West Highland Way Race presentation night

Nutrition presentationFor anyone brave enough to take on the challenge of the West Highland Way Race, good on ya!

The organiser’s held a little ‘inspiration and information’ evening last week and I was lucky enough to be invited along to talk nutrition.

I love the running community and, especially for a race such as this, everybody really clubs together to get through.

The West Highland Way Race is a 95 mile run from Milngavie to Fort William, with seriously hard climbs. For more information, check out their website…http://westhighlandwayrace.org/

WHWRIt was certainly my biggest talk to date and in a lovely venue in Stirling.

Some of the key points I covered were:

  • why we train and how diet influences it
  • preparing your nutrition plan
  • recovery
  • hydration
  • beetroot juice

You can get hold of my slides on the website and the organiser’s have also released a podcast of the evening for anyone who missed it or wants to listen again.

If you need any help preparing a diet plan for endurance training or races or just getting the basics right then please don’t hesitate to send me an email on [email protected]
