Should I change my diet while running?

Your running will certainly benefit if you consume a balanced, nutritious diet with enough calories to support your training and not too much ‘junk’ that provides empty calories without nutrients.

As a runner it’s important to remember that your diet doesn’t just affect your performance, it can also affect your recovery from training, your immune system and even your risk of injury.

How can I reduce the risk of injury when running?

I am 83-year-old female. I have not run for over 40 years and doubted I could. Today, at the right place/right time I was watching my great grandkids play football and had the urge to run and I did. I felt a euphoria and could just not come down. Should I keep trying?
