I need some ideas please. I'm scheduled to row a 75km Ultramarathon on the 22nd October and this is gonna take a serious lot of carbs to get through. I can't do it just on OJ and jellybabies
Breakfast will hold me for the first two hours (maybe) of rowing. After that I can use the OJ for another couple of hours. Then I will definitely need to eat but it needs to be easy to get down, very digestible
(or I'll just throw up), and not got that ghastly sugary undertaste that most sweet things have.
The most important criteria is very quick to eat because time spent munching is added onto the clock!
I don't much care for bananas or they would be ideal. I thought of rice pud but it's a bit heavy. So is Oat-so-simple. I can eat that kind of thing before exercise provided it gets a while to settle down, but not if I need to eat and keep going immediately.
Anyone got any ideas? I asked the other rowers I know but they all eat bananas. My husband is happy to do the prep and just pass me the bowl when I need it.
