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
[av_video src=’https://youtu.be/KsZNZAvf5bk’ format=’16-9′ width=’16’ height=’9′]
- OptygenHP & MultiV
- Bottle of Ultragen made with chocolate almond milk
- 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.
- One serving EFS-PRO Lemon Water + 1 scoop PreRace
- 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)
- 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)
- 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
