Abstract The goal of training is to prepare the distance athlete to perform at his or her best during major competitions. Whatever the event, nutrition plays a major role in the achievement of various factors that will see a runner or walker take the starting line in the best possible form. Everyday eating patterns must supply fuel and nutrients needed to optimize their performance during training sessions and to recover quickly afterwards. Carbohydrate and fluid intake before, during, and… 

Nutrition for throwers, jumpers, and combined events athletes

TLDR
Translating nutrient and dietary recommendations made using research findings from sports and exercise protocols similar to their training and competitive events into guidelines these athletes can apply during training and competition is important for enhancing performance.

Nutrition for Marathon Running

TLDR
Marathon runners can uniquely benefit from nutritional strategies that support their training responses and/or maximize their performance during the actual race, and are highly encouraged to familiarize themselves with these strategies prior to utilizing them in a competitive setting.

Nutrition for travel

TLDR
The irony of travel is that it often places athletes at a greater risk of failing to meet their specific nutrition goals or succumbing to illness, at a time when the demands or outcomes of performance are of greatest importance.

Nutrition for the sprinter

TLDR
The type and timing of protein intake and nutrients ingested concurrently must be considered when designing optimal nutritional strategies for increasing muscle mass and power.

Nutrition for Adventure Racing

TLDR
There is considerable evidence to support the use of sports drinks, gels and bars, as they are a convenient and portable source of carbohydrate that can be consumed during exercise, in training and in competition.

Nutrition for adventure racing.

TLDR
There is considerable evidence to support the use of sports drinks, gels and bars, as they are a convenient and portable source of carbohydrate that can be consumed during exercise, in training and in competition.

Fluid needs for training and competition in athletics

TLDR
The individual sweat responses are so variable that athletes should assess their own individual sweat losses to determine if these are likely to be a cause for concern and when appropriate, euhydration will best be ensured by consuming 6 – 8 ml · kg body mass−1 of a sodium-containing fluid, or sodium-free fluid together with food, about 2 h before exercise.

Fatigue and illness in athletes

TLDR
Strategies to offset the negative effects of the products of metabolism are presented and gastrointestinal problems during running can negate any training benefits and some suggestions to reduce this problem are proposed.

Review of the Food Guidelines in Continuous Ultramarathon

TLDR
It has been found that athletes fail to meet nutritional and water recommendations and it is important to provide runners with not only accurate nutritional guidelines, but the correct way to accomplish them to finish the event and to prevent episodes that compromise their health.

Nutrition for the young athlete

TLDR
An appropriate dietary intake rather than use of supplements (except when clinically indicated) is recommended to ensure young athletes participate fully and safely in athletics.

Carbohydrates and fat for training and recovery

TLDR
Although there is new interest in the recovery of intramuscular triglyceride stores between training sessions, there is no evidence that diets which are high in fat and restricted in carbohydrate enhance training.

Nutrition for travel

TLDR
The irony of travel is that it often places athletes at a greater risk of failing to meet their specific nutrition goals or succumbing to illness, at a time when the demands or outcomes of performance are of greatest importance.

Physique and performance for track and field events

TLDR
Evidence of the importance of physique in the athletics disciplines is supported by the persistence of certain characteristics over long periods, despite marked secular changes in the source population, to result in physiological benefits such as effective thermoregulation or a greater power-to-weight ratio.

Innovations in athletic preparation: Role of substrate availability to modify training adaptation and performance

TLDR
Diet – training interactions with the potential to alter training adaptation and performance are discussed and there has been a resurgence of interest in the potential for protein ingestion to improve performance and/or promote training-induced adaptations in skeletal muscle.

Influence of carbohydrate supplementation early in exercise on endurance running capacity.

TLDR
In conclusion, CHO ingestion during the first hour of exercise improves endurance capacity go a greater extent compared with water alone.

Carbohydrate intake and recovery from prolonged exercise.

TLDR
A high carbohydrate diet restored endurance capacity within 22.5 hrs whereas an isocaloric diet without additional carbohydrate did not.
