Nutrition Info For Runners

Hi everyone, this is Andrew Lengerich from AID Performance Physical Therapy. Today, I wanna talk about nutrition for runners, and the issue of malnutrition. So as runners increase their mileage, it’s really important to make sure that you’re continuing to get enough fuel for your body in order to be able to have good runs, recover from your runs, and then also to stop breakdown of tissue, and allow for proper healing of the body. What happens when you don’t get enough nutrition is runs tend to be… you tend to be more fatigued, or harder time pushing yourself, and giving the most out of your training. I’m not advocating for eating whatever you want, and going out to eat fast food, but to make sure that you’re getting good healthy nutrients for your body, in order to accommodate for the fact that you’re increasing your mileage. It’s really important when you’re trying to get the most out of your training. So that’s my tip for today, everybody have a great one.
