LIFESTYLE: FOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5K

first_imgFOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5KWith so many people starting a couch-to-5k training plan it’s worth ensuring you have good nutritional backup to fuel your energy as well as your enthusiasm.This doesn’t have to be complicated. Swapping a few of your usual foods for more healthy options will make a difference in the long run. Sorry! How many times have you read the importance of planning a weekly menu? Yeah, I found this advice pointless as well.Dinner for us depends a lot on the weather, the time you arrive home and how quickly you’ve to drop someone off to music practice or football.More important are the store cupboard essentials- pasta sauces, brown rice, wholewheat pasta, eggs, cheese and, yes, lentils.Quick meal ideas can include a Dahl, wholewheat pitta with brown rice, omelette with peppers and ham or pasta with a tomato-based sauce. More substantial snacks can include french toast, crepes stuffed with cheese and mushroom, toasties with salad. More calorific but delicious is a single warm croissant with melted cheese and tomato. Always be aware of your portion size.Don’t knock frozen veg- frozen spinach and peas are also good staples to have on hand.So try substituting brown for white bread and semi-skimmed milk for full fat milk.When it comes to exercise, avoid having a large meal within two hours of your run.A light snack, such as a banana, a bagel with peanut butter or some toast prior to running is fine. Make sure you are drinking enough water throughout the day to avoid dehydration.Water is usually enough for low-intensity exercise up to 50 minutes. For higher-intensity exercise lasting more than 50 minutes, or lower-intensity exercise lasting more than an hour, a sports drink will help maintain energy levels and the salt helps to keep you hydrated.Food and drink also plays a part in recovering effectively from training. When you finish training, aim to have a carbohydrate-rich food or drink within 30 minutes.Snacks are important when you’re training. After a work out it is very tempting to reach for the crisps and chocolate bar and flop on the sofa with a mug of tea. Make a point of leaving good snacks on the kitchen table – cereal bars, small bag of popcorn, oranges (easy peel or there’s no chance) or even a square of dark chocolate. If you’re going to eat seeds or nuts, a small handful is enough.Make sure your nutrition complements your training or you’re gonna need a bigger couch.LIFESTYLE: FOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5K was last modified: July 2nd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:LIFESTYLE: FOOD TO FUEL YOUR ENERGY FOR COUCH-TO-5Klast_img read more

Wilma relief is happening, Bush tells victims

first_imgPOMPANO BEACH, Fla. – President George W. Bush on Thursday predicted a robust response to Hurricane Wilma victims angry that supplies have been slow in coming as he greeted relief volunteers while a political storm gripped the White House back home. “Things don’t happen instantly, but things are happening,” Bush said. He spoke at a relief supply distribution center, as people gathered around him as they waited for a hot meal of barbecue pork, potatoes, bread and crushed pineapple. Alongside his brother, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the president greeted volunteers with the Southern Baptist Convention who traveled from Tennessee to hand out food and water. Storm victims mobbed the brothers to get handshakes, hugs and, for the women, kisses on the cheek. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week About 2 million homes and businesses remain without power in Florida in the wake of Wilma, which struck the state Monday. Floridians have grown angry about the response as they struggle to find food, water and fuel. Criticism has been directed toward the Federal Emergency Management Agency, which is trying to recover from its failures in response to Hurricane Katrina. Gov. Bush said Wednesday that the responsibility is the state’s and promised a huge infusion of supplies. The president said he came to Florida to make sure the federal and state responses “dovetail.” “People are getting fed. Soon more and more houses will have their electricity back on and life will get back to normal,” Bush said. He said gasoline lines would be alleviated by the arrival of fuel-carrying ships. He said generators being brought in from other states and the presence of 6,000 electrical workers from across the country would help restore power – a key step to also addressing the gas shortages, since many stations have gasoline, but no electricity to deliver it to customers. The president, meanwhile, ignored reporters’ shouted questions about Harriet Miers’ surprise withdrawal as his nominee to the Supreme Court. The announcement about Miers roiled Washington on Thursday and the White House is bracing for possible indictments of one or more top aides in the CIA leak case. Indictments could be announced today. After landing at Miami International Airport at lunchtime, Bush took a short helicopter flight to a Goodyear blimp hangar here. His motorcade route to the relief center took him down streets lined with downed branches. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Quins support award-winning programme helping young people

first_imgAfter seeing their work first hand, Harlequins and England Under-20 prop Kyle Sinckler knows just what an impact the award-winning HITZ programme could have.The Wandsworth-born front row was one of the guests of honour at a special launch event in Lambeth earlier this month, which saw the scheme rolled out nationally to all 12 Aviva Premiership Rugby clubs.And having met some of the young people HITZ has already helped, Sinckler insists it has the power to inspire thousands more teenagers as well.“I think the HITZ programme is very close to my heart.,” said the 20-year-old Harlequins academy product.“Rugby helped me and changed my life and I think it could do the same for younger kids as well.“It teaches them teamwork, discipline, having that sense of family, a routine and hopefully it’s going to be life-changing for some of these kids in the HITZ programme.“I started at Battersea Ironside RFC when I was eight or nine, I was quite an angry kid and rugby gave me an outlet and more.“At the time I didn’t have a clue about rugby, I just wanted to hit people all the time and the rest is history.“When you’re young and angry and quite naïve, I thought rugby was a good outlet to be physical out on the field.“But as you get older you mature and you top making the same mistakes and I think the HITZ programme will teach these kids that if they do make a mistake it’s not the end of the world, keep your head up and keep rolling along.”Delivered by Premiership Rugby and funded by partners Wooden Spoon, Land Rover, Barclays and Comic Relief, HITZ uses rugby as a tool to help improve literacy, numeracy and employability, as well as encouraging young people to be more confident, self-reliant and to live a healthier lifestyle.Originally a pilot project in four London boroughs, the roll-out mean thousands more 11 to 19-year-olds will benefit from going through the programme, and having access to the specialist HITZ officers at each club – as well as 600 Aviva Premiership rugby players and mentors and role models.And Harlequins HITZ officer Paul Wilson thinks the scheme is vital in tackling the problem of NEETs (Not in Education, Employment or Training).He said: “HITZ is a new venture for us at Harlequins and we’ve got to make sure we work with the community, our target is to get 40 kids per year through the programme.“We will be targeting the NEETs and with the core values of our sport, discipline and respect, its about using the literacy skills and the sport skills we’ll give these young adults the confidence to go out into the workplace and display these skills.”The award winning HITZ programme tackles some of the greatest challenges facing young people today – unemployment, crime and disillusionment. Delivered nationally by Premiership Rugby and funded by national partners Barclays, Comic Relief, Land Rover and Wooden Spoon, HITZ uses rugby to increase young people’s resilience, self-reliance and confidence. It gives them the skills to get back into education, vocational training, apprenticeships and employment.Please visit hitzrugby.com to find out more.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
