How You Can Get Faster (2 of 3)
2. REFORMULATE YOUR FUEL. If you need to lose a few pounds, which is virtually guaranteed to make you faster, concentrate on high quality foods. Eat whole-grain carbs before workouts, and indulge yourself with low-fat chocolate milk soon after your training. Eliminate other sugary drinks--a common problem area for always-thirsty runners.

    I remember the Carb trick from middle and high school. My dad always had my mom fix my sister a carb rich meal before a big track or cross-country meet. It was usually spaghetti or something of that nature. He said it would give us what we needed to run well.
I do need to do something about my fluid intake though. hmmm...My hands always swell so bad when I'm running and I can't figure out why. I don't even drink those sweet beverages your talking about. I typically just drink water. Any tips you may have about what may be causing it would be appreciated.

Oh, just a little side note....My sister still holds the record at our old high school for the 2 mile...LOL. She had the 1 mile record too, but I believe it was broken back in 2006 or so. She graduated high school in 1995. She has held those records for a good while!
