What to eat for a half marathon or marathon fueling tips (800x800)

Today is a special episode because it’s part of the Nutrition for Runners series. I reached out to my friend Steve Mackel because I wanted him to explain his strategy for fueling during a race. It’s the 10 – 30 – 45 method I use in races – and I realized I haven’t talked about it lately. But we ended up talking about carb-loading, what to eat before a race, what to eat during a race and after a race – and I didn’t want to hold out this information in case you’re running the LA Marathon this weekend or training for a race and can use this in training!

We met in 2013 on a project with the NYC Marathon and I was fairly newbie at the time and learned a ton! His advice is tried and true and things I

How to Carb-Load

The 10 – 30 – 45 fuel strategy for marathon and half marathon races is a great way to make sure you are drinking and eating enough. Set your watch to beep every 10 minutes / 30 minutes / 45 minutes and take in the fuel or liquid your body needs. The amount of water, electrolytes and food you need depends on your body, your race and goals. Practice this in training and learn your needs.

10  – 30 – 45 method to fueling for a race

10 minutes – drink water or your running drink of choice

30 minutes – electrolyte

45 minutes – 150 – 200 calories

Most gels are about 100 calories

My favorites…

I use Clif Shot Blocks and Mocha Gels. I usually drink whatever electrolyte drink is on the course for a race. During training runs or for hot weather races when I bring my own water bottle I drink Spark usually in Fruit Punch or Mango Strawberry.

What should you eat AFTER a half marathon or marathon:

Chocolate Milk

Look for something that’s about 3 to 1 or 4 to 1 carbs to protein ratio

Carbs are important to refuel your body.
