Hi, I'm Petra and this is my weight loss/fitness blog.
I used to be on Weight Watchers from January 2011 to October 2012, dropping approximately 45 lbs. I've made the transition from unhealthy and unhappy to athlete and this is my journey to becoming a healthier, happier me. I frequently post about my exercise (mostly running, yoga and lifting), the foods I eat, recipes I liked and my daily struggles. You'll also find the occasional tree hugger post, (travel) photography or anything else I find worth remembering and collecting.
I follow most blogs back that follow me. However, I do stay away from blogs that promote EDs, unhealthy methods of weight loss or negative body image.
Feel free to say hi any time!
Took me a couple of days to figure it out, but I realized that when miles 11 & onward during my 13.5 mile run felt so ridiculously hard, guess what, I hit the wall. This never happened to me before and while I know it’s not a good practice, I never fuel during long runs. I always have water with me if I plan on running 6 miles or more, but I never carry Gu or any other type of energy source.
I’ve been wondering if/how you guys fuel during long runs? When? How often? What do you eat? I’ve particularly been looking into making my own energy bars/balls to eat. Does anybody have a good recipe?
