Hey guys, it’s Jared here. I’m a coach at Waterloo Swim Club and I want to talk to you guys about for a little bit about nutrition and not putting unhealthy things into your body before you race. It’s very important to make sure that you guys stay healthy and know and monitoring what kinds of foods you guys are putting into your body at all times. We don’t want to make you, don’t want to be putting anything that will interrupt your race process or how you’re going to train and how you guys react to different types of foods. So it’s important to make sure that you know what you’re putting into your body before you race. The choices that you may want to think about when you’re going into deciding what could be good for your body what could be bad. Think of greens anything that’s green broccoli, asparagus, brussels sprouts. I know a lot of people don’t like those, but those are really good for you. Almonds, bananas, blueberries. All those are very healthy foods to put into your body before you race and it’s a great thing to think about before or prior to a race. Bad foods, chips, sodas, anything that has a ton of sugar or high fructose corn syrup. Those are just good ways to know that you probably shouldn’t be putting into your body before you go into an event. Thinking like oh or if you have to think like okay this may be good or this may not be good, it’s probably not good if you’re having to think about it.
This is Jared at Waterloo Swimming, where swimming happens. Make sure you guys have a healthy, healthy day.
