I'm the same way. If something tastes good, I eat/drink it. If it feels good, I do it. I've never avoided any specific foods or beverages when I am running, but then again, I feel like I am always running so if I did, life would be pretty boring. My pre-marathon dinner last Saturday was a big plate of fish and chips and I washed it down with four Two Hearted Ales before stumbling back to my hotel room to stay up late to watch the end of the Eagels/Panthers game. I type all this as I sit at my desk eating a couple donuts and drinking a large iced coffee with extra sugar.
I used to wear an HR and pace monitor but never bothered to actually look at it when I was working out. For me it was a waste of money.
Of course, all that being said, I'll probably never BQ. But I'm OK with that.
