“I tend towards moderation when it comes to diet, during both active and recovery phases of my training. I avoid strict diets because I want to give my body what it needs; and it usually tells me what that is. When I’m gearing up for a big race, I usually bump my calories up by 10-15% so that I have stores during long runs and so that I can recover appropriately during my active recovery/off days. I also increase my protein intake since I can offset the muscle damage caused by long runs and lifting weights. “
