Race Fueling & Nutrition
Don’t Underestimate Race Fueling & Nutrition
Many athletes don’t fully understand the importance and value of proper nutrition while training and racing. Even those who do “get it,” don’t always have the most effective plan in place (for them). However, those that have their nutrition plan 100% dialed in, perform significantly better and recover faster.
To be clear: I am specifically talking about what an athlete consumes immediately before, during and after a race or training session.
It doesn’t need to be complicated. In fact, it should be as simple as possible so that it becomes thoughtless and easy to execute. Below I will provide 2 TIPS and a high level outline to help get you on track.
