🧇 Vafels are loved by our Coaching Team. This is a go-to for long run mornings where there may be an early start and we need something convenient. Pop a couple of these in the oven as an easy breakfast that cooks up while you get ready!
With a variety of fuel and electrolyte options to choose from, the above will help you to sift through the vast array of brands that exist and see what your preferred method of consumption is while running your next marathon! Not sure if you’re more of a gel, chew, or solid person? The above products will help you to decipher just that, all of them are easy on the stomach and wonderful in flavor (not too sweet either), making them the perfect fuel during a race.
In addition, some of the fueling options double as electrolytes (sodium), an added bonus in a race like a marathon, so all you have to focus on is getting in water at the hydration stations!
2. Fuel Before (prep) or After (recovery)
Dual purpose Kyoku shakes are a great quick breakfast option that we love to blend with banana, blueberries, and some plant-based milk or have as a recovery option with their awesome nutrient profile, helping to refill the tank immediately after a hard effort.
3. Additional Gear
This soft flask is a game changer. Not only does it assist you in terms of the amount of gels you can open and pour in one of these (up to 165g of carbs, depending on the brand!), but also in that it’s small, compact, and means you’ll have less to throw away during your race… ultimately meaning less sticky pockets!
4. Additional Recovery
Magnesium can be a great addition to include in your recovery routine. Pillar’s Pineapple Coconut Magnesium powder not only tastes great and is wonderful to have while relaxing at the end of a long day, but also contains three forms of magnesium to optimize your body's ability to take in and utilize it effectively.
