A little about Food !
- What does one eat during world runs... ?
Its not the grand' gourmet program for sure, but the priorities are more basic: to get the needed energy as fast and efficient as possible with as little use of preparation as possible.
This amounts to:
Breakfast, a few chocolate bisquits and 0.5 to 1liter softdrink (fanta, sprite, 7up etc.).
During the run, some bisquits, 100-200gram of chocolate, a bit of salt if its warm, 1-1.5liter water and 1-4liter of softdrink depending wether its a long or short run and wether its warm or not (on the stages across deserts the amount of water/softdrinks can get up to 8-9liters per. 50km stage, and in cold conditions down to less than 1liter per. 50km).
After the run, a little chocolate, 1 liter of softdrink, a few fiber bisquits if they are avaliable.
Dinner, 1-2 cans of baked beans/corn/spaghetti/mixed vegetables (fresh cold from the can' - to save energy. No use pouring time and energy into cooking them; the time is better spend recovering). 0.5liter of water, 1- 1.5liter of sofdrink. 200-400gram of chocolate. Extra salt if in hot or humid contries.
During night, 2 small meals of 100gram of chocolate, a few fiber bisquits and 0.5liter of water - to keep the bloodsugar high and the recovery maximal. But not so good for the teeth (its a compromise/matter of priority - to keep the teeth or to do the runs and set the records).
Well; that is the normal setting at 'restaurant world run' :-) Naturally it depends largely on what is avaliable in the contry and on the contry I run through. But the nutrition composition is usually more or less the same, though the actual products then vary a lot according to the local food supplies - which especially in Sahara, East Africa and Siberia can be at times just as big a chalenge to find as to run the daily distances themselves. Making the world run an even more interesting challenge in total ;-)
