I am wondering if carb loading is worthwhile for an important, but shorter race.
I do have a race this weekend (nothing like planning ahead!) that has me wondering: Should I try carb loading for it? The triathlon should take between 2 and 3 hours.
Nate has done it for longer races. I can do 100g per hour while training (longest session was 90 minutes – not enough races this year to test myself for longer race efforts). Will carb loading be worth what sounds AWFUL in terms of eating for such a race?
Coach Chad says for longer events like Leadville. But shorter ones?
