Day before Race Nutrition
Tomorrow morning I am running a half-marathon with a goal of finishing in 90 minutes.
First off, training for this race sucks. I have started to eat sweet potatoes and although I have felt that it helps with long runs, my arms have gotten smaller and my abs are slowly dissapearing. This will be my last race for a while.
However, I was wondering what I should consume today. I plan on drinking a lot of water, then tonight for dinner I will have chicken breast and 2 sweet potatoes. Tomorrow morning I will have black coffee and a sweet potato 2 hours before the race, then maybe a banana an hour before.
I was wondering if anyone has found other food items that have helped with their time on long races. If anyone has any suggestions/tips they would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!!! and wish me luck!!
