Vegan Runners' Nutrition Workshop

Fuel your runs, recover faster, get your protein, and have a social life outside your training! with @heathernicholds, Registered Holistic Nutritionist

Fuel your runs, recover faster, get your protein, and have a social life outside your training!

Have you ever had that crash in the middle of a run? Where your legs aren't necessarily tired, but you just can't move them anymore? Or you struggle at the end of a race and are crazy exhausted at the finish line?

That's what can happen when you don't fuel yourself properly.

Have you ever wondered...

  • What should I eat before and after my workouts and training runs?
  • What about races – what should I eat from 2 days before? The night before? Morning of?
  • What should I have during longer runs and races to get fuel and hydration?
  • How do I maximize water absorption? Should I get electrolytes, carbs, sports drinks?
  • How much protein do I need, and how can I get it from vegan foods without getting too much carbohydrate, and without eating tofu all the time?
  • How do I maintain energy levels when I feel like there is absolutely nothing left in the tank, and your social life is taking a hit because of your training?
  • How can I maintain—and even gain—weight when I eat really healthy vegan foods and am active all the time?

I've asked myself all of these questions. I'm a runner. I'm vegan. I was a national-level competitive team figure skater for half of my life. I do a lot of yoga and bodyweight workouts to build strength.

I'm also a nutritionist. So I've researched the answers to all of these questions, and made vegan sports nutrition a personal specialty in my continuing education, to help with my own training. Because there isn't much out there on this topic.

There's a lot about vegetarian sports nutrition, but the advice relies heavily on dairy and eggs. And there are lots of vegan ultra-endurance runners and bodybuilders showing the extreme side of vegan athlete nutrition. But there isn't much info specifically for more moderate (ahem, normal) vegan runners and athletes. I'm talking about runners doing 5km to marathon distances, or athletes who work out 3-5 times a week.

If you're looking for practical and useful info and advice to fuel your training and races, avoid the crash, get the right nutrients and protein, join me for a vegan runner's nutrition workshop. It'll be super specific and jam-packed with all the best nutrition info, plus tips from my experience and perspective as a runner, athlete, nutritionist and vegan.

Join the workshop

NB: This workshop is NOT really for elite athletes, ultra-endurance runners or competitive boydbuilders. I have info, but not practical experience, on that level, so this workshop is for runners in the 5k-marathon range, and athletes who want to get their best performance and minimize recovery time through plant-based nutrition.

Special Bonuses:

*Exercise Program

A full week's exercise plan including running, a post-run stretch/strength routine for short run days, bodyweight strength workouts, and yoga sessions. Real-time videos so we can work out together.


*How to Get Vegan Protein Book

A complete guide to getting more than enough protein from plants, so that you can answer the questions you may get when wearing vegan clothing while running. Also 17 high protein vegan recipes, including homemade protein bars.


*Group to share and ask questions

No one is an island, and we all work better together. You'll get exclusive access to a members' forum, where you can ask me any questions you have about running nutrition, protein or healthy eating in general, and also connect with other members, so you have a group of like-minded individuals to talk to about your challenges and successes.

Client Success Stories

"I've struggled with the vegan lifestyle because I really don't think I knew how to eat a well rounded diet. Because I run twelve miles a week and lift weights I need to eat a balanced diet. There are so many wonderful vegan cookbooks out there...I've bought so many!...but I don't know how to plan a day's worth of food. Thank you for being a great teacher. I'm kind of getting a hang of what I should be eating."

FAQs

"How long will I have access to the materials?"

Forever! You can download all the videos, so you can keep them forever. Your access won't expire, so you'll be able to go into the site as long as I continue to run it, which I plan to do indefinitely. I'm not going to say 'forever' because that's a lot to live up to... That would also involve post-mortem planning, which I'm not quite ready to think about. But pretty much as long as I'm alive and getting your support and feedback on this site, I'll keep it going.

5% to cancer research

The Terry Fox Foundation has a single mission: to fund innovative cancer research.

Terry Fox was 19 years old when he was diagnosed with bone cancer in 1977 and had his leg amputated. Terry was so overcome by seeing the suffering of other cancer patients that he decided to run across Canada to raise money for cancer research.

He ran an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) every day for 143 days with one leg and one artificial leg (which was not adapted for running). He called his journey the Marathon of Hope.

Terry was forced to end his run on September 1, 1980 when the cancer spread to his lungs. Terry died in June 1981. His dream continues with an annual Terry Fox fundraising run in cities across Canada and internationally.
5% of your registration will be donated to The Terry Fox Foundation.
