Ukrop’s Monument 10K Training Tips
Keep your body fueled while you train for the 10K with lean sources of protein and complex carbohydrates. Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods Grilled Chicken Breast with Oven Roasted Vegetables is a tasty way to get 25 grams of protein for just 180 calories. Add a delicious Whole Wheat White House Roll to complete your meal and boost your intake of wholesome carbohydrates and fiber. Look for these great foods at your local Martin’s.
Be carb smart! Carbohydrates provide the needed fuel for your muscles during training. For optimal performance, include carbohydrate-rich foods with each meal and snack. Our Whole Wheat White House Rolls are made with a unique blend of whole wheat flour, oat bran and cracked wheat and provide 16 grams of carbohydrates and three grams of fiber per serving.
Training runs getting longer? Feeling tired? Be sure to refuel your body with a healthy lunch. Ukrop’s Homestyle Foods Oven Roasted Turkey Sub contains complex carbohydrates to replace muscle glycogen stores that are lost in longer distance running. To keep the calories and fat in check, simply remove the cheese and add a side of raw veggies.
