Going The Distance

To build your endurance, you have to be sure that your body has stored enough glycogen, which comes from carbohydrates.

For most of us, even moderately active adults, the standard recommendation 1.8 to 2.7 grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight per day gives us plenty of glycogen. However,people who participate in high intensity activities such as marathons or triathlons may benefit from carbohydrate loading. do you remember learning about carbohydrate loading in a previous lesson?
