When I was training for a marathon I fell for what all my friends were saying "eat carbs", "eat pasta" -- well, yes, for ONE or 2 meals before a long run.... but after a long run, and all the rest of the time, make sure you get 30-40% of your calories from PROTEIN. Protein is the building block for bones, muscles, joints, healing, eyesight, and a host of other things. If you happen to be eating too many carbs, esp. pasta carbs, that can exhaust you all by itself!
