Diet for Training and Competition


A note from Coach Doug

What we want is for our athletes to consume high quality calories and a balance of proteins and minerals so that they perform at a high level. We want to cut out the junk food, pop, and high sugar diets that are creating a generation of obese kids heading for a lifetime of dialysis.

Considerations


A few notes on the season as we get into the fall...
  • It is getting colder and darker. We will train in any weather condition as long as it is safe. We won't run in lightening, large hail, or if the ground is covered in ice. We will pretty much go in anything else. Please ensure your athletes are dressed for the weather. Otherwise I end up giving up my stuff so they are more comfortable! Hats, gloves, perhaps even scarfs should be in the car in the event they are needed. This is not Coach Doug being a sadist...we must have the athletes prepared to compete in the AAU and USATF State Championship races mid November. In the past the ground has been snow covered. There was also a year where is was really warm. We don't want them preoccupied with the weather, but rather focused on competing.
  • As it gets darker at night we will adjust practice time. I will hold on to 6:00 p.m. as a start time as long as reasonably possible. There is a time change coming up which will force us to go to 5:00 p.m. at some point.
  • It takes 2 - 3 hours for food to digest. So, if your athlete is hungry after school and prior to practice, a light snack is all they should get after 3:45 p.m. or so. Dinner should be after practice. Otherwise we end up with belly aches at practice.
