Importance of carbs when running

5 minReading time

When it comes to fueling the body, carbs are important macronutrients. Carbohydrates give us a quick source of energy, allowing us to perform at our highest intensity. However, our stores of carbs are limited. In order to maintain high levels of intensity when training for longer time periods, we need to continually replenish these stores to avoid running low. Planning your carb intake both before and after exercise is also vital for your performance and recovery.
