As we enter the New Year a little heavier following the Christmas period, it’s traditional for many people to set goals to eat healthier and get fitter. This blog is not about how to achieve these goals, but for those who will be motivated to get out and start running, possibly with the resolution to run a marathon this year. Starting off is always the hardest bit and knowing how to train and what to eat to fuel your body to boost performance (and lose the Christmas weight) is sometimes the reason people lose their motivation to continue.

How is protein beneficial to endurance athletes?

Dietary protein is the key nutrient that helps the body grow and repair by stimulating muscle protein synthesis. Muscle is damaged as a result of strenuous exercise, therefore consuming sufficient protein helps athletes to recover from training, and allows them to train harder and more often in order to maximise performances.

Fuelling your body with the right energy and nutrients is fundamental for maximising performance. Eating a variety of foods, “a rainbow a day”, is the best way to ensuring your body receives an abundant supply of all nutrients allowing your body to perform, recover and develop after each training session.

After months of training, race day is finally here. You’ve put so much time and effort into your training, the last thing you want is to be unhappy with your performance when it matters most. Nutrition is fundamental in maximising performance and should never be neglected, in fact it should be prioritised on par with your training. What you eat and drink before and during a race should be practiced extensively in training prior to the event so your body is comfortable with any nutritional strategies.
