Training Mode = ON!!!

How was everyone's raya celebrations? I'm sure all of us are pretty stuffed with the usual suspects on the dining table (lemang, ketupat, rendang, biskut raya)... ;)

I had a weekend retreat with my beloved family at Port Dickson after visiting my relatives in Masjid Tanah, Melaka...

Of course I didn't forget my running shoes ;)

So now, I'm back and fully recharged (I think :P) to train for the remaining days that I have left for my first full marathon, which is like less than a month to go... Erk!

I need help with the food intake department - what would be the best meal(s) and drink(s) for breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner that's good for your tum tum and body when you're training for your first marathon?

Appreciate the suggestions! :)


  1. Loads of carbs, plenty of fluids, less junk. Lemang, ketupat, rendang definitely no no. I'd recommend vit C and iron tablets, too. Vit C helps with iron absorption and wards off cold (last thing you need when training for a marathon is reluctant rest due to colds!), iron gives energy to get through high mileage while juggling your real life.

    All the best! Keep posting your training stories, might inspire me too!

  2. kak haza: thanks for the tips! and will do though the internet at home ada moodswings la ;)

  3. good luck training! my advice is : don't try anything new the few days before and on marathon day itself!

  4. julin: thanks for the luck! and don't think i'll have the time to try anything new since i only have 3 weeks to train now! ;)
