Dr Kinita K Patel on Nutrition

The second session of the day dealt with the all important topic of ‘Nutrition’. Dr. Kinita Kadakia Patel touched upon various aspects of pre-race day, during the race and also post race recovery.

She started with explaining why the lunch that was served at the Summit was so chosen and the rationale for the choice of each item. She then laid out the dinner plan, the breakfast to be had before the run. She then went into different aspects of nutrition and hydration during the run itself and dealt with both half marathon and full marathon scenarios. After the run, she talked about how to recover from glycogen depletion and ultimately, how to effectively carry out post run recovery. The Q & A were very engrossing, since nutrition and food intake is matter that is close to most runners hearts.
