In this hands-on small group discussion, Chrissy Carroll, runner and dietitian, will address the ins and outs of sports nutrition for runners and triathletes. Together this group will discuss basic strategies for healthy eating to support an athlete’s training, as well as tried and true tips for pre-exercise meals, exercise fueling, and recovery nutrition.
This session is ideal for both new runners and triathletes, as well as those veterans who have been racing for years. Chrissy will share research-based strategies that improve performance – but as your body’s own best expert, the discussion will welcome sharing of success strategies that have worked for you.
You are also encouraged to come with questions that you have about sports nutrition. Wondering if carb loading actually does anything? Does beet juice really help in a race? How the heck do you avoid the porta-potty mid-race All questions are welcomed! Feel free to leave Chrissy a question in the comments and she’ll come prepared with your answer.
Plan to walk away with nutrition tips to implement in your own training as well as helpful advice you can share on your blog or social platforms.
