Doctors Orders- Racing tips from your team “Doctor”
This week I’m answer questions from you my loyal readers! (I know there is at least one of you out there) Christian from Portland Oregon says. “I’d like to learn more about waffles as a pre-race meal.”
Well Christian here’s some information about waffles. The waffle is an idea pre-race meal if consumed a few mins before that start. Not only does it provide a large quantity of carbohydrates that your body can burn as energy, but the variety of toppings can add to the fuel. For example if you like peanut butter and Nutella on your waffles like I do, you’ll get the addition of protein and a huge sugar rush right before your race! That’s great news if you’re looking to get that hole shot. On top of it’s ability to deliver vital nutrients right before the race, waffles are also light and fluffy and go down easy and don’t weigh you down during the race. So in summation Christian, eat waffles.
