Our consultant nutritionist, Madhusmita Jena, thought it apt to talk about carbohydrates and carbo-loading with this being a packed race season, everyone is building it up to clock another personal best or reach one goal on their long list and, nothing can go wrong. Well, lets think that through again after reading how unprepared we can be post all that rigorous training. Nutrition, as we spoke about in our first featured article, is a key element in any athlete’s life and their goal achievement. Another key element is pre-race prep – a tapered training schedule, well rested legs/body and enough fuel in your muscles. Read on to know the abc-s of pre-race carbo-loading and sealing that thumping finish at your next race.

Bhatti Lakes Ultra is just around the corner. If you haven’t been tapering yet, now is the time. See you all at the end of the month.

Have a good race.
