Julie913 Posted December 18, 2017 Share Posted December 18, 2017 I'm starting the Whole 30 Jan. 1st and I am in the planning for success phase now. I am currently trying to trouble shoot nutrition options for a 50K I have coming up on Jan. 20th, so day 20 of the program. This is my first 50K however I am an experienced endurance athlete (10 marathons 5 of which were ironman marathons) so I have that to draw on, but I have always fueled on typical surgery foods....sports drink, gels, chews. I don't have any time goals for this race, it's really just 'for fun' thing with a friend so I am not worried about speed as much as am I am about bonking. I am thinking I will need to make sure to have higher carbs that week leading up to the race and on race day fuel with dates, dried fruit and nuts, tiny potatoes, almond butter, and bananas. Does anyone have anything else that has worked for them? Homemade foods? Or advice to give me? I really think not having sports drink may be the hardest part? And needn't to have the right food planned and prepared to eat at then end since I probably won't be able to eat what's being served. I typically don't really want a big plate of vegges after a 6 hour race! haha! I am also worried about recovery and not being able to have my typical recovery shake right after....and the answer is probably no but would this be an occasion where a bag of potato chips would be acceptable? What are some foods that you have found to satisfy that 'I'm starving I want salty potato chips and pizza' craving I often get after a long race?
