Whether you’re a seasoned runner who’s looking for the best way to approach an upcoming track meet, or you’re a beginner who just wants to make the team, you may be wondering how to prepare. If track meets or tryouts are coming up and you don’t know what to do, don’t panic. There are many ways that you can strengthen your body and mind so that you’re ready to be the best track athlete you can be.
If you’ve already gotten a sports physical and athletic clothes, shoes, and equipment, the best way to prepare for track is to condition with ladder workouts 2-3 times per week and strength training workouts 1-2 times per week. Run shorter distances to improve your speed and longer distances to improve your endurance. Eat nutritious, balanced meals that contain protein, leafy greens, and carbohydrates and drink at least 6-8 glasses of water every the day.
Hot Tip: Less Is Not More Some distance athletes are overly concerned about a low body-fat count and think lighter is always better in the endurance events. This can be a very dangerous obsession—too few calories results in muscle fatigue, nutritional deficiencies, injury, illness, and hormonal imbalances.
Middle-distance runners do both endurance and resistance types of training and need to find the balance between their protein and carbohydrate intake. They also need to frequently restore their glycogen levels. It can be hard to eat before or after workouts because of the intensity of the training, but it is also one of the easiest things a middle distance athlete can do to optimize recovery.
Middle distance runners should also pay extra attention to their iron levels—especially if you are a woman. It is important to eat red meat, liver, seafood, iron-fortified breakfast cereals and green leafy vegetables are at least two to three times per week to keep or restore high iron levels.Read more at: http://track.isport.com/track-guides/how-to-maintain-a-healthy-diet-for-track-field
Many power and sprint athletes believe that increasing their protein intake is the key factor in enhancing muscle mass and strength. This is not necessarily true. The best way to maintain and achieve this goal is by eating a mixed diet of proteins, carbs, and fruits and vegetables.
Think of carbohydrate-rich foods as the fuel that gives your body the energy it needs to workout. Protein-nutrient foods give your body something to build on. If your diet lacks either of these, you will not achieve the power and speed needed to improve on the track, the runway or in the ring. It is also important to stay away from foods and drinks that contain excess fat, sugar or alcohol.
