I spoke with retired pro triathlete Marko Albert about his Ironman nutrition plan.
“My race day nutrition was kept as easy as possible. Before race start eliminate all fruits and veggies. Drink plenty of mineral water and eat simple food (lots of rice, chicken broth, so on).
Race food itself was an act of juggling my wants and needs (depending on the temperature things below were adjusted).
Race morning food was coffee and bread with jam or honey.
1bar+1gel+ 2 Saltstick capsules+ 700m simple carbohydrate rich sports drink + some clif blocks per hour. I used SIS products my entire Ironman career and carried them with me where ever I travelled”
