What to eat on day of a big Event - breakfast
Ok i got myself confused on what to eat day of event. Such as if event is in morning or noon. Should one have a big breakfast. Yes i do have good meals, 48 hours prior and day before of good carbs etc.
Recently I just did a long XC ski race. i eat well day before. So morning of event. I thought you should also have good breakfast? i guess i was wrong.
this is what i ate 3.5 hours prior to the ski event, for breakfast
For morning of event.
2. orange juice
4. 3 slices of toast - peanut butter
5. lots of water
this was around 8am with event starting at 11
on route to event around 10am on bus
1. part of granola, - harvest crunch
That about it
however at stop of one rest station prior there was gatorade which i had and it was hot
otherwise nothing else odd here as most foods normal and was eating healthy days prior
So into the event about only about 13minutes into event of skiing. I got into a crisis. I got the "runs" I was forced to stop and jump into the bush and let it all go. and i was that way rest of the event,
probably one of my worst skis all year.
Now I have a few 100 mile mt bike events for in about 2 months i am doing
So please please give me an idea of what to eat the morning of event for a breakfast? as i do feel i should have something in the tummy, but am i eating too much? or too much fibre?
All the best suggestions on this?
Should i eat very little when event is in the morning for breakfast?
