Master Your Fueling and Hydration for Runner’s E-Course Review

I had the opportunity to review Laura’s Master Your Fueling and Hydration for Runners e-Course. Read on to learn more about the course and receive an awesome discount if you choose to sign up!

You already know that I love Laura’s blog and that training with her for the Long Island Half Marathon in the spring helped me to achieve my current half marathon PR.

I was instantly hooked on reading This Runner’s Recipes last year. Reading just one post made me realize that this girl not only knew what she was saying but was able to explain the technical running stuff in easy to understand terms.

I find Laura to be a breath of fresh air in the midst of the healthy living blog world which if you aren’t careful, can lead you to reading incorrect workout and nutritional information combined with the possibility of following disordered eating accounts disguised as healthy.

mastering your fueling & hydration e-course review

They say that people are best able to grasp new concepts when the information is presented in such a way that a connection can be made between the presented information and a real life situation.

That’s the best way to describe how Laura goes about presenting running and sports nutrition topics – she gets the running terminology out there in such a way that you can apply it to your life, making that connection between the information provided and your own personal running routine.

A complete lesson in fueling and hydration is beneficial to us runners.

As much as we fitness people think we know, we don’t know it all.

And, even more important to realize, just because we know about something doesn’t mean we have fully understood it, applied it or needed to apply it to our routine when we first learned it.

E-Course Details:

The Fueling & Hydration e-course is divided into six in-depth modules that you will receive by email once a week.

Week One: Hydration
Week Two: Everything You Need to Know about Electrolytes
Week Three: Carbs, Protein, Healthy Fats, and What Runners Need to Eat
Week Four: Eating for Recovery & Injury Prevention
Week Five: Eating Mid-Run
Week Six: Race Day Fueling and Hydration Strategy

This fueling and hydration e-course covers everything you ever wanted and needed to know in regards to figuring out your fueling and hydration needs as a runner with special attention focused around the training for long runs, half marathons, and marathons.

There are detailed product recommendations regarding fuels, electrolyte supplement options and hydration packs plus recipes too!

While the e-course is designed to educate you on fueling and hydration needs, it is also geared towards interactively helping you structure a plan that is tailored to your specific needs as an individual runner.

With the use of the worksheets provided which are specific to the topic in each emailed module, you are able to organize and assess your own personal needs, figuring out what works for you and what doesn’t, leading you to your own training plan.

No two runners are alike which is one of the reasons why this e-course is valuable to your running routine and runner education.

My Personal Thoughts:

I learned a lot. I had several A-HA moments where information just clicked for me. It’s not that I didn’t already know about electrolytes, hydration and fueling, it’s that the information was presented in such a way that I had major realizations.

Oh wait, that’s why I feel that way during my runs and/or after my runs! That’s exactly why I should never have relied on those Trader Joe’s Jelly Beans as the main fuel for a half marathon and yeah, I need to give this hydration plan a try.

I also realized that I must take the amount of sodium that I need in my diet seriously. My blood pressure is naturally low which makes my hydration and electrolyte balance crucial to my health to keep my blood volume up in order to prevent dizziness and fainting.

Of course I already knew this yet I didn’t take it seriously enough until reading through this e-course and making the connections. I learned from Laura that the symptoms I was walking around with every single day were symptoms of an electrolyte imbalance! All I can say is DUH to myself now. It’s practically embarrassing.

The information provided in this e-course is so carefully thought-out and easy to understand but probably the best part is that it is interactive too.

Laura wants to hear from you.

She isn’t just presenting you with information to read. She wants you to track your meals, hydration and correlating workouts and see what happens. She wants to know what you discovered and she actually wants you to ask her questions.

I swear she gets excited each time I come to her with a quirky running question, it brings her favorite hobby and career to life which sounds funny but isn’t funny – It’s the truth. Again, it’s a breath of fresh air to know that there’s someone out there who loves running and loves to help others with their running too.

    Awww, you’re making me blush – thank you so much for the great review! I really do love working with runners.
    Soon I’ll trying out new pre-long run meals for 16+ miles – probably oatmeal with fruit and pb or sunflower butter. I need to train my stomach to handle more before my second marathon!

      my stomach is pretty tough I think – I can handle oatmeal and fruit and even pb with it before a run. I don’t eat a large amount of it but I can eat it fairly close to running and be ok. I find warming it up a lot and making things soupy helps with digestion.

  • Suzy August 9, 2016, 11:07 am

    Yep, Laura is the best! I eat 3 hours before a half or a full marathon and it’s usually oatmeal with some sugar and milk or a bagel with a bit of butter and jam. And always coffee.

    Thanks for doing a review! I honestly could use some fueling/hydration help. I’ve realized over some time now that I actually am really lucky in that I can eat a lot of different things within 30 minutes of a long run, and basically a full meal before shorter ones. I still want to figure out how much water/gatorade/nuun I should be having though. I’ll be looking into this!
