Running is one of the best stress relievers, AND it is awesome cardio! In order to get the most out of your run and be successful, you need to give your body the right fuel. Here are a few fueling tips to help you optimize your runs and fuel your body the right way.
- Before your run: Before your run you need to eat foods that are filled with natural sugars that are easy to burn for energy. Bananas are one of these foods! Plus they are a great source of potassium AND are delicious.
- During your run: If you are doing a long distance run, it is important to continually fuel your body so you do not run out of energy. Starbursts are great for this! They are easy to chew while running and pack a sugar punch.
- After your run: Eat some oats! Oats are rich in carbs and also packed with protein and fiber. Grab a bowl of oatmeal with almond milk and fruit for the perfect recovery snack!
