Performance Nutrition for Runners

Runner's World Performance Nutrition for Runners: How to Fuel Your Body for Stronger Workouts, Faster Recovery, and Your Best Race Times Ever Runner's World Performance Nutrition for Runners: How to Fuel Your Body for Stronger Workouts, Faster Recovery, and Your Best Race Times Ever by Matt Fitzgerald


My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
This was MUCH more what I was looking for than The Runner's Diet (also put out by Runner's World.) Where it was focused on someone who was getting into running specifically to lose weight, Performance Nutrition for Runners was written for established runners looking to fuel correctly to improve their running. I really appreciated all the info on fueling and hydrating while running, pre-race, and recovery eating. I was hoping for a little more on everyday eating - maybe some general meal plans and such. I think, though, with the knowledge I've gleaned from this book, I can do a pretty good job setting up a plan for myself.

Yeah I thought it was pretty good as well. It's a shame that his other books stink HAHA (Actually they don't stink they're just eehhh ok)
