Fueling the racing season


Recommended Posts

I have several races coming up, a 5K, duathlon, triathlon and obstacle course 5k.


Not concerned about the 5K or the obstacle course but wondering how to fuel during the duathlon and triathlon?

Thanks for the assistance

Same boat here... I am planning this race reason to be my first season without gels. 10th year of racing. Finished my second ironman in sept and usually race 5 tris and a handful of running races per year.. My longest distance is only a half ironman this year so I think I will be okay experimenting this summer and getting my nutrtion figured out thankfully due to this forum!!! Some great ideas so far So just bought some ziplock type packs to carry my homemade gels in for. Last year during ironman training I did bring sweet potatoes to munch on after my 75+ bike rides and I was in heaven... I just had them sitting in my car for after. I usually need 300 calls an hour to not bonk so I will see what happens and keep you posted in the forums

Here's a ton of info on fueling on the Whole30.


  A friend and I both coincidentally started the Whole30 during our Spring ultrarunning season. We both had fantastic results overall and loved the program, but our running fared quite differently during this time.


My experience(s) running while my body switched over to fat burning:

Good luck!
