Refueling during long runs

Refueling during a long run is extremely important, if you are running more then about 75 minutes you begin to deplete your glycogen stores and your muscles run out of fuel and your body begins to drag. Consuming carbohydrates mid run can keep your blood sugar steady so you don’t crash and burn! Below I have listed some of the most popular types of fuel for long runs:

Keep in mind that every person is different, and you might need to experiment with different options and at what point you consume your fuel. For me I refuel very slowly. At about mile 7 I begin refueling and continue through mile 8 and 9. If I consume my fuel too quickly my stomach gets upset. It took me about 3 long runs to perfect my process of refueling so don’t give up! Come in to Live Fit if you have any additional questions!!
