Hello all fellow Kilcoole members…..

To accompany the new marathon and endurance training plans we thought it might be good to start a club blog on hydration and nutrition for runners. This blog will cover all aspects of nutrition and hydration over time and will include practical tips, recipes and supplement information. We hope it will grow organically and that members will get involved in any discussions. I am a relative novice to running and although I can supply the scientific knowledge and recommendations from leading sports bodies I don’t hold the endurance running experience as many in the club….therefore it would be great if the more experienced runners out there give feedback and suggestions including product preferences and ideas. What worked/didn’t work for you?

The first article will cover hydration and dehydration in running and the following piece will have a more in-depth look at sports drinks. If you have experience with a great drink or you have a magic potion/recipe then please share with us! It would be really interesting if we could make a product hit list which covers taste, price and results…

Alternatively if you have any questions about sports nutrition or hydration then please post on the blog and I’ll do my best to post an answer!

Happy blogging
