intraining’s Love 2 Run e-News – June 2017

Did you know running facts – Part 5
Keep hydrated and fuel your performanceDehydration greater than 2% of your body weight may result in a decline in performance, which may have a negative effect on the intensity of your race and training sessions. The average person will sweat approximately 1.4L per hour of running. How much do you sweat?

What should you do to stay hydrated?
– Drink to thirst – when you are thirsty make sure you drink before and during the race
– Drink little and often – avoid consuming large volumes of fluid throughout the race
– Measuring body weight before and after a training session, will give you a guide to how much fluid you lose in sweat (for a given environmental and exercising condition).

Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!

#Breaking2 – We have the NEW Nike Zoom Fly available
Your PB is just a pair of shoes away!
First there was the sub four minute mile barrier, which seemed impossible. Today, there is the seeminly impossible sub two hour marathon mark. The solution… a new shoe developed by Nike with the claim of a 4% improvement in time.

We have recently received the latest #breaking2 inspired Nike Zoom Fly in store. The unique fit and feel of the shoe is unlike anything we have experienced. In our initial testing, it feels as though you float along the ground with less effort. It almost feels like the shoe is pushing you forward or like you are running with a tailwind. Whilst the shoe is lightweight, the cushioning is to the contrary. This shoe feels as comfortable as a training shoe with all the benefits of a racing shoe.

When you have done all the training and you are looking for that little extra edge, the new Nike Zoom Fly may be your ticket to that personal best time. Available in both male and female sizing at the intraining Running Centre.

Keen to give them a go? Ready to experience effortless running? Drop by the store and see if the new Nike Zoom Fly has what it takes to propel you towards your goal at your next event.

Remember, as with all shoe purchases at intraining Running Centre, our trained footwear specialists will analyse your running gait to ensure you put your best foot forward.

Feetures – The new wonder sock is here
Sore heel holding you back? This sock can help
Ever had that frustrating feeling when you wake up in the morning and find out you have a sore heel? Plantar fasciitis (PF) is a condition caused by drastic or sudden increases in mileage, poor foot structure, and inappropriate running shoes, which can overload the plantar fascia, the connective tissue that runs from the heel to the base of the toes, resulting in heel pain. If you have every had PF, chances are you know it can be a real pain to overcome.

Enter the new Plantar Fascia compression sock from Feetures. This is the latest high-quality recovery focused foot garment to hit the shelves at intraining Running Centre. Whilst not the silver bullet in curing plantar fascia pain, they’re a great adjunct treatment for sufferers of Plantar Fasciopathy. Read more here how the new wonder sock can help provide relief and get you back out running quicker.

The Plantar Fascia Compression Socks from Feetures have recently been launched worldwide. We are excited that intraining Running Centre is one of the first few locations you can get your hands on a pair … well, your feet in a pair!

Calf injuries – Doug James (podiatrist, physiotherapist & runner)
Find out the how and why of your calf concerns
There are few things more frustrating than spending months training for a race, only for an injury to prevent you from being able to run it. Calf and lower leg injuries are responsible for a good number of these ‘DNS’ (Did Not Start) type injuries, but many of them are preventable.

Your calf muscles and lower legs are like barometers for how well you are handling your training load. Pain and muscle tightness are often signs of overuse and may signal an oncoming injury. The biggest cause of running injuries are errors in your training approach.

At this point of the season errors may be due to not allowing sufficient recovery time between hard sessions, and failing to heed warnings that you are pushing too hard.

Optimal performance comes from finding…read the full article here.

Pre-event nutrition – Liz Lovering – (dietitian, cheft and runner)
Optimise your pre event nutrition to get the best result
Although there is no one ‘best’ food to have pre-event, type and timing is important.  Everyone is different in what they prefer to have before they race. But, in general, your pre-event meal or snack should be rich in carbohydrate, low in fibre, (important if you have issues with gut upset), easy to digest (higher fat foods digest at a slower rate) and most importantly familiar.

Runner nutrition - Nail your next racePre-event nutrition must be practiced in training. This is so you can find out what works best for you. You need to allow adequate time for digestion. It can take anything from 2-4 hours to digest a full meal so if your event starts early in the morning, rather than impact on sleep, have a carb rich snack before bed and in the morning a read the full article here in this months issue of ‘From the Sole‘.

If you are keen to nail your next big event, your nutrition strategy can play a big part in your result. Maximise your performance and make an appointment to see intraining dietitian and nutritionist, Liz Lovering.

Megabake – Quality sports bars

intraining Running Centre are proud stockists and supporters of local Brisbane company Megabake and is produced by bakers. The high quality, natural ingredient bars are a perfect source of energy ideal for before, after and during training to maintain your energy levels. Megabake bars are ideal for those with sensitive stomachs who are looking for a real food alternative in a pint-sized package.

Megabake was born out of a need for a premium, portable source of nutrition for endurance activities. The bakers, before they were the bakers, were disillusioned with the quality of the sports nutrition products available in the Australian market; overly processed, overly priced, inadequate nutrition, too many additives and not pleasant to eat.

Megabake is a Brisbane-based small batch baker of an energy bar of the highest order. We proudly stand behind what we passionately believe is the best energy bar available, and it is produced locally which means it is practically from the bakers door to your tummy.

What is the Megabake difference?

  • Natural fresh ingredients
  • Developed in conjunction with Accredited Sports Dietitian
  • Low FODMAP
  • Dairy free
  • Low gluten
  • Vegan friendly
  • Locally made in Brisbane

Key nutritional facts (serving size 60g)

  • Carbohydrates: 27g
  • Protein: 9g
  • Kilojoules/Calories: 1110kj/265cal

Megabake is a fantastic tasting portable energy bar that is perfect for pre-activity with coffee, during-activity with suffering or post-activity recovery. The common formula for all Megabake energy bars is: massive energy content; balanced nutrition from a wide range of energy sources; exceptional flavour, texture and mouthfeel, and easy digestibility during exercise.

Drop by intraining Running Centre today and ask our staff about Megabake and give one a trial before, during or after your next training session and feel the difference
