Nutrition Tip – Iron for Women
Ladies, you’re going to need more iron as you start training or train for longer races. Aim for 33 mg per day from lean meats, dark leafy greens, or fortified cereals. You’ll get the most absorption if you also include a high vitamin C source. Popular combinations are beef and red bell pepper stir fry and fortified cereals with orange juice.
