The question I get most frequently from athletes is about how much fluid and nutrition should be consumed during workouts and races. In spite of the data, athletes in all sports and at all levels have found it a challenge to create an appropriate personal nutrition plan. When insufficient fluid and nutrition is consumed, muscle fatigue occurs. When too much fluid or nutrition is consumed, GI distress can result.

A general misconception is that insulin is only involved in energy and fat metabolism. When energy needs are high, insulin transports sugar from the blood into the muscle where it can be converted into energy. When energy needs are low, insulin facilitates the conversion of excess sugar into fat where it can be stored for future use.

Numerous studies have shown that the incidence of depression is higher in the elderly. It has been suggested that this pattern is associated with serotonin, a brain chemical that influences mood and behavior. Normal aging is associated with a decline in serotonin levels. At the same time, there have been many documented studies showing that people who exercise experience less depression. These studies suggest that exercise provides a protective effect against the development of depression in older individuals.

Every endurance athlete has "bonked," or "hit the wall" at some point. 30 years ago, scientists believed that extreme fatigue, or bonking, was a result of lactic acid build up. However, research has shown that the causes of fatigue are more complex. There is general agreement that fatigue has two components: a muscle component and a brain component. The question is whether they act in concert or independently.
