Marathon Training Meals (Week 3 of 13)

Since I was on vacation to Seoul for most of the week, I fell off the bandwagon a bit when it came to eating a moderate and clean diet.  Although Korean food is relatively healthy, I probably indulged more than I would if I were home.  Also, too much junk food and I didn’t eat as many fruits and vegetables as I would have liked.  Definitely need to improve this week.

Interestingly, there was little change in my weight.  In fact, it is a little lower than last week.  Although I ate more than I usually do, I did do a lot of walking while in Seoul, which may have balanced my calorie intake with energy expenditures.  So I’m still in a comfortable weight range of 140 to 145 lbs.

Start – 144.4 lbs (65.5 kg)

Week 1  – 141.5 lbs (64.2 kg)

Week 2 – 143.5 lbs (65.1 kg)

Week 3 – 143.1 lbs (64.9 kg)

Here’s a list of the core things I ate:  Rice, natto, vegetables, bananas, apples, sushi, curry, noodles, whole wheat cereal, almonds, dried mango, eggs, chocolate, tofu, lots of Korean food, donuts, breads, tea, coffee and tap water.

Below are pictures of what I ate all week, although I forgot to photograph a couple meals.


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
