“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” – Benjamin Franklin
This was my first every triathlon. And overall, it could not have gone better. With so many variables, if everything goes to plan as you have played it out in your head. You can not ask for much more.
Looking back on the event. The two best items that contributed to the majority of the success were:
- Salt Sticks
- Gu Energy Mix
The complete list of everything I used during the week, and in training prior included:
- Bio Trust Nutrition Slow Carb
- After Glow Recovery Formula
- Bulk Supplements
- Gu Salted Carmel Shot
- Energy Mix by Gu
- Hydration Mix by Gu
- The Pro Bar: Coconut & Almond.
- Justin’s Almond Butter with Maple Syrup.
- Salt Sticks
More importantly, I tried many more products on the market. These are the ones that worked for me. And I could not encourage you enough to do the same. Test everything for yourself and find what works for you.
I did extensive research on everything I tried. The list above is a stellar list of products that will aid your performance. Some of the most expensive on the market as they all contain the very best ingredients. So if you are looking for a place to start. I could not recommend these enough.
Every time I get to the airportI always kick myself.
“Chris, you have forgotten again!”
No, I am not talking about my passport.But not packing food, while waiting for the plane. No one is a fan of being ripped off, and like concert venues, airports have you at their full disposal to take advantage of your credit card.
- 1x Bullet Proof Coffee & 1x Bullet Proof Bar would keep you going for hours and save you from eating that over- priced McDonald’s food they serve throughout the airport.
Start fueling hours before the event. We asked for large portions and they delivered.
Get out and away from the hotel and tourist traps when abroad. Enjoying some local food. Fresh Ahi Tuna, Brown Rice – $9
Eating where the locals eat. Possibly the world’s largest pancakes – $9
