Pre Race and Race Day Nutrition
With race season (Olympic and 70.3 distance triathlons) fast approaching, I have started to think about my pre race meals. I have been following the PB since January of this year and definitely plan on continuing to do so. However, my pre race meal of chicken pad thai for dinner with a peanut butter bagel for breakfast probably wonít sit too well with the stomach these days.
I was thinking about a big salad with chicken and sweet yam the night before. For the morning of race day, I would eat another yam with eggs and avocado.
What have other people done in the past for their pre race meals? Also, since I donít really want to eat PowerBars anymore during the 70.3 race, what have people done for calorie intake during the race?
