So I have two races this weekend, 45 mile RR with two climbs, and a Crit. Both about an hour from where I am going to be staying. So realistically it will be about 2-2.5 hours between the start of the race and my breakfast. I was thinking about 400 calories worth of oatmeal (I love oatmeal!). For RR. For the race/warmup two bottles of water with Gu2O. about 300 calories, and a gu packet around mile 20. For Crit. A water bottle with GU2O, packet of GU before the start, and just plain water for warm up. I figure it will hit right towards the end of the Crit. Recovery drinks are 16oz of chocolate milk goodness. :D I am eating plenty of carbohydrates during the week. So the "tanks" should be topped off.
