Talk-O Tuesday with April Zilg – Paddle Nutrition and Physiology (June 28th)
Ocean Academy is proud to host a nutrition discussion with Carolina Cup Champion, Author, and Team USA athlete April Zilg. Join Pro-Paddler and Data-Nerd April Zilg for a 1.5 hour talk about paddle specific nutrition and physiology! We’ll discuss the science and myths behind sports nutrition, current trends, and optimizing your training time on the water. We’ll cover macros, micros, supplements, nutrient timing, and everything you need to cultivate better nutritional intuition so you don’t spend all your time counting calories (who has time for that?). We’ll discuss the processes that go on in the body when you’re training for specific events and how to ensure you’re training the right physiological systems for your goals. Expect to walk away with new tools & strategies to take the guesswork out of nutrition & training; including three incredibly easy changes you can make tomorrow that will enhance your athletic performance.
Since this nutritional talk happens during dinner hours, please pack food. If you’d like, pack your favorite pre-paddle dinner (what you would normally eat the night before a big training session or a race) and be prepared to “share” with the group! Not the food, but the recipe, what it is, why you like it, and what you think it offers nutritionally.
Time: 6:15pm- 7:45pm
Location: Baby Beach, Dana Point Harbor, Grass area behind main bathrooms.
Please arrive 10 minutes early to check-in.
Bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and something to take notes with.
