A quick question about how to cope with intensive training/sports.
I’m doing tough mudder in a 8 weeks. It’s a 12 mile assault course, and I need to up my training now. Previously I would have relied on carbs for doing endurance training, but it doesn’t really fit with this way of eating. Or do I just have to make sure I have the right sort of carbs, i.e. buckwheat etc??
I’m going to be stepping up the training even more after tough mudder as I’ve signed up for the Blenheim triathlon again, and I’m targeting an elite time (sub 1 hour 20). So same question goes for that really. When I’m in the swing of it I’ll be doing 2 x 3km freestyle swims, 2 x 10k runs and 2 x 30km bike rides per week.
And in February next year I’m going skiing again. I’m a go hard or go home kind of skier and normally lose weight on my skiing holiday despite eating 3 breakfast, a large lunch and a 5 course meal in the evening plus lots of beer and wine! I’m worried that there will be nothing left of me!! Any advice would be gratefully received!
