5 Times a Runners Can and Should Keep a Food Log Occasionally

Confession: I don’t like food logging, though I know a ton of athletes (especially runners) out there who keep a food log. I just find it freaking annoying, and rarely can I stick to it for more than a day before getting frustrated and dropping out entirely. BUT… I know that every so often, it can be extremely useful to do, for the sake of checking in and collecting information that may be useful later. For example, it can be a great way to tell if you’re getting enough protein (I rarely am). It can also be a fantastic way to see patterns in gut issues, because you may not notice patterns on your own. (For me, it’s always shown something in that vein!) So, over on MapMyRun, you can read the whole list of how tracking your food for a few days can be a huge advantage: How Runners Can Use Food Logging to Their Advantage
