If you have to, I wouldn't say more than 6 ounces a week the night of an especially long run. But not too much because it's slow to digest and high in saturated fats and cholesterol.

There's no amount you "should" eat. The less the better. There's nothing in factory farmed that meat you need to run fast (and lots of things you don't want).

Proteins and fats are digested quickly and easily in the stomach and small intestine.

What is digested slowly is the "healthy" stuff like green vegetables and whole grains. Humans can't digest that stuff and rely on friendly bacteria to ferment them instead.
