Default Is it important to have a diet while in marathon training?

Being healthy is important for me that is why I always make sure that I make a run within a week. I also eat healthy food and hydrated myself properly. I will be joining a big marathon event on Jan 2016. Is there a special diet to prepare for my training program for half marathon?

Have you ever spoken to a trainer (at the gym) about diet? They will give you safe recommendations and also take into account the frequency and duration of your training.

Good luck!

Default training program for half marathon

I was wondering if anyone had experience of training program for half marathon?. I’ve ran marathons before but never trained for one yet. How was it?

I thought everyone who ran a marathon had to train for it. However, it occurred to me that you don't need to train if you don't care about your time or winning. Sometimes, I guess it's good enough to just finish!

(I don't advise it, though...)

The points on losing weight and eating better are important ones that are often overlooked.But losing some weight by cutting out the junk (not dieting, but eating healthy food ) can make a massive difference.
