As the aquathon series is in the evening focusing on your nutrition during the day is key to a successful evening race. Believe me this is something many an athlete does get wrong. Over the day focus on sources of carbohydrates from whole foods this will provide a more regulated and steady stream of glucose into your bloodstream as you digest them. Steady blood sugar will decrease your likelihood of having low energy during your race. Many of these foods are easily digested if consumed in the right quantity and won't leave you with a heavy stomach pre race.
