I hope you all are having a great week and are keeping up with your daily workouts despite this crazy weather Lubbock has been throwing at us.
Today I found this interesting tip on what we should be fueling our body with during training.
Training Tip- found online at http://running.about.com/od/nutritionandhydration/tp/eatingrules.htm
Don't forget about protein.
Runners focus so much on consuming their carbs that their protein needs sometimes get forgotten. Protein is used for some energy and to repair tissue damaged during training. Protein should make up about 15% of your daily intake. Runners, especially those training for long distances such as marathons, should consume .5 to .75 grams of protein per pound of body weight. Good sources of protein are fish, lean meat, poultry, beans, nuts, whole grains, egg whites, low-fat milk, low-fat cheese and some vegetables.
Hope this helps! Have a great weekend and don't forget to check back Monday!
