Ride Distance: 160k (100 miles)
Expected Time: 6-7 hours
Fueling goal: 300 calories per hour (to match my Ironman target)
Target Calories: 1800-2100
Total Calories Burned: 4000+
4 Gatorade bottles @130 each = 520kCal
5 oz gel flask @110/oz = 550kCal
6 oz gel flask @110/oz = 660kCal
Banana = 70kCal (ok, it's solid, I admit it!)
eLoad package + extra Gatorade power = 330kCal
Water bottle = 0 kCal
Nuun tablets = 0 kCal
Total = 2100-ish
I'll stop for water, but other than that I'm all set! The Nuuns will compliment the gels with some missing electrolytes.
This really is a test of how I'll feel with a liquid and gel diet for an entire day... in theory, it should be more easily tolerated in a stressed GI tract, but reality and theory have a way of diverging on me at the wrong moment.
It took me less time than anticipated, just over 6 hours.
I ended up having about 10 ounces of gel, and 5 bottles of Gatorade, one eLoad. Pretty close to my goals. Everything sat well, except for the eLoad... I don't know if it was because it was at the end of the ride or something in it, but my stomach didn't like it as much.
I have my Ironman nutrition plan: 300 calories of Gatorade and gel.
Solids are overrated.
Do you plan to do the same on the run for IMC?
That's the plan... I've never had much luck with solids and running, too much jiggling around.
