I do have a question regarding fueling properly and metabolism regulation. I have trouble knowing how many calories to consume on long run days vs lower mileage days. Is it possible to damage your metabolism by under-fueling/over fueling for your runs? How do we know if we are taking in too many calories as a runner? Thank you! Rebecca Sewald

What are healthy snacks to keep hunger in check between meals?

Metabolism expert Angelo Poli from MetPro gives recommendations on healthy snacks for runners to help keep hunger in check between meals. Talk to a metabolic expert about your goals: www.metpro.co/mta

I always feel motivated when listening to your podcast! Your enthusiasm, humor, education, and podcast topics helped me get back into running after my first AND second baby! “I can do hard things!” I find that I am more than 1 minute per mile slower post babies, which is hard to accept as I like competing with myself! I wonder if it’s due to my change in nutrition, or sleep, or both?! I would love to learn about quick, practical snacks for a full scheduled, working mom of two, trying to get back to quick paced running, please! I appreciate your knowledge, inspiration, and time. Sincerely, Berenise Lemus Balguma

Q&A | Training Tips for Older Runners

Coach Nicole Hart answers a question from an older runner. Learn more about MTA Coaching here.

“I am now 75 years old and still run about 20 miles/week. I have run a few marathons, (and many half marathons) but not in a few years. What do you recommend for an old guy like me for getting back in marathon shape? Should I pay attention to my heartrate or to my pace? What should my optimal running weight be? My goal would be to run as best I can in order to make a judgment as to whether or not I might be able to qualify for Boston. So, what should my goal be?” -Herb
