Overview

Nutrition for Marathon Running describes how the running body works and explains why performance in a marathon is so highly influenced by what a runner eats and drinks. The special dietary requirements of vegetarians, females, veterans and diabetic runners are all covered as well as information about running in hot and cold climates. By the end of the book, readers should be in no doubt just how important diet is in the training for, and running of, a marathon. The author addresses the following questions and many more: How can I keep hydrated on long training runs? What is the best thing to have for breakfast on the morning of the marathon? Are sports drinks really better than plain water? Why do I always seem to get a cold after running a marathon? What happens at the drinks station on route? The marathon is in the morning but I do all my training in the evening: will this matter?
