MAGIC MOUNTAIN MAN TRIATHLON PRE RACE REPORT
The 13.1 mile run is mostly flat around the lake on asphalt with some dirt.
Some of my most important testing during this race will be my nutrition. I’ve been using a liquid nutrition formula from a company called Infinit (http://www.infinitnutrition.us). I’ve been testing this product in training (at the recommendation of other Ironmen) and it’s been working great without causing any gastro intestinal distress. To give you an example, I did a training ride last Saturday of 97 miles and the only nutrition I had was 5 bottles of Infinit which kept me hydrated and fueled for the entire ride. No gels, cliff bars or Double Doubles. I will also be using a special formulated nutrition mix for my run from Infinit.
Praise God for giving me the, health, strength, determination and perseverance to do this race.
Here are my goals for this weekend.
SWIM - :45:00 (I know, still slow but it would be a PR!)
T1 - :07:00 (I’m not using my compression socks on the bike. I will put them on in T2)
