How are your energy levels?

You may have noticed that your energy levels are needing a boost due to the increased amount of running and the intensity that you are running at. As our energy requirements increase we need to think about how we are feeding the machine. This is where we need to start thinking like athletes. 

So what does it mean to think like an athlete?
An athlete thinks of nutrition as fuel for the machine that is their body. They look at their training for the day and think to themselves 'what do I need to do to make sure my body is 100% prepared for todays session so I can train to the best of my ability?.

This is the thinking we want to move towards when it comes to your nutrition before you train so here are some points to think about in planning for training: 

  • Plan 3 hours ahead of the session. A good question to use around your nutrition intake is 'what am I doing for the next 3 hours of my life?'  If you know that you are going to be sitting around watching tv or working at the office you would lower the energy food intake with less volume. But if you know that you have a run session you would want to get a good amount of energy in so that energy would be there when you need it. 
  • With the first point in mind try to get into the habit of having a small snack at lunch time and then having a bit more around 3pm on the days that you are training. You'll find that this energy will really help to lift you before a session.
  • Around 30mins before a session get a high sugar snack in. Don't go crazy but a few lollies or an energy gel would be great. This will give you a little bit of a boost as the session kicks in. 

Like all nutrition tips we need to learn how they work with our own bodies. Different people have different needs so there will be a bit of trial and error that comes with this. The best strategy is to start on the lighter side of things and if you feel you need more energy you add just a little bit more.

Another great tip is to have a wee nana nap in the afternoon if you can fit it in (!) even on Saturday's or Sundays - this is a luxury we know!

A simple question...why do you run?

  • Please make sure you sign in at each session, please "check in" with the coach taking your roll call. 

  • You are just about halfway through the programme!

  • Just a reminder about our Saturday sessions, we are running on open roads so please stay on the footpaths at all times and stick to the road rules 100%.

  • Just keep turning up to the sessions and looking at one session at a time on your programme ;o)

'If you have a 'bad' session, one that you struggle or find hard, don’t give up. They won’t be all the same, move on. Your next run may even be your very best. One bad day won’t make them all bad days.' – Wendy McBurnie
