Thanks for reading the joggler blog.


1. How to get motivated after a day off « Just Your Average Joggler - September 1, 2006

[…] 4. Eat something. Research has shown that eating a little can raise your blood sugar, increase your energy and thus your motivation. Eating something 15 to 30 minutes before you workout will give you the motivating energy you need. You might consider one of the great candy bars reviewed the other day. […]

the nutritional content of each candy bar is so similar that i am not sure the relevance of this review. I don’t have a label in front of me, but I would guess that a Payday would contain many calories and fat, but the fat and calories would not be saturated or trans fat.

3. How to recover after a long run « Just Your Average Joggler - September 5, 2006

[…] Eat something. If you can stomach it (sometimes you can’t) eat something after your run. I like to have a candy bar but that’s just me. […]

Payday doesn’t make the cut because of its relatively high fat level (14g) and high calories (260). It’s high salt level is good for runners but the other factors keep it off the list.

You are correct that the nutritional information is pretty close. But the difference between the number 1 candy bar and the number 10 are pretty significant at least from a caloric standpoint.

Thank you! I have been trying to convince my closest friends that yes, in fact, Peanut M&Ms belong in the category of candy bars. It hits #1 on my list. I love em. We also share a number of others in our top 10s. One recommendation: mix Peanut M&Ms into popcorn. It is the best movie treat ever. At home, right when it comes out of the microwave, add in the M&Ms. They will melt just a little.

Best of luck with the joggling.

Peanut M&M’s are not a candy bar. Just because two runners say they are doesn’t mean they are. They are not a BAR. =)

Katie, sometimes the words transcend their specific meaning. Technically, Peanut M&M’s are not candy bars but they exist next to all regular candy bars and when it comes right down to it, each of the pieces could itself be a candy bar.

I mean technically, peanuts are not nuts even though they have the word ‘nuts’ in their name. They are actually legumes. But when a mistake in English is made for such a long time it becomes correct. Therefore, Peanut M&M’s are candy bars.

And I suppose this means you don’t think Pluto is a planet either.
