Subject: Vegeterian plus distance running?
Weight: 173, 5'9.5"
miles/week: 90 running, about 5 hours of biking/week as well (I'm a bike commuter). Slowly bumping up my mileage. Looking to add about 2-3 miles a week until I'm in a good spot. Don't plan on competing until fall 2013 at the earliest. No point racing unless I'm going to RACE.
Running since Jan 1st. Used to do a lot of other sports where endurance was important (running as cross-training, never as competition), got a career ending injury on my shoulder. Few years of injury+surgery+recovery. Starting to love running now that it's less slow and miserable
I started feeling sick/overtrained about 2 weeks ago. I was a vegetarian. I didn't want to mess with it, and I've eaten beef almost every day since then. I feel much better now.
Any way to make vegetarian diet+distance training work? I eat lots of oats/almonds/spinach, but maybe it's just not doable without supplements?
