hannah and franThis practical and interactive workshop is aimed at runners, cyclists and triathletes who want to go faster for longer. It is run jointly by registered nutritionist and England Athletics running fitness coach Fran Taylor and registered dietitian Hannah Pearman, a keen cyclist who has completed several endurance events and who specialises in supporting people taking life-changing actions.

At this class, you will learn how to prepare a satisfying and balanced, nutrient-dense pre-event meal that will have your body in peak condition for whatever lies ahead. You will also make some on-the-go energy balls and a refreshing rehydration drink for the journey. In addition, Fran and Hannah will help you:

  • Learn how to carb load to avoid hitting the wall.
  • Learn how to hydrate properly.
  • Understand the evidence behind fasted training and fat for fuel.
  • Identify the foods and supplements that can improve your performance (and those that can’t).
  • Find strategies for alleviating an upset stomach.

Fran worked with Dan Lawson in the run-up to his leading Team GB to silver in the European 24-Hour Championships. Let her and Hannah take you that one-step nearer your goal.

What previous participants said: “So much really useful and practical information. I felt confident that Fran & Hannah really knew their stuff.” “A really great course, I will recommend it.” “Think I’ve underestimated the importance of fuelling, have taken lots on board.”
