While swimming can be a great all-round workout, it is important to eat well to get the right benefits. A look:
60 Mins: JACKET POTATO WITH TUNA
Unprocessed carbohydrates from the potato drop your chances of getting an upset stomach during the swim. They should be fully digested by the time you dive in. The tuna? If you want to swim like a shark, eat like one.
IN SESSION: WATER
You lose fluid when swimming but don't notice it because you're already drenched. Keep a bottle at the side of the pool and drink four big gulps of water for every 400m you swim, to keep your hydration levels up.
+10 Mins: NUTRIGRAIN CEREAL BAR
With swimming knocking off so many calories per hour, the sugar in the bar is the quickest way to bring your energy levels back to normal...and satisfy your sweet tooth too.
