I am full of learnin' this year, I tell ya! I was checking out Facebook, and saw that Frontrunners is teaming up with a cooking school called Cook Culture and offering a four part series on nutrition for runners! Here is a short description of each of the two hour classes (3 recipes demonstrated at each class):
Class 1 - Diet planning, essential foods for 14 weeks of training (for Omnivores, Flexitarians, Vegetarians and Vegans)
Class 2 - Pre/Post run meals and cooking basics
Class 3 - Liquid food, give your body the maximum benefit
Class 4 - Beyond carb loading, taper for peak performance
Sounds totally awesome! A lot of runners are foodies (my personal motto is I run so I can eat!) so I think this series is perfect. The instructor, Cosmo Meens, travelled to the 2008 Beijing Olympics to help support Simon Whitfield and the rest of the triathlete team as their chef...so he's gotta know what he's talking about.
So cool. I registered as soon as I saw it. Here is the link for anyone in Victoria who might be interested. So excited!
