I have a 10 mile race Sunday morning, which is good.
But have been invited to a family get together Saturday evening.

Venue - Chinese restaurant. :d

I shall not be partaking in booze of any kind. But what do I eat...?

No pasta in a Chinese. Any recommendations...?

Hi Dale, I think avoiding chilli dishes would be wise, or too much meat. A wise move not drinking too! I did a 10k a couple of years ago after a few too many drinks the night before, and my legs were like lead. Felt great by the end though!

Well Dale the snail.
I would go for plain boiled rice and some form of veggie dish.
I suppose your diet consists mainly of green veg anyway.:)

Why not have some pasta at lunch, whatever you fancy at the Chinese(it's a family do so you want to enjoy yourself after all) and a banana for breakfast.

i eat loads of carb 2-3 days before a big run, and only fruits in the morning of the running/race.

i think everybody has to find their own routine, what and when to eat.

good luck with the run:)

Well, the meal went quite well as did the race. 10 mile multi terrain, hills, grass, mud and water. Loved it.....

Had soup, then a prawn dish with noodles. Was good...!

No booze or dessert. Not so good...!

Did consider the 'Spicy Noodles', thought they may make me run faster (like the wind).
