From personal experience, there is always a challenge in the way of trying to stay fit – anything from working in a hot greasy establishment, babysitting a whiny sibling, or just hours of homework (ranging from calculus to creating an original musical piece for an English project). However, if you just organize your day to where you can try this Track Star Fit challenge at least three to four days out of the week, then it can be a stepping stone to getting fit!
Track Star’s Diet
Food is essential in keeping a body up to tune with all the energy that is being burned while running. Some important ones to keep close by would be:
- Whole Grain Pasta, Wheat Bread, Crackers, and Cereal
Theses grains are filled with carbohydrates to burn and fiber to help everything in your digestive system run smoothly.
Eggs, Salmon, and Beans
Eggs are filled with protein and amino acids that help repair and recover the muscles that are used while running. Salmon is also a great source of protein and has Omega-3’s which help prevent heart disease and high blood pressure. ALL beans have fiber, protein, and are a perfect source for iron.
Low-fat Yogurt, Bananas, and Peanut Butter (power snacks)!
