Playstation, softball, lying on the couch watching baseball all weekend. The one thing I gave up that I sort of miss is that I don't cook big, fancy elaborate gourmet meals anymore, mostly because I dont eat as much of the kinds of things I used to cook. I kind of miss stuff like foie gras, b├ęchamel sauces, Yorkshire pudding, giant porterhouse steaks with creamed spinach, and mashed potatoes that are equal measures of potatoes, butter, and heavy cream... Sorry, what were we talking about?

ingleshteechur - 2010-08-04 1:38 PM Several years ago while I was training for my first full marathon I gave up red licorice until I completed the race (dh had a big bag waiting for me at the finish!). I have also given up diet soda while training for a big race, most recently I gave up all sugar from Jan. 1-April 20 for a goal time half marathon. Does anyone else do this? What sorts of things have you given up in prep for a race & what's the longest you've gone without a favorite vice until completion of a race?

 

You mean you wasted the turtles I sent you?

This time around... I'm giving up Nutella. I ate too much of it before. But I think I'm overcompensating with peanut butter. Vicious circle!!

Foodwise, no, because I don't have weight issues and I eat a reasonably healthy diet (the occasional stack of French fries after a long bike ride excepted). But I have noticed I don't watch TV much, either because I'm too busy training or because I fall asleep on the couch in the evenings afterwards! Beyond that, close to the race, I try not to go shopping. In college I once missed the NCAA cross country nationals with a vicious case of the flu, which I'm pretty sure I caught from a sick person in line at the grocery store, so now I'm paranoid--I stock up on food, then avoid stores and other crowded indoor places the week before a race.
