The Athlete’s Kitchen For Weight-Sensitive Runners: Food for Thought

Written by Nancy Clark MS RD CSSD on 04 February 2016.

     Nancy ClarkWhile many athletes yearn to be leaner and lighter, some athletes have to be leaner and lighter. As a runner, your sport does not have weight classes (as does wrestling, light-weight rowing), but the sport is sensitive to weight. Hence, you may put pressure on yourself to achieve a weight that might defy your genetic physique. Some runners can achieve the desired lightness healthfully; others struggle with poor energy, lethargy, and depressed mood.

Affirm Your Greatness!!!

Written by Richard Ferguson, Ph.D. on 01 February 2016.

Maybe it occurs out on a training run. A small voice inside your head asks the question, “Have I done enough training to get through my marathon?” Or maybe it occurs late in a race when that little voice says, “I don’t know if I can make it to the finish” or “I don’t think I can keep up this pace”.  Maybe it occurs when you first get out of bed. The voice in your head says, “just go back to sleep; training is a hopeless waste of time”. Whenever it does occur, that little voice is slowly eroding your confidence and putting you and your running down. Well, I’m saying it’s time to shut that little voice up once and for all and affirm your greatness as a runner.
