Why First Endurance?
As a Lyme’s disease sufferer on a gluten-free diet, I’m extremely picky when it comes to training and race nutrition. Off-road triathlon presents unique nutritional demands and challenges, one of which is the difficulty in eating and drinking during technical mountain biking. First Endurance has helped me solve this problem – enabling big electrolyte intake per gulp, great palatability in hot and cold temperatures, and great gut absorption — and all gluten free.
My Nutrition Plan
XTERRA Nutrition Plan
Every morning I take Optygen HP and Pre-Race to get me going.
Breakfast: (approximately 7 am) 1 bowl of white rice with maple syrup. 1 bottle of EFS-PRO lemon flavor.
Race Start: (9am race start) I will sip on Wild Berry EFS Liquid Shot 45 mins before race start.
On Mountain Bike Nutrition: I have 2 x 24oz water bottles with EFS-PRO lemon flavour all of which is in my camelbak.
Run Nutrition: I sip on a flask of EFS Liquid Shot Wild Berry throughout the run and take small cups of water at every aid station.
Post Race: Within 60 min of finishing the race I have a serving of Ultragen Chocolate flavor.
Post Race Food: Normally post race I love a big veggie salad with lots of greens, baked salmon and a sweet potato. I crave savory things after all the sugar during racing :)
