Hi all, I would appreciate all advise as the race is less than two weeks away.
I've again entered in for Man vs Mountain which for those who don't know is a 23 mile trail race over Mt Snowdon. The problem with me is I have never paid enough attention to nutrition before, during or after the race. Typically during the race last year I had my first isotonic drink about around 5 miles and then some flap jacks at about 11 miles which is roughly the assent of Snowdon. I obviously did not replace lost energy and soon hit a wall. Although I finished the race it was more of a struggle than a canter.
what I need is advise on nutrition during the race, types of food, drink and how often to take it please as I want to put in a better effort. I have not learnt by my mistakes and whether it's right or wrong currently training by doing 11 mile runs with around 340ml of cordial with some salt and glucose mixed it and after I finish I do feel some what knackered.
So can you help me with my not too distance forward plannig for this race please.
