HOW WAS NATURALLY FUELLED RUNNER RONNIE HAYDON’S VIRGIN MONEY LONDON MARATHON?

NATURAL NUTRITION

My name is Ronnie and I have a marathon addiction. It started in 2009, when I got lucky in the ballot for the Flora London Marathon. I saw this as a sign to re-appraise my training and eating, so I joined a running club.

In the first stages of my addiction, I didn’t use energy gels, which I associated with elite athletes and ultrarunners. Gels entered my armoury after marathon number five, when I recognised a pattern of cramping, nausea and near blackouts at around mile 23. My marathon times were hovering just the wrong side of the fourhour mark. I needed something to push me through that final effort, something quickly and easily absorbed, and I was told gels could do that trick.

The main ingredient in a sports gel is maltodextrin, and fructose/ sucrose is also often present. The sweet gloop, easily swallowed, packs around 24g of carbohydrate in the form of concentrated starch and sugar.

About Women’s Running

Get inspired to take your running off the beaten track, with the July issue of Women’s Running, on sale 31 May. From our beginner’s guide to ultrarunning (including a 16-week training plan), to the lowdown on all things vertical racing, this issue celebrates adventure in running – and shows you how you can get a piece of it. Don’t fear, though, that doesn’t have to mean transforming into an ultra-athlete, running ludicrous miles in remote locations. We’ll show you how simply taking your runs off road and embracing the great outdoors can shake up your routine – and add some soul to your running. And if you need some convincing, don’t miss our interview with cover star and off-road enthusiast Caroline McKay, who tells us why the life-affirming nature of trail running has got her totally hooked. This issue also features our spring Ultimate Race Guide, compiling the best 100 races taking place from July onwards this year, so you can start planning your next adventure …
