Why First Endurance?

I simply couldn’t train as hard as I do, day in and day out, without the whole First Endurance Product line. I know that I am fueling, hydrating, and recovering well.

On race day, I know that my nutrition is working for me, not against me, and my results have been better, and more consistent because of it.

My Ironman Nutrition Plan

Breakfast:

  • OptygenHP & MultiV
  • Bottle of Ultragen made with chocolate almond milk
  • Banana
  • 2 Envirokidz rice krispy bars
  • 6 Laughing Giraffe snackaroons

I also sometimes use coconut milk, because the fat profile is a bit better. But I don’t worry too much, and almond milk is easier to find.
(Approximately 1,200 calories)

NB: I have pre-determined that I need A LOT of salt.  The amount of salt I consume is not recommended for all. I used to take a lot of salt during the race. Now I preload with an electrolyte blend before the race.

PreRace:

  • One serving EFS-PRO Lemon Water + 1 scoop PreRace
On Bike at Start of Race & Special Needs:
  • 2 x 24 oz bottles with 8 scoops EFS-PRO on bike and 1 x 18 oz Elite aero bottle with 10 scoops of EFS-PRO
  • 2 x 21 oz bottles with 6 scoops EFS-PRO in special needs

(Approximately 1,000 – 1,500 calories depending on accessibility of special needs)

On Course/Aid Stations:
  • water and/or on-course electrolyte drink (Gatorade is currently at WTC races) as needed depending on weather and accessibility of special needs

(Approximately 200 – 600 calories)

Run:
  • Coke and Gatorade at every aid station on run.
  • I cary salt “in case of emergency” but rarely use it anymore.
  • Regular water bottles with concentrated EFS-PRO  – 6 scoops in 10 fl oz or so – in T2 bag & special needs. Will grab these or not depending on weather and how well I executed bike nutrition
