Food. It’s pretty much the only reason why I run. Alright, it’s not the only reason, but it is a big reason. The more I run, the more I can eat and not feel bad about it. Just kidding. Kind of. Ok, not really kidding at all.
What I’m trying to get at is this: food is important for runners.
Getting in nutritious food before runs, after runs and even on recovery days can make a world of difference when it comes to your running performance. The better I eat, the better I run, but figuring out what to eat, especially when you first start running or start training for a new distance, can be a daunting task. Should you eat before a long run or do fasted cardio? Coffee or no coffee? How big a meal? How long do you need to digest? GAHHHHH explosion of the brain.
Spare your brain from all that stress by tuning into this week’s episode of the Runners Who Wine podcast! This week, we’re talking about our favorite pre-long run fuel and our favorite new cookbook for runners, Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.
As you’ll be able to tell from this episode, Annmarie and I are slightly obsessed with this cookbook. The authors, Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky, are both badass runners and chefs, and they’ve put together a cookbook filled with quick-fix recipes for the hangry athlete.
You’ll find any recipe a runner could want, from quicky meals before heading out for a run to post-long run brunches all the way to dinners, snacks, desserts and natural sport drinks. I’ve made a few recipes already, including these so-good-I-had-to-put-a-bunch-in-the-freezer-just-so-I-wouldn’t-eat-them-all-at-once Superhero Muffins. Everything I’ve made so far has exceeded my expectations, and of course, everything would pair perfectly with a big ol’ glass of wine!
Shalane and Elyse also share budget-friendly shopping tips, meal plan and prep tips, running tips and more. I won’t go into all the details because that’s what the podcast is for, but I will tell you:
