Meal plan like Shalane Flanagan

Flanagan has released a meal planner so that runners can plan their nutrition like they plan their training

Shalane Flanagan

Shalane Flanagan has written two cookbooks to inspire runners to eat whole foods, eat well and indulge in the process. Her third book comes in the form of a meal planner to help runners schedule and plan their eating like they plan their training.

The cookbook includes 12 original recipes, recommendations for eating seasonally, advice on training, blank space to take notes on dot-gridded paper and weekly sample meal plans. By keeping track of their nutrition, runners can spot holes in their eating habits, catch fueling errors and get inspired–just like in training.

Flanagan announced her retirement from professional running in October and shifted her efforts to coaching with Bowerman TC. The former NCAA champion, American record-holder (5,000m and 10,000m), Olympic silver medallist and 2017 NYC Marathon champion was a staple on the American running scene for nearly two decades. She’s closing out one of the most impressive and consistent running careers ever by an American woman.

This new role means that Flanagan’s influence on the running community is far from over, it has just shifted. On top of her role at Bowerman and her cookbooks, Flanagan has started calling races and participating in live broadcasts.
