Today's Weight: 162.6 (-3, 15.8 lbs to goal)
I read something interesting in Runner's World that I wanted to share. It's from the latest issue, page 91, in the article entitled, "The NEW Research".
Question: Eat breakfast before your run?
Fresh Take: Sure, being properly fueled helps you run better. And trying to run when your carbohydrate stores are depleted is hard--but not a bad idea if you're looking to shed pounds. Preliminary studies have found running on empty forces your body to burn more fat. But it does take a toll, so do it just a few times a week.
I love this! I have been trying to switch my workouts to mornings, at least on Monday-Thursday. I workout before breakfast on these days. I feel pretty okay when I do, but I often wonder if I should try and eat something beforehand. Well, I like this Fresh Take and will go with it.
On Fridays when I have more time and try and run longer, I usually eat breakfast first. I'll definitely keep doing what I've been doing.
