RECORDED: September 18, 2020


A brief overview of optimal intra-training and racing nutrition practices and principles followed by an in-depth dive into how to think critically to right the course on the fly, when nutrition and hydration may have fallen by the wayside. Topics covered include the various nutritional and physiological factors to consider that might affect gut distress prevalence and severity, the ability to absorb gut contents in the future, and performance. Specific discussion is given to carbohydrate, fluid and electrolyte concentrations, consumption rates, and how they interplay with the various facets of a training session or race, as well as how to manipulate these variables opportunistically, to you and your athlete’s advantage.
