Nutrition for Runners – how to fuel and refuel your body – Thursday 7th March 2024 7pm

We are delighted to welcome Hannah Trotman Sports Nutritionist to talk to us on all things nutrition! She will be covering:

  • The basics of nutrition e.g. macronutrients and why they are important for performance and recovery, particularly with a focus on carbohydrates for fuelling and protein for recovery.
  • Signs and symptoms of RED-S and the negative implications this can have on health and performance. She will highlight some key micronutrients too e.g. iron for exercise capacity and general health, calcium and Vitamin D for bone health. Nutrition across life stages e.g. growth and development during teenage years, menopause and bone density loss as we age.
  • How to fuel runs and refuel afterwards – practical snack and meal ideas, carbohydrate requirements, importance of hydration including supplements.
  • Any other topics the members would find useful.

This will be at 7,00pm, in place of regular training, upstairs at the King Alfred’s Head.
