Daily Nutrition Plan for Endurance Training
Below is a guide to timing of nutrition during various endurance training days in your schedule. The focus is to maintain carbohydrate stores for performance during sessions and recovery with additional carbohydrate, protein and small amounts of good fats.
Timing of nutrition can be the key to avoiding gastro-intestinal (GI) distress such as nausea, cramping, diarrhoea or vomiting during training or an event.
Try various sport nutrition products to determine the brands and types that work best for you. Many are also able to be substituted with real food alternatives or homemade equivalents.
This plan should be used as a guideline and is aimed at maximising performance rather than weight loss. For more information check out our blog on Racing Weight.
