

I love cereal or a bagel before I workout. Smoothies are good too. Sometimes I go running while I'm still eating. I am not a patient person.

I really have not had any pre-fueling mistakes I don't think. Thank goodness. My mom had one though. Funniest story, we make fun of her to this day. She must have ate something or forgot to go potty before, but she hit the stop sign near our house at the end of her run and she said she physically could not "hold it" anymore. She came in the house laughing and crying all at once and admitted to pooping herself! Ba ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! We call her poopy pants now and laugh at her constantly. So funny. I pray that never happens to me.

Happy weekend! I could not be more excited for the weekend and another week of Bachelor! Oh did you know crazy pants Michelle is starring in an upcoming LDS movie? What the? Who on earth would cast her. Here is the link:

Haven't seen Tangled yet, but I loooove Cinderella!!! and Aladdin! I liked Jasmine because she was the only Disney princess who had a stronger personality! =P That's probably why I would like Tangled! =D
Anyway, my favorite fuel is oatmeal or anything else fiber-y!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:37 PM , Blogger Jen said...

Good luck on your run! Knowing you even fueled like that, you'll do great!
Loved Tangled and Enchanted and The Little Mermaid.

The Little Mermaid will always have a special place in my heart....used to pretend i was Ariel when i went in the bath!

I usually remember I'm about to go running about 30 seconds after I eat a hot pocket.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:40 PM , Blogger One Crazy Penguin said...

Wait, this is sarcastic? But this is what I *really* do!?!

Just kidding! I like toast and peanut butter before a run. Nothing heavy. I got conditioned through years of basketball to not eat too close to exercise and now I can't.

Oh my goodness- you are the best at making me laugh- thank you for that :) I love the idea of calling the dr. to tell them you have the stomach flu so that you can run longer- you are my hero :) (& I'm keeping that idea in the back of my head..just in case of emergencies ;) )
Hope your run went well!!

Wait, why does my school not show disney movies...slash my biggest workout flop ever was having a giant stack of pancakes and then deciding it was time to get my sweat on. I hope your run went well girl! Eat some yummy deliciousness afterwards it is FRIDAY:)

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:47 PM , Blogger ashley & sundance said...

Mmmmm skittles and hot chocolate. :)

Fav pre long run fuel?? Pasta or baked potato or a banana.

Love cinderella and peter pan... saw tangled... loved it. So cute.

P.S. sean kingston (rapper dude) was on our flight from texas to florida. Totally asked for a picture and got DENIED!!! LOL.

Holy crow. I can't eat before a run, at all - even good stuff. Puke!! You have like the Stomach of Steel

 
At February 4, 2011 at 2:53 PM , Blogger Runners Fuel said...

A few months ago, I ate 1/2 bag of chips about 1 hour before my run. The chips boucning around in the tummy did not mix with the run. No vomit, though.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 3:03 PM , Blogger Lindsay and James Cotter said...

LOL! You just made my day. Hilarious! Pre workout fuel banana/almond butter on brown rice tortilla with honey and cinnamon, oh and zap it in the microwave for 20 seconds! BEAUTY!

Why am I obsessed with your funny pictures!? I just love them.

Last night I met a friend for dinner BEFORE I ran (i know, not the wisest choice). I had a small salad so I wasn't stuffed but then they brought these garlic bread balls to the table. I ate 3 and then asked for more. WHAT WAS I THINKING!? I had 3 more - count 'em... 6 garlicky oily balls of bread. Then, I ran.

Eww. I thought I was going to throw up the bread balls. EEK! but I didn't, because my stomach is pretty tough that way.

Mmm, skittles!! i want some!

I usually like a small bowl of oatmeal before a long run and lately I've been adding PB to it - yum!!

 
At February 4, 2011 at 3:40 PM , Blogger kay.tee. said...

My favorite pre run fuel is a green smoothie: 1 frozen banana, 1/2 c. SoDelicious unsweetened coconut milk, 1 tbs almond butter, a scoop of egg white powder, and a handful of spinach all in the magic bullet. Yum. I drink 3/4 of it before, and the rest after.

Do you eat before your morning runs? I don't remember seeing that in your morning routine! Oh and does your treadmill time out at 60 minutes? If it does, do you just restart it or do you restart it at a certain mile mark?

 
At February 4, 2011 at 3:42 PM , Blogger Holly said...

Everytime you post about school stuff you make me miss teaching!! I can't even remember what the last thing I ate before my 3 today...I was eating all day so that's part of the reason!

Alice in Wonderland is my most favoritest Disney Movie ever. And not because of all this new Johnny Depp Alice in Wonderland fluff. We're talking old school. I am a true fan.

Fueling mistake...not eating...Barf-o-rama!

Good luck on your run! I need to see Tangled since I love all kids movies. My favorite is Little Mermaid, and I wanted to be Ariel because we both had red hair. I also love Up! and Despicable Me.

Now it's carbs, carbs and only carbs.

And COOKIE DOUGH!!

You are adorable!! I haven't seen Tangled yet, but you can't go wrong with Disney! Movies at work trumps anything!!

GOOD LUCK on your long run!! I know you will do amazing. I hope you have something relaxing planned for this evening. After your uber-long Thursday, you totally deserve it!!!

Unfair. How do you manage to pull off the greasy hair look? Any tips? :P

I REALLY want to see Tangled!! I LOVE Disney-Aladdin is the best:)

Chocolate chip cookies make great fuel! Nah, I usually have PB+banana on toast...with a few chocolate chips thrown in there...

