Race Day Breakfast
Hopefully I'll get a little response as new to the nutrition side of life, previously when taking part in the sport I just ate what I felt like (but that was back in 91-93 when I was relatively young and no forums were on hand to assist) - however, now I am older and a lot wiser (hopefully), I believe it is extremely important hence my question/plea for some advice.
I am enquiring about race day breakfast's what foods specifically people have found helpful (energy wise to endure 6-7 hours and avoiding the trip to portaloo's) - I've read all the quantum physics and mathematical advice out there but still none the wiser... So looking for something along the lines of avoid: Fruit and Fibre/Toast - try: Bananas etc. Or at best a few peoples race day breakfasts so I can test and adjust what works for me.
Additionally it may assist to know what my goal is, I am looking at completing the middle distance 70.3 Mallorca event in May 2015, and as such looking to tailor my race day preparation to a fine art (1. as I'll be aboard and 2. to ensure no GI distress during my lengthy event), further help along these lines would be fantastic as travelling aboard can upset the stomach and appetite even more.
Thanks for any time, assistance and advice, all the best - JH
