Fuelling your training runs

Your muscles store a limited amount of energy. Depending on how fast your run, this stored energy will start to become significantly depleted after 90 minutes of running. Therefore, when training runs are longer than 90 minutes you need to think about planning your nutrition and fluid intake. Carbohydrate is your muscles preferred energy source. It is therefore vital that a large part of your diet involves carbohydrates. This doesn’t mean you have a free licence to eat as much chocolate, cakes, crisps and pizza as you like, but it does mean you can afford to eat more than your average sedentary person!
