Today on Coffee & Questions I talked about race nutrition during the back end of an Ironman, in particular the run.
With Cairns IM only 8 weeks away, now is the perfect time to be perfecting your Ironman race nutrition plan.
Here are the key points I talked about today:
Success in an IM comes from minimal fatigue from the swim and bike
The types of foods suitable for running - eating on your feet
The importance of practising with on-course nutrition
Train your gut! This includes both nutrition AND hydration
Do Sweat Testing to understand your individual hydration needs
Explore any cramping issues
What Caffeine options are there on the run?
Don't try anything new on race day!
