Pre-Post Workout Fuel for the Bod

Posted on

As part of my half marathon training, I am going to focus on two things that usually go to the wayside: strength training, and properly fueling before and refueling after my runs.  Since today is my first official half marathon training run, I started out with a smoothie with a little granola on the bottom.  Fitsugar had a great article about what to eat pre and post workouts.  It suggests that 2-3 hours pre-workout (that’s me!) eat a meal of around 300-400 calories that includes fat, carbs, and protein.

In my pre-workout smoothie:

  • 2/3 Banana
  • 1/2 Cup Strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup Almond Milk
  • 1 tsp Peanut Butter (protein/fat/carbs)
  • 1 Handful Spinach
  • A Splash of Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Packets of Splenda
  • Pinch of Xanthum Gum
  • 1/4 Cup Granola (protein/fat/carbs)

Now you see 'em...

Now you don't!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Post-workout, it says to refuel with a mix of carbs and protein, so I will pack a snack…not sure what though!  Hope you all have a wonderful day!
