ACTIVE RECOVERY: On the Go Essentials with Ciara Lucas
On-the-go and on the move…if you’re training for a marathon, you’ve got to train smart and prioritize your energy and hydration! Here are Ciara’s top tips for staying in the game:
*Bring fuel on the road–try gels, chews, or any portable snack that fits your training needs and goals. Runners generally need 30 to 60 grams of carbohydrates each hour that they are running longer than 75 minutes.
*Don’t forget to hydrate–add an electrolyte supplement to give your water a boost. No matter the duration of your workout, you need to replenish electrolytes after sweating.
*Find what works then stick to it– the process is trial and error, but when you find what works, stay consistent!
