Trying to compose this post about race fueling strategy and I keep getting distracted by this photo 🤣 I’m already looking forward to ice cream next summer
ANYWAYS! Let’s dive into some things that I’ve learned about fueling before/ during/ after the race. I just want to preface this post by saying that what works for some runners may NOT work for you! For example- some runners love peanut butter before a race and I’ve found it doesn’t work for me.
I’ve also found that meat & potatoes the night before a race work really well for me. Pasta- does NOT. Also a race that ends with a thanksgiving dinner is the BEST 🙌🏻
I’ve really been loving making my own homemade gel and separating it into personal serving ziploc bags. I found the recipe in the cookbook, Run Fast Cook Fast Eat Slow
Post long run I love to get in fuel right away and avocado toast with a smoothie is perfect 👌🏻
do you have a favorite fueling strategy?
