Nutrition and health matters

Everyone has their own ideas of what  (and what not) to eat and drink before, during and after a long distance event.
What suits one individual may not suit another but below are a few tips:

  • Every stomach reacts differently and you need to find out in training what suits you.
  • Drinking enough before the event will get the system into gear.
  • Protein as well as carbohydrate intake is needed in ultra events along with appropriate fats such as fish oils and vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Only drink fizzy drinks to clear wind as they make you feel full; do not have much tea or coffee as they are diuretic.
