Running Tip of the Month
Wait for about two hours after a meal before running
“For most people, two hours is enough time for food to empty from the stomach, especially if it’s high in carbohydrate,” says Colorado sports dietitian and marathoner Cindy Dallow, Ph.D. “If you don’t wait long enough, food will not be properly digested, raising the risk of abdominal cramps, bloating, and even vomiting.”
As anyone who has tried to run on a full stomach knows, the up-and-down movement of running can cause food to move faster through your digestive tract, which can make you feel nauseous and/or bloated. To make matters worse, the blood that normally flows to your intestines is rerouted toward your legs as you run, thus impairing digestion. By eating early, you can be certain that the food won’t still be sitting in your stomach by the time you lace up.
The Exception: All runners—and their stomachs—are different, and some can head out the door sooner than later after eating. What you’re eating matters, too. You can probably run 90 minutes after a light, high-carb meal, while you may need up to three hours after a heavy meal that’s high in protein and fat. You can also grab a small snack that’s low in fat and protein but high in quick carbs 15 to 60 minutes before a run.