I'm curious to see how your run went after eating that. Yesterday I came home from school and felt super tired and crappy so of course I ate tons of chocolate covered pretzels and m&m's. Yeah my stomach KILLED during my run. I ended up stopping at 3 miles. FAIL

I LOVED TANGLED.

hi! I'm a new follower. figured I should leave a comment and stop just stalking. I love the blog - I am somewhat of a runner, usually only 25 miles a week, though, that's it, plus a lot of spinning! I'm trying to get up the guts to train for a half-marathon in september and your blog is great motivation! I am a teacher, too - sophomore English.

I can't eat ANYTHING before a run. if I truly need something, I go with string cheese.

Up, toy story (1 and 3), and lion king are my favorites...haven't seen tangled yet....but I pretty much love all disney movie so I guess I will give it a go! I am a disney freak - went there for the first part of my honeymoon and actually told my husband the other day that I don't want to go to disney with our future little ones because then we will have to do things they want to do and I won't get to have fun.

I dont really fuel up before a run, maybe thats my mistake!!

I was thinking it would be really great if you blogged about how you built up your speed and distance!(mostly cause I want to run like the wind, like you do!)

Thanks for the motivation everyday! Your the best, and I wish I looked that cute when I didnt try!! All your students must have a crush on you!!

The lack of a shower in the a.m. would definitely be good motivation . . . I don't like going for a run after I have showered.

 
At February 4, 2011 at 6:20 PM , Blogger EBURNS said...

Fuel for my long runs is usually 2 bowls of cereal and a banana before going to bed, then just waking up and getting it done. HOWEVER, my long runs are never over 12 miles.

Todays run after school was fueled by starbursts. it was not a long run, and I must say they worked perfectly.

Worst mistake before eating eggs, ohhhhhhh that was bad.

I had to laugh when I read this post! I ran my first marathon this past September and was to nervous to eat breakfast so I just "fueled" up on skittles and water through out the marathon. I could not understand why all my energy came crashing down at mile 19!

Bahaha! You're so funny with your pictures. Hot chocolate totally counts as hydration. ;)
I've yet to see Tangled. Cinderella has been and will always be my #1 Disney movie, followed closely by Up! And peanut butter toast and a banana is my perfect long run fuel!
Hope your run went well! :)

LOVED TANGLED! yes. . .i slober~cried and tried to hide that fact from everyone sitting around me. embarrassing.

crazy, but i get so NERVOUS before my longer runs that i can't eat much. performance anxiety, i guess. ha! anyway, the other day i had nothing to eat and was REALLY getting hungry after 10 miles and ran back to the car for a spoonful of peanut butter. started back out again and about YACKED after another mile. lesson learned here: don't eat DURING a run :O)

I laughed and cried...I blogged about it before and did a review ;) Sooo good.

I actually seen it in 3D and there were little kids reaching out to "grab the lamps/lights" in that one scene - they looked like marshmallows...I wanted to reach out myself!

LOVE the breakfast of champions!

By the way, you don't happen to know crazy Michelle from Utah, do you? I will feel like a tool if you happen to and I just asked you that but you seem way too great to know that "lady". Yikes.

I cant eat too soon before I run. I need to have at the very least an hour of digestion if I want to make it through. Unless its a banana. Bananas are totally fine even 30 seconds before I walk out the door.

I want to see Tangled, I think it looks so good! My all time favorite is, and always will be, The Little Mermaid. When I was little, I was certain I sang exactly like Ariel, and thought it was quite possible they stole my voice without me knowing it.

Loved this! Too cute. Tangled is hands down my favorite too! Loved it. And Little Mermaid is my favorite too....only Disney movie I owned as a kid and watched over and over and over. Can sing every song.

Dave and I loved Tangled!! I'm also a big fan of Mulan and Emperor's New Groove.

Fueling mistakes: eating an apple (gives me horrible cramps and makes me feel dizzy) or a banana (massive puking). Took me multiple times on both of those to figure it out. I's smarts.

I usually eat a slice of toast with pb.

My favorite Disney movie is Little Mermaid. I love it and watch it a lot still.

Skittles and hot chocolate sounds like excellent pre run fueling to me! I HAVE to eat before I run, but nothing specific. Cereal, cliff bars, cookies... they all work for me :)

I will gladly take your greasy ponytail! It goes great with that Banana Republic jacket!

LOVE #2.

Usually eat oatmeal or egg whites for breakfast but on race mornings I always eat a bagel with PB and a banana. I set my alarm to eat at 3 am for Boston and then ate again at 7:30. Always fun to hear your alarm go off and know it's telling you to eat-ha!

Is "Despicable Me" Disney or Pixar. I laughed so hard LOUD in the theater at that one with my kids. My kids were seriously embarrassed of me-what else is new!

Hope that run went awesome:)

I haven't seen Tangled because my boyfriend saw it without me! Yes..him and his 4 guy friends, who work at the movie theatre, saw this movie together. I was furious. and still like to bring it up. I'm glad you liked it though because I can't wait to see it when it comes out! I love Disney movies!

I haven't seen Tangled yet, but I want to! My favorite has to be Sleeping Beauty with The Little Mermaid in a very close second place. :)

And bananas are my favorite pre-workout food. I couldn't live without bananas..

Tangled was AMAZING! My sister and my mom and I all went to see it and we were laughing, crying, loving the whole thing!! We need to start a list of why we're virtual soul mates :)

My son is OBSESSED with Tangled. He is 4 and completely in love with that movie and Rapunzel in general. (I even know it comes out on DVD March 29th b/c my son made me check and see!) Toy Story 3 was awesome....and I (we my family) are looking forward to the new Cars movie in June. I tend to eat a white bagel before a run. I sometimes don't eat much besides a coffee...it's bad but my stomach can't handle much.

The faces you make crack me up! I wish we could be real life friends because you look like you have so much fun!!

My favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid and 101 Dalmations is a close second.

My favorite pre-run meal is an english muffin with pb and half a banana.

Mistake fuel: Grilled cheese & tomato soup
