I am training for my first half in February and I am having a hard time with eating properly to train at my best ability. I am not trying to lose weight during this, but I also do not want to gain weight either.
I usually eat around 1400 calories and run 2-3 times a week... Now I am running 3 times week with one long run, and possibly a day or 2 weight training or doing other cardio. On days that I run I do eat extra calories, but I am not sure how much more I should be eating to keep my energy up especially for long runs. Is it ok to eat a lower amount on days that I do not run, or should I be eating a more consistent amount each day of the week?
Can anyone send some advice or even a sample training diet? It would be greatly appreciated!
