Whats your food the day before...?

Postby JGSI » Sat Apr 06, 2013 11:50 am

A road race/crit/long sportive which gives you the best performance on the day?
Do you go balanced/pro carb/ pro protein or do you simply dont worry about it?

bit more carbs - no known gut irritants, plenty of water.

I don't worry about it for a crit - or a sportive.. but the local sportives aren't very tough.

I'd probably just try and eat properly for the whole week before a longer road race - but don't overdo it the day before.

Pretty much as others just good sensible food. My personal choice is chicken & pasta with simple home made sauce nothing to spicy for me the day before & in the morning make sure I have something pretty good either toasted bagel, porridge guess it just depends on what I feel like.
Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.
