Check the articles below that show you how to get your race-day nutrition right and increase your chances of having a good race.
Mike Tyson once said that “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”. Well, that’s how it works during endurance events too. While making a pre-race nutrition plan is important, you must be prepared to adapt it along the way. You can never predict how your body will react on race day.
Make sure you practice your race day nutrition plan in training. Evidence suggests that the gut is trainable – in other words, you can improve your ability to digest carbohydrates on race day.
Taking the time to work out your nutritional requirements for a race can be a time-consuming exercise, but it's totally worthwhile. You invest a lot of time training to be physically ready for your race. Don't waste this hard work and jeopardise your race by being unprepared and unable to fuel your way to success.
