Food & Nutrition

Have you thought about what you eat before you run or as part of a diet when training for an event? Many runners use a food diary to record what they eat, such as the template below.

Recording what you eat helps runners to reflect what nutrients I might be missing and to amend that for  the next week.

We’re all guilty of a snack that consisting of cake ! biscuits etc, when really we should snack on products  such as nuts, raisins, fruit, red pepper, carrot and hummus etc with some protein that provide real health  benefits

Many running websites provide ideas and tips on good diet and nutrition:
