I don’t write too often about diet here on Strength Running
“Most runners have terrible diets. You know it’s true”. Jason Fitzgerald’s 2011 blog resonates across the intervening 4 years when I am writing this in November 2015, and is worth the re-reading (Jason Fitzgerald, SR Strength Running: http://strengthrunning.com/.
At some time after 25 we have to take stock of what we are doing to ourselves – food, drink, exercise, relationships, work. The extra we eat and what we drink catches up as we slow down, and fail to adjust our intake.
And then we get side tracked into procrastination by all the detail, is that why you are here? So please, do learn, remember there is no one best diet or programme. It is something that you have to be willing to do, and can integrate into your lifestyle.
When you listen to, or read his blogs, Jason emphasises the simple and the practical. You do not have to be an athlete at his level to adapt to his ideas. However, by picking up what appeals to you and letting go of the habits you have identified as needing to change, you are moving ahead and changing your world, and your performance, if that is your goal.
