Coast to Coast nutrition plan review

November 28, 2016

 The Coast to Coast is a tough race that requires a solid nutrition plan so you get through in one piece. 

 

In the following video we review the following nutrition plan that a viewer sent in and talk about ways that it can be improved. 

 

Coast 2 Coast nutrition 2016, longest day

Hi Matty, below is my nutrition consumption ( I’m happy to share it with anyone) for longest day C2C 2016, how many calories is this and was it too much or too little, (I planned to take all this it wasn’t a guess, had assistance from HAMMER supplier, then added a bit to be sure)

I had used all these products regularly in training but most of my long workouts were 5.30 max mountain / river runs x 5, 3 hour paddles ( heaps of those), there was one 11 hour leg day but that was because we got lost in the Ruahine ranges and nutrition was good that day……had terrible stomach cramps on the final ride into town, got off bike 3 times because I didn’t know if it was going to be a number 2 or a fart !!!....have you heard of other people having trouble… any solutions??,

I’m guessing your familiar with HAMMER products…..it was a 16.45 hour day for me.

Cheers Jason
