Learn from a professional runner, Sally McRae, about her nutrition and how to deal with traveling for races. (Part I Click here) (Click here PartII) Sally changed her diet to have more plants and healthy products. These allow her to quickly recover from multiple races and prevent overtraining. Interestingly, simple changes to your diet, like having more fruit and veggies, can also change your food preferences. As you switch to more healthy, plant loaded diet you will notice that you automatically eat less sugar and unhealthy foods. Providing appropriate amounts of high-quality proteins is especially important for the recovery. After long or high-intensity workouts your muscles need to repair and rebuild. Insufficient protein intake slows down training adaptation and keeping your muscles in a good shape. If you train several times a week, your body may need approximately 1.5 gram of proteins per 2 lb of your body weight! Make sure it comes from good sources.
