View Full Version : running on raw (:
04-17-2010, 04:09 PM
i've been lurking around the fitness forum for a while now without any posting, and since i've just completed my first two weeks fully raw (!), i'm finally looking to add some exercise into my daily routine.
I'm getting into running daily, but I'm not really one for strength training. Is it possible for me to achieve the look I want (long, lean, strong but not particularly muscled) without lifting weights?
(all this on raw of course!)

Hey there. I run 8k a day on 100% raw, I also do a very small amount of weights twice a week( but only to tone up my arms). I have found I am getting the toned lean look. I find doing heaps of sprint and hill training helps a lot.
I'm sorry that I don't have an answer to the original question- I just have another question! What do you eat to fuel your running (before you run)? I am a distance runner coming up on a marathon. Every time I go raw, my running suffers and I always feel weak and hungry on my runs even if I eat just before heading out! I rarely do any runs over 10 miles while eating raw, which is awful b/c I love distance running. I take raw iron/b-12 supplements and my diet includes heaps of fruit (especially bananas), plenty of greens and probably around 20% of calories from fat. Any tips?

hat are your exact fitness/health goals?
Lean, low weight, good #'s ( bp, cholesterol, sugar...)
if you want to look good " at the beach" ;) You can add some simple body eight exercises.
Pushups (can do sets with different hand placements, pullups as well as a variety of Ab and core work.
I have had success with ROLLUPS made with sprouts(seeds, grain as sliced veggies)
tahini and raw almond butter are also great fuel sources for enduance athletes.
Spread butter on asn apple, celery.
soaked chia seeds mixed with a dash of raw agave and lime juice makes a GREAT Gade type drink with broad mioneral and protein spectrum
