How to fuel properly before a run

How to fuel properly before a run
Heather Nicholds, C.H.N.

When I go for my regular 30 minute morning run, I have a cup of water but not usually anything else. When I get into long runs (an hour or longer), though, I need to give my body some fuel to avoid crashing.

What I’ve found to work for me is either:

a. 1-2 medjool dates 30 minutes before running

b. 1 banana 60 minutes before running

You’ll need to experiment with what is going to work best for you. It’s a balance of digestion with energy. But I hope that gives you a good idea to start from!

Want to learn how to fuel your runs, recover faster, get your protein, and have a social life outside your training?

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.
