I’m about to do my 2nd spring triathlon. Due to my experience, I was given the status of triathlon master by parenting experts who don’t actually have children.
There is a lot of advice out there:
-focus on your hamstrings on your bike to save your quads for running.
-only drink while on your bike and only at the beginning for bathroom and cramping reasons.
-eat what you would normally eat so you don’t get sick
-eat carbs the night before
-eat carbs the morning of
-eat carbs so that you can be happy
-don’t eat carbs
I thought I would add my own two cents. This is what I do for a race:
I keep going until the finish.
I hope you find this helpful. If you do not, talk to the parenting experts.
