You spend hours on the bike, pound the pavement for hundreds of miles and spend a big chunk of your free time in the pool. You are a triathlete, driven by passion, working towards a goal: your next race.
You have probably planned every training, and even studied the race course. But do you know what is the most important factor on race day? It is your nutrition!
Not paying attention to proper nutrition is like starting a Formula 1 race without gas in your car: it just won't work!
NUTRITION IS VERY PERSONAL
Not all athletes are the same, and neither are their nutritional needs. Ideal recommendations will depend on:
- sweat rate
- the temperature
- length of the event
- your goal : personal best or just avoiding gastrointestinal trouble?
Confusing?? Maybe, but it doesn't need to be. Not anymore.
