Food to fuel your training
Your training programme is important but getting your training diet right will help you go that extra mile. Good nutrition can make a difference to your performance and the right balance in your diet will give your body the fuel it needs, as well as helping it to grow and repair.
Key nutritional areas to think about
Your body needs protein to repair and grow muscle that is broken down during exercise. Regular exercise will mean you need a little bit more protein than usual.
When training for an event, carbohydrates are important to keep your body fuelled and your energy levels up.
