EAT SMARTER, RUN HARDER
Salads are Sweet Eat Smarter Run Harder is a 5 week system guided by a registered dietitian that teaches runners how to eat during their training cycle to minimize injury and improve performance without following a strict diet plan or spending hours in the kitchen.
I created Eat Smarter Run Harder because nutrition is such a key component and tool for runners during their training, but so few runners actually have their nutrition plan figured out.
I am here to help you become a more well balanced, well nourished runner so that you can hit your PR’s and reduce your risk of injury. I want to get you to the start line feeling 100% because I know you can do it, you just need a little bit of help, and I’m here to help you.
My first half marathon was over 6 years ago, and even though I did train with a group it was mostly just my bucket list challenge. I ended up running a 1:46, not finishing strong at all.
For the last 5 years I have ran short distance, on the tread mill or outside, by nothing more than 5km. This last year I decided to run another half marathon with a goal time of sub 140. After 15 weeks of training, and now later in life a proper nutrition plan, I ran my PB at 131.32 and came 6th place overall and finished strong. It was that drive and motivation of improving and feeling strong that pushed my to a new PB just a few months ago of 127.12 which put me as the first place female finisher in the 2018 WFPS half marathon.
When I look back on 6 years ago, my first half, to now, I followed the same training plan, so what made the outcome so different? And what I boil it down to is food, nutrition.
As runners we spend countless hours running and training for our next big race. During these training cycles we spend hours discussing with other runners and searching online what is the best food to eat to fuel your lifestyle and your running. Most of us, just sit down, we eat and we hope for the best, We try a bunch of new foods or new food combinations based on what our friends are doing or what we read online. But when it comes down to it, we are confused. And we all just want the same question answered.
We move onto figuring out what to eat during our race, the night before and the morning of, we take lots of time determining what to eat in these few hours. Yet we don’t make it a priority to figure out our food for the 15-18 weeks we are training, and that is the most important part.
You realize the tremendous value nutrition plays in your everyday life and your goals as a runner. You are here because you are tired of trial and error and searching the same information online and not getting any answers.
