I’ve got Jen Lamplough back on the show this week to discuss all things fuel and food! We reached out to our Facebook group for some questions around this topic and we’re here to give you our answers. Jen is a chef and knows a lot about nutrition, and I definitely learned a lot from this conversation, so I’m excited for you guys to learn some tips around how to make your runs the best they can be when it comes to fueling before, during, and after.
Fuel is crucial to your energy levels and making sure your training runs and race go as well as you want, but knowing what fuel works best for you can be tricky, so we’re offering some of our suggestions. Commercial running fuel isn’t necessarily always the best option, and so it’s no surprise if you find yourself at your wits’ end when looking for what feels right for you.
Join us this week as we dive into some awesome questions around what to eat before and after your runs, why cutting out sugar might be a good idea, how to eat without cutting calories or macros, and what might be going on if you don’t think you’re optimally fueling your body.
