There's lies, damn lies, and then the contradictory advice of sports nutritionists.  So its champagne now we should be drinking, not red wine?  Make your bloody minds up!

In the meantime I'll continue to enjoy a healthy, balanced diet of fruit, veg dairy and occasional meat and fish.

It's hardly contradictory advice because it doesn't say anything about red wine.

Conclusion: drink red wine and champagne.  Job's a good 'un.

Fastest marathon runner I know personally (2:17) drinks pints and eats pies...not sure if they are linked but it's worth a try!

Choisty, is Alf Tupper still alive then?

 i am really liking the idea of drinking pints and eating pies to run 2.17 marathon, only problems i can foresee would be what type of pint and what type of pie, i think carring a back pack with all this while running a marathon might slow you down a bit, a realistic target would 2.30 to be fair.

will try it out tonight with 3 pints and a packet of crisp, do not want to over do it as i am not used to this type of training !!

I'm not too sure drinking any alcohol is a good idea to be included in your training. Yeah sure have a glass of whatever to relax and enjoy yourself. But hey imagine...down the local off licence....a bottle of bubbly and a bottle of red...trying to stay healthy..jesus. What Bull

I'm interested in a raw fruit and veg diet. Heard it's amazing. Does anyone know where I can find details to fit in with a 10K training plan?
