The Plan

I tend to be on the lower side of calorie intake and tried increasing my bike calorie intake by primarily drinking the on course Gatorade Endurance Formula instead of primarily water. My nutrition plan was to set an alarm to eat a shot block every 15 mins on the bike a drink Gatorade often in between. Then running I would drink a cup of Gatorade and a cup of water through the aid stations. I would eat a Gu near aid station 4, 8, and 12.
