Race Day Nutrition
A middle distance triathlon (or 70.3) is extremely demanding on the body. The correct nutrition strategy will help you get the most out of your race and you will enjoy it more but do you know what and when to eat and drink on race day? Getting your nutrition right can make all the difference to getting across the finish line and having fun, so check our our middle distance triathlon training plan to help you plan your nutrition strategy for the race. We recommend you try out your race day strategy in training too.
- Our HIGH5 Triathlon Pack is filled with everything you need to support you on race day! This includes a Race Belt to hold your race number and to carry your gels
- Energy Drink is a must for any long training session, especially your longer rides. This scientifically formulated carbohydrate and electrolyte solution helps you sustain your performance and enhance your hydration during endurance exercise. Simply add the powder to your water bottle.
- Energy Bar is an easy to chew, great tasting bar filled with real fruits and grains to provide you with both simple and complex carbohydrates to keep you fuelled before and during race. It’s easy to carry with you so you can fuel on the go
- For an energy boost before or during your ride, we recommend Energy Gel Caffeine Hit. Just like Energy Gel Aqua, each sachet delivers 23g of carbohydrate energy but the Caffeine Hit also contains a high dose of caffeine (100mg). When taking part in tough sports events, caffeine contributes to an increase in endurance performance and capacity. That means you can go further than before!
- Energy Gel Caffeine is smooth with a light consistency, making it easy to have on the go. Same as Energy Gel, use this when you need an immediate energy boost – with an extra 30mg caffeine.
- A delicious tasting recovery shake for after your race. Recovery Drink contains 18g of whey isolate, a top quality source of protein which contributes towards muscle growth and maintenance. Muscles become sore and stiff when they are stressed. Make sure you refuel with both carbohydrate and protein within 20 minutes of finishing your race.
