Nutrition

Hello and happy Wednesday! Now is the perfect time to start training, and I have been taking full advantage of this time at home to do just that! Each morning I have been getting a workout in with the kiddos, and following the training schedule from my Running Guide to get back into a groove. While exercising and sticking to the guide is so so important, it is crucial to make sure your body has the fuel needed to carry you through each workout and recovery period! Here are some breakfast ideas to help start your day with a full tank:

Good nutrition is such an important part of both your training and recovery. Before a long run I eat a breakfast that is high in simple carbohydrates, because they are easily digested to deliver energy quickly to my muscles. I avoid fiber to prevent a possible upset stomach, and while I avoid saturated fat, unsaturated fat found in items like peanut butter can provide prolonged energy for long runs.
