Training for a marathon requires a lot of commitment and determination. It is one of the most challenging events you can put your body through, so getting your nutrition right is a massive bonus to support your training and keep you fit and healthy. As you edge closer to competition it’s important to have practiced your race day nutrition so you can maximise your performance when it matters most. Get the most out of your training and arrive at the start line with these practical nutrition strategies.

 

Fuel for the work required

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.

Can I build lean muscle and burn fat together? Do you have any nutritional/exercise tips for achieving this?

Goal setting is a vital part of every athlete’s training plan and overall performance outcome.

Goal setting varies from athlete to athlete and will likely change throughout the year to suit a particular season. Nutrition and training programmes will also be different for each athlete even though the desired outcome may be the same. This will be tailored to the individual’s body composition, training levels specific to that time of year, and personal preferences.

To get better at doing something you just need to keep practicing it. A simple phrase that could be applied to improving sports performance, and to an extent, this will work. If you’re training for a marathon you just need to keep running further, right?

This is all well and good but what if you’re a footballer, should you just play football? Or if you’re a javelin thrower do you just keep throwing a javelin?

Christmas is a time to relax, spend time with loved ones and most importantly eat lots of food! This ultimately results in many people letting loose until the New Year when they can begin a “detox” diet with the intention of losing their Christmas weight (plus more), and looking better than they did before. Don’t sacrifice your body this Christmas as you can maintain your physique simply by exercising regularly and applying a few smart changes to what you eat.

We’ve all experienced a cold winter’s morning when you look out the window and think, ‘I really don’t fancy training in that’. The thought of training in the cold, wet & wind is never pleasant, and for a lot of people, this is a good enough reason to stay at home and do nothing!

Whether it’s lashing down with rain or knee deep in snow, there’s always something you can do to work-up a sweat, keep fit, and boost your training goals. Training in the winter is not always about volume (how much you can do), but instead, you can train smarter to improve performance all year round.

The most anticipated competition in World Rugby is here in England – the Rugby World Cup. It is the tournament that every professional rugby player trains incredibly hard for, in hope of participating in, and lifting the cup in the final. Rugby players come in a variety of different shapes and sizes, therefore training and nutritional requirements must be tailored to each player. Playing position, total body weight, lean mass, fat mass, as well as personal factors such as anxiety, sleep quality, appetite and psychological factors (e.g. superstitions) must all be considered.
