I guess this will be my first post here, so… hi I’m Ben.
I’ve been low-carb and/or keto since 2011, I’m also an avid runner, but I never really went all-out on races. So far my winning nutrition combo has always been homemade apple sauce (with a bit of pea protein, coconut oil, and lemon juice), and sweet patato puree (also with coconut oil + salt).
But here I am, 17 days aways from my first 100 miler, the Istria 100 in Croatia, and I’m seriously considering packing only eggs and avocados, and some electrolytes in my flasks.
So my question isn’t “have I lost my marbles?” because I already know the answer to that one as I’m running it in sandals, but rather: Does anyone here have similar nutrition experiences and tips to share? I’m in uncharted territory and could really use some feedback.
thanks a bunch!
