- Listener question from our episode with Sports Dietician Meghann Featherstun, Why Does Nutrition Matter for Running:
I would love to hear someone elaborate on weighing the benefits of post-run fueling with the benefits of taking advantage of that suppressed hunger phase post-run, specifically for someone who has legitimate healthy weight loss goals! … that lovely post-run hunger suppression period is really the LAST time of day I want to be adding in calories when it comes to my weight loss progress, even though I recognize the importance of it from a recovery standpoint.

MAIN TOPIC: HOW CAN RUNNERS SUSTAIN LONG-TERM PROGRESS?
How can we sustain long-term progress? There are so many things we could talk about regarding this topic. If you listen to this podcast, we have a pretty good guess that you too are on a journey of continuous improvement.
What approaches can we take to training throughout the years, and what can we learn as we move through stages of our fitness and seasons?
We brought on top-level distance runner Nathan Martin to help us discuss the topic.
Major take-aways from our conversation with Nathan include two of his mantras, “Venture on,” and “Find a way.” It is important for each athlete to search yourself, find your faults, and become a student of the sport and student of progress.
