Now that we’re a little past the annual fad diet craze, let’s have a serious discussion about good nutrition. While I’m gearing this toward runners, a lot of it applies to non-runners. Why? While runners have some unique needs, good nutrition is good nutrition.
To be clear, I’m not going to offer specific advice. I’m going to speak in generalities. This is because I am not a nutritionist or registered dietician and I won’t pretend to be a nutrition expert. If you want specific diet advice, see someone who is qualified and don’t get your advice off the internet.
I didn’t get the usual month end post up last week due to the holidays. But I do have one link I want to share this week instead because it’s a topic that I feel very strongly about and I believe there is a lot of bad advice on it.

I created HillRunner.com many years ago because I wanted to give something to the running community that gave so much to me. While I strive to do that every day, I keep finding that, the more I give to the community, the more it gives back. I didn’t expect that but it’s how things have worked out.

Many of us have recently finished our racing for the year. Whether an October marathon or fall season of shorter races, you’ve probably had ups and downs, good points and bad points.
How do you go over everything that has happened and glean out information that you can use for next year?
I recently discussed how to handle a bad race and how to get useful information out of that race but what about a good race? What about your training? There’s a lot more to think about and, surely, some of it went well while some didn’t. Continue reading “How to review your racing season”
