Whenever I participate at a local race, I always eat at home the night before. This way I know exactly what is going in my mouth and can experiment on what works and what doesn't. I try to keep it very simple and avoid "carbo-loading", focusing instead on eating regular meal with plenty of vegetables, potatoes, brown rice etc.
The thinking is that I don't want to overstress my digestive system right before an intense race the following morning. It also helps keep my stomach working properly all night instead of waking me up during the night.
So I wanted to share a couple of pictures of the meal that my girlfriend made before the race tomorrow morning.
The quick yet delicious salad: Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Avocado mixed in with Romain Lettuce and a few pinches of Dill. Just Salt and Pepper for dressing:
