Carbo loading

Postby Konstantin » Fri Jan 01, 2010 9:36 pm

Last year I read Noakes' "Lore of Running" (thanks for the recommendation guys!) and took a lot on board. In particular carbo loading. I found that before I did so, my later splits were slower. With loading, they were more steady.

Right now I'm taking in over 500g of carbo per day, with potassium (tomatoes). A bit of research has drawn me towards bckwheat and quinoa, but rice, pasta, millet and potato waffles also feature highly.

Anyone else do this?

Are you carbo loading before races, or before every training session?

Google for "train low compete high" and you'll find some new interesting stuff about carb intake for sports performance. This was also the topic for a thread here some time ago
