After a much needed shower due to the sweaty-but-totally-worth-it trails, I scoffed down some lunch & got my notepad and pen ready to learn all the Nutrition / Hydration tips I could from these experts.
I won’t go into all of the detail here, but there is some really good info on the Find Your Feet website. One of the articles on ‘Fueling for Performance’ you can view here: http://www.findyourfeet.com.au/blog/files/fueling-article-oa.pdf
From now on I will be hydrating with water, Shotz (electrolyte tablets mixed with water) and isotonic gels (as they don’t have too much sugar in them). I will probably be trialling some of the bars too so I will keep you posted.
After the session I had to leg it back to Sydney for a concert with my best mate, Melissa. I had bought us tickets for her birthday (which is next weekend) to see Paramore. Thankfully it was being held at Homebush and not all the way in the city. So after an enjoyable night with Mel I drove myself back up the mountains and tried to get some sleep for tomorrow morning’s run. I knew I was going to feel tired, but it would be the shortest run of the camp so I thought I would be okay.
I got back to our room at 12.45am and crashed……..zzzzzzzzzz
