the legs are starting to feel a little better after putting them through their paces today. decided to i need to put in some intensity but i wasn't sure what i was going to do until i started.
i'm also trying to keep my weight steady with the big run this weekend and i am going about that by making sure that i take in a big post-workout feed of carbohydrates to keep up my glycogen stores. i'm trying to add any more stress to my system than is necessary. i still haven't worked out how many carbohydrates i need to take in after a session but as i either run with a garmin or polar hr monitor i am using the calories used as a guideline and trying to replace about 50-75% of my energy output. how much fat would i use to fuel an hour workout at say 70-80% heart rate max. i'm sure there is a formula or calculator out there somewhere. i just don't have the time to find it right now.
