<h2><robust>Hi Michel!</robust><robust> We hear you don’t eat purple meat within the run up to the marathon, why is that? </robust></h2>
<p>Over the years of working marathons, I’ve discovered purple meat shouldn’t be conducive to a coaching regime and I discover myself consuming extra <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/assortment/healthy-fish">fish</a>, <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/search/collections?question=vegetable">greens</a> and <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/assortment/healthy-pasta">carbohydrates</a>.</p>
<h2><robust>Are there every other meals you keep away from if you’re coaching?</robust></h2>
<p>Foods which might be very excessive in fats, though saying that when you’re working you want fairly a little bit of fats in your food plan. The approach I take a look at it, consuming animal fat or unadulterated fat resembling butter, cream and cheese are literally good for you. I do keep away from meals which might be excessive in <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/information/truth-about-sugar">sugar</a>.</p>

<h2><robust>You stated in The Marathon Chef cookbook that it was trial and error creating recipes in your coaching, what did it contain?</robust></h2>
<p>When you’re coaching for a <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/howto/information/marathon-meal-plans">marathon</a>, the food plan may be a bit boring so it’s discovering spices and flavours to make it fascinating. I ran the Midnight Sun marathon a few years again. My physique clock was all tousled and I didn’t know what to eat for lunch so I made a decision to eat what the locals have been having. I discovered a restaurant in Tromso that was serving whale meat and I assumed I’m not going to have one other event to eat it so I did. I ran 26 miles with the style of whale blubber in my mouth. I believe I wakened the subsequent morning and it was nonetheless there!</p>
<h2><robust>What substances do you might have in your runner’s storecupboard?</robust></h2>
<p><a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/search/glossary?question=spices">Spices</a> – pepper, chilli, cumin, caraway seeds – you may put them in a pepper mill and grind them. Dried meals like seaweed, kelp, mushroom and tomato – they actually improve the flavour of dishes.</p>
<h2><robust>What do you eat earlier than or after working?</robust></h2>
<p>I make a selfmade <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/7001/cinnamon-berry-granola-bars">granola bar</a> or <a href="https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/healthier-flapjacks">flapjack</a> – they’re very handy. There are power bars accessible nevertheless it’s nice to make your personal. If you may’t make your personal, take a little sachet of excellent high quality dried fruit and nuts  – they’re very nutritious.</p>

<h2><robust>What do you suppose is the one factor all new runners ought to keep away from doing?</robust></h2>
<p>Setting off too quick. As a novice runner, I bear in mind my first marathon. You learn all of the magazines. Everybody tells you, ‘Don’t go too quick’ however I made that mistake. You get caught up within the fantastic euphoria of the occasion and all people cheering you on and then you definately get to the primary mile marker and suppose, ‘How did I get right here? I’m going actually quick and I really feel nice!’ Slow down! It’s much better to be sprinting on the finish.</p>
<h2><robust>What is one of the best ways to refuel mid-race. Do you might have gels?</robust></h2>
<p>I’m not eager on the thick gels however sports activities drinks are excellent. Start ingesting these if you’re coaching so your physique is used to absorbing them or you could have a unhealthy response on the day.</p>
<h2><robust>What is the one food plan or way of life change you’ll recommend for somebody getting ready for his or her first marathon?</robust></h2>
<p>Cut again on the booze. Having stated that, I all the time have a glass of wine with my meal. I don’t actually change that behavior even the evening earlier than a marathon – I discover it relaxes me and aids digestion and that’s the way in which it’s. That’s one glass although, not a bottle!</p>

<h2><robust>How has working modified your life?</robust></h2>
<p>I finished smoking. I gave up 24 years in the past. I definitely run a lot higher. Cutting again on alcohol and moderation usually is nice, studying meals labels and being cautious if you eat in a restaurant too is necessary, selecting one thing grilled as opposed to in a cream sauce.</p>
<p>I additionally suppose working (or any sport) makes you handle your diary higher and prioritise what you do. You discover time to run and do different issues.</p>
<h2><robust>Is there one factor individuals can do on race day to make them go sooner?</robust></h2>
<p>Often my quickest occasions and my finest occasions come once I’m least anticipating it, so I believe it’s down to being completely relaxed and perhaps making an attempt to put that pace factor in the back of your thoughts. I’ve all the time checked out my break up occasions and one factor that does assistance is making an attempt to do the primary half of the marathon slower than the second half. If you may maintain one thing within the bag for the tip, I reckon that’s if you get the PBs.</p>
<h2><robust>Can you identify three stuff you’ve realized when you’ve been working marathons? </robust></h2>
<p><robust>1.</robust> If you don’t prepare correctly it may be very painful…</p>
<p><robust>2. </robust>…and it may be very painful when you strive to prepare with an harm – I discovered that one out first-hand!</p>
<p><robust>3.</robust> They’re very private since you’re by yourself. You could also be working in a massive marathon with 30,000 individuals however on the market, it’s simply you. You and the clock!</p>
<h2><robust>What do you end up serious about if you’re working?</robust></h2>
<p>Oh, a hundred and one issues. It’s a nice second of escapism. I’m very, very busy working practically each hour of the day so once I’m by myself working, it’s a nice launch.</p>
