Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #012 -- Getting Close...


February 5, 2009

Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !

Over the past two months I have been preparing for some autumn races (I am in Australia, where it is currently summer). So, currently I am building my base by doing lots of easy running.

I can't wait to get into some faster running soon!

But I know that base building is a very important aspect of running training, so for the moment I just concentrate on getting in enough mileage.

Wish to learn more about building your base? Then check out my page about base running.

When not running, I have been working on an exciting new development:

=============================================
GETTING CLOSE.... BUY MY SITE!

Following lots of requests from website visitors and readers of this newsletter I am currently working on putting my website pages into an ebook.

This takes quite a bit of time, but bear with me, I should be done within the next week or so.

I was a bit shocked to find out that over the last few years I have created over 250 solid pages of running training information!

It's going to be a great guide to beginning and more experienced runners with all the beginner running tips, running training articles, heart rate monitor running pages, etc. all in one easy book.

I will send out a message as soon as the ebook is available.

There will be a small charge for downloading the ebook. But the good news is that you, my faithful subscriber, will of course get a discount via a special link in the newsletter!

=============================================
RUNNING TIP: EATING AND DRINKING AFTER YOUR RUN
After your run it is important to get in some food and fluids to restore your energy levels.

Drink Water
Drink some glasses of water or juice after your run.
If you want to get very scientific about it, you could weigh yourself before and after the run and then drink about 20-24 fl oz water for every 1 lb you lost in weight.

However you can also just drink a few good glasses of water to quench your thirst and not pay too much attention to the neurotic details!

Eat Some Carbs
It is also important to get some carbs in, e.g. some fruit or an energy bar pretty soon after your exercise in order to restore glycogen levels in your body.

It is especially great if you would go running just before dinner and then eat some pasta or something within 2 hours of your run. This helps building your glycogen stores most efficiently.

If you wait longer with replenishment, then the effect of the carbs diminishes by at least 50 percent!

=============================================
NEW ON THE SITE
In the last month about fifteen new pages have been added to the site. You can easily find out what's new via my running tips blog.

If you are interested in running clothing, please check out the Running Apparel Section which now also features jacket and shirt reviews.

And of course you keep on supplying me with great questions via the Running Training Helpline. Amongst others, my running friend Neil asked a great question about race day pace and Natasha worries about her heart rate.

Check out the Running Training Helpline for many questions and answers about running training.


And keep those great questions coming!
I am more than happy to take the time and provide you with some advice.
