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.

Food diary

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:

If you have doubts about joining the club, why not come along to our club evening. Our club run is on Tuesday evening. In line with Covid-19 Government Guidance and UK athletics guidance the club organises a series of socially distant runs in small groups. Each group runs at a different pace, accommodating runners of all abilities. We meet at the Bay Centre from 6pm, with each group setting off at different times. Please keep an eye on our Harriers Facebook page as club runs are published weekly and some groups set off from alternative locations to minimise social gatherings at the Bay Centre. Our Thursday evening Fitness class, normally held at Highbridge Community Hall is postponed until its Covid safe to do so. Upon the resumption of our fitness class, you will be most welcome to join as the sessions are designed for members at all levels of fitness.
