Foods before and in a 30k trail running event?

(David Cooke) #22

Well done! My problem with carbing up is that this is where my sugar cravings start. I have started to take Coca Cola mixed with electrolytes on my races. Seems to work!
Making sure I get plenty of protein into my system the night seems to help both with performance and recovery…


What night for the protein, the night before or after the event/training ?

If I had to guess, I’d say both, but probably best afterwards. Could help with repair of muscle, and GNG to replace glycogen.

Could before also work? As a longer term fuel source? An interesting theory, and one I’ve never examined, so don’t know.
