      Barb, everyone is different. For me, it's two days before that really matter. I ran late afternoon (out at 4:30) and hadn't eaten much today, but I had a decent day of eating yesterday. I tend to stick to old school cooking - fruits, veggies, pasta, meat and potatoes kind of cooking - and I don't eat bread or a lot of fats or sauces. Being lactose intolerant helps with that (although I do miss pizza!). Last night, I had pasta for dinner with veggies and chicken. That's pretty typical.

      Great job Cynthia...have you ever looked into alkalizing your body more? Study the PH Miracle by Dr. Robert Young...www.phmiracleliving.com and also AVOID GMO's at ALL costs...just a thought!

  6. RUN
    good River Glen and home 12 km 00:58 07:43 pace
