Remember, you need to fuel correctly for your training runs and in the lead up to the race, as well as ensuring you are hydrating correctly. Check out some of our tips below.
5 Healthy Eating Tips
1. Fruit and Vegetables
Make sure you’re getting the right nutrients and vitamins by eating plenty of fruit and veg.
Food such as eggs are a really good source of protein and will help your muscles to recover after your training.
Eating pasta is a good low-fat, slow-release energy option to help fuel your runs. It’s also important to eat some carbs within half an hour of your training to help replenish your glycogen stores.
4. Cereal Bars
These can be a good, quick snack option – just make sure they’re not filled full of sugar.
Don’t forget to hydrate!! Before, during and after your run you should ensure you are taking on-board enough water to keep yourself hydrated. Even though it feels cold outside, you will still sweat and lose water during your training so make sure you drink plenty of water.
