Runners have many questions about how to fuel for top performance. The Internet abounds with answers – but how do you know what's valid? Here are some trust-worthy answers, based on research presented at the American College of Sports Medicine's Annual Meeting (May 2018; www.ACSM.org).

FUELING DURING
Q. Do elite athletes consume the recommended 30 to 60 grams of carbohydrate (120 to 240 calories) per hour during moderate/high intensity training?

Likely not. A soccer study indicates the players barely consumed half that amount (17 g carb (~70 calories)/hour of moderate intensity training and only 14 g (~55 calories) per hour during high intensity training). All athletes, including distance runners – want to experiment with consuming the recommended amount of fuel during extended exercise. You'll likely learn you can have greater stamina and endurance at the end of your long runs – and that can be your winning edge.

jf3597c.jpgHow To Turn A “Bad Workout” Into A “Good One”
I was looking forward to my running retreat in Carmel CA after 3 weeks of non-stop travel.  Intuitively I felt that a good run would “wake up” the circuit in my brain that improves motivation.  But it wasn’t happening.  During the first 10 minutes my legs felt heavy and un-responsive--the switch wasn’t turning on.  I thought about turning around.  But then I remembered what I learned when researching for my book MENTAL TRAINING:  If you activate the human brain with a “checklist” of cognitive thoughts and questions, and make strategic adjustments, a bad run can turn into a good one.
