Marathon Runner Sampler Gift Basket
Keep your favorite runner strong and energized for optimum performance with our Marathon Runner Sampler Gift Basket. A diet rich in grains, beans
, potatoes and other high carbohydrate foods will keep fuel levels at the ready for the next workout. Whole grains also contain important B vitamins that muscles need to convert carbohydrates into energy.
Hard workouts can cause sore muscles. Rich vitamin C sources such as broccoli
may reduce exercise-induced muscle damage, and also may help muscles recover faster after exercising. The healthful fats in nuts and flaxseed fight inflammation and muscle soreness--they're also good for your heart and may even boost immunity! We've included mixed nuts to snack on and an apple crisp flavored flax & soy bar. Flax also contains alpha-linolenic acid which may possibly boost endurance! Ginger
may act as a natural anti-inflammatory and reduce joint and muscle pain.
Your favorite marathoner will love to know that combining honey with a protein supplement may boost post-workout recuperation and favor better blood sugar maintenance after exercise. Honey can also be an effective pre-workout energy source that does not induce hypoglycemia and can improve endurance exercise capacity. They'll love the fruit flavored honey sticks drizzled on oatmeal, in tea, on fruit, or as a sweet treat on its own.
Perfect pre- or post-race gift! Great for support during training or to celebrate race effort!
