As a coach, one of the most common questions I get from my athletes is ‘what should I be eating on race day?’ – or something along those lines. What to eat, when to eat, how much to eat? With a plethora of information out there it is quite easy to become overwhelmed with what ‘protocol’ to follow; high carb? low carb? What even is high carb? Carb loading = more equals better right? But then why am I suffering GI upset come race day?
