Health tips: How(what) to eat before a marathon….

Posted by aska I 28 August, 2010 archives 

Running a marathon is not child’s play. It is important to train well before the marathon as well as watch what you eat and keep fit. Here are a few quick tips on what to eat in the days leading up to the Marathon:

  • High Carb, Low Fat: Go far high-carbohydrate foods like cereals, breads, fruits and vegetables. Don’t consume excessively fatty foods – you will end having more fat than fuel in your body.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Don’t experiment with foods or diets that you have not tried before. Stick to the foods that you are used to eating, but cut down the fatty ones.
  • The night before the race, eat a bit more than usual, but not too much. It helps.
  • Eat a familiar breakfast one or two hours before the start of the race. Pasta is considered one of the best breakfasts to have before a marathon – but don’t have it if you are not already used to the food.
  • Drink lots of fluids on the Marathon morning. Tank up again about 15 minutes before the gun.
  • A cup of coffee in the morning usually helps if you are used to it, but too much caffeine can lead to water loss. Watch it.
  • And oh, don’t forget to put that smile to your lips all the time! :)

Good luck for the run. We’ll be cheering for you!
