Eating Right to Run Faster
|January 20, 2011||Posted by admin under Healthy Eating|
I’ve recently started training to run my second half marathon in Atlanta on March 20th. I ran my first back in December, had so much fun that I decided to it again. When I was training for my first race, I wasn’t exactly the model example of how to eat right and train properly for great results. This time around, however, I’m changing my ways because I want to be faster.
Since I want to be faster than I was in my last race, I have been doing a lot of reading on how to eat right to be a better runner/athlete. So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite websites I read for nutrition and healthy eating tips.
- Active.com is probably my go-to website. I follow them on twitter, get their email newsletters and visit their website. They have a wealth of information.
- Livestrong.com is one that I tend to forget about but when I remember it, I’m glad I did. They too have a great amount of information.
- Runnersworld.com is another favorite of mine, because I am a runner. I think their nutrition tips apply to anyone trying to meet their fitness goals, not just runners.
- Coolrunning.com is another website I like as well. Their Couch to 5k training program is one of the most popular running programs out there.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on eating right for fitness and where you go to find tips. If you leave a comment on this blog post telling me what your favorite training website is – or where you like to get your nutrition tips from, we’ll send you a free Fresh from Florida sports towel as a thank you!
