Why First Endurance?

I choose First Endurance because so many high level professionals before me have used it. It is the only nutrition company I have come across that focuses on endurance athletes. I am very impressed by the amount of research that goes into their product. They look at all aspects of training, racing and recovering. I would not choose any other nutrition product because it would not take me as far as First Endurance can.

My 70.3 Nutrition Plan

Dinner before: The night before a race I like to keep it very simple. My favorite is just pasta with a red meat sauce or lasagna. But when it comes down to it, just getting in a good meal is all that I need.

Breakfast: I am not fully committed to any one breakfast before my race. I have had eggs and toast, even bacon if the race is not too early. But most races I stick too oatmeal for simplicity. You can make oatmeal no matter what. This makes it very easy when you travel to a lot of different hotels and are not sure what will be there.

Pre swim: Right before the race I will take a couple of swigs of the EFS Liquid Shot and some water. I find it is really important to have some calories right before the race since you usually have had breakfast a few hours before.

Bike: On the bike I aim to consume 300-350 calories an hour. The amount of water I take in is dependent on the temperature. I use EFS Liquid Shot to get my calories in and put EFS-PRO in my water to make sure I get my electrolytes.

Run: On the run I look to eat 200 calories an hour of EFS Liquid Shot. I take in water and whatever electrolyte drink they have at the aid stations.

Post: A whole CAKE!! But before I get to that, I make sure I have an Ultragen Recovery shake. I race a lot of races two to three weeks apart so it is very important for me to start recovering from a race as soon as possible.
