Running is one of today’s healthiest ways to help maintain your body’s physical well-being. It is one good cardiovascular exercise that helps keep good circulation and a healthy heart.
Everybody needs proper nutrition and a healthy diet. This requirement becomes more vital for people who are into health activities like running. This is amplified further for runners who are also into competitions or have special dietary needs.
If we are taking about running nutrition then I can give you one super food that ticks all the boxes - Bananas!
Eaten before a race they are easy to digest and offer slow releasing energy that should keep you going through the first 90mins of any run.
Eaten after a race they are a great way of replenishing your muscles with much needed carbohydrates and if you eat with something like peanut butter, or some kind of protein sandwiches then the carbohydrates in the banana will help increase muscle uptake of protein.
