Editor’s Note: To help you get ready for the Broad Street RunEinstein Healthcare NetworkDietitian Theresa Shank, RD, LDN, has compiled some of the best advice on how to power up your body for this years race.
PRE-EXERCISE NUTRITIONAL GOALS
Drink at least 8-16 ounces of water one hour before your run.
Consume a carbohydrate rich snack or meal before exercise to top off muscle stores. More coverage Walk away from excess running, researchers say
In conjunction with these carbohydrate foods, add in a little protein. A tablespoon of almond butter or a handful of nuts create a perfect pairing to keep you going. Soft-boiled eggs, a string cheese or yogurt are great protein additions as well.
Theportionof your pre-workout snacks needs to be in proportion with the level of physical activity that you are going to participate in. Since you are participating in a 10-mile run you will want to eat a full meal with at least 50 grams of carbohydrate two to three hours before the run and then a snack that contains at least 30 grams of carbohydrates 30 minutes before the start of the race, such asa small piece of fruit, sports drink or gel pack.
Thetimingof your workout and pre-fuel eating is important. Your goal is to make sure you have some carbohydrates and a little bit of protein in your system about 30 minutes to one hour before your workout. When you are fueled up with the proper, slow-burning, energizing foods, you are more likely to show up and be effective with your time.
Choose pre-exercise meals that are low in fat and fiber to ensure optimal digestion.
Sports drinks with 4-8 percent of carbohydrate (Look at Daily Value Percentage)provide a convenient vehicle for both maintaining hydration and consuming carbohydrates.
