Default Distance Running Diet

Hi all

I currently weigh 178lbs, I'm 5ft 11" and I'm training for a 10k run in a few weeks and for half marathon in March. Major plan is to complete London Marathon but just wanted to ask for best diet. I run 3 times a week between 35k and 40K. I do weights, core exercises and punch bag routine aswell with occasional bike session. My training plan is all sorted out for my races but I'm currently eating loads of Carbs on a daily basis.

Whats the best diet say over a week for distance running? I'm not worried about times to eat as I have that sorted but just wanted to know if it might be worthwhile chucking in a NO Carb day into my week?

I'll check that out now.

I've got a 10K run 18th November coming up, then half marathon 3rd March 2013 followed by Full Marathon on 28th April. I'm aiming to run the 10k in low 50's, the half marathon in sub 2 hours and then sub 4 hours for full marathon.

Those are great goals Dave . Loads of carbs are great, especially at your weight, but don't forget the protein - especially after a long run. It will really help you recover and get stronger. Best of luck and we'll be seeing you in the running thread
