Questions & answers

  • What should I eat or drink after a training session?  
    After a competition or workout, you will recover better if you replenish your proteins, carbohydrates and fluids as soon as possible. A cup of tea or water, a bowl of quark with fruit or a wholemeal egg sandwich, for example, is a good option. If you are going somewhere else after a competition or an intensive workout and it’s difficult to bring snacks along with you, then a protein shake is an excellent option.
  • How does my current workout fit in with training for the marathon?  
    Generally speaking it should not be a problem to combine another sport with your preparations for the marathon. However, ever sport/exercise has an impact on your body. So, if you are combining your preparations for the marathon with another sport, leave out one of your trainings in the schedule.
