Up until starting my new line of work, I competed in numerous triathlons a year. I considered my self pretty typical....high carbs, high carbs and then high carbs. I have been doing crossfit now off and on for about 2 years and religiously for the last few months. I also have changed over to the "Zone Lifestyle" about 3 months ago.
My question is, up until 2 weeks ago, I had only swam once and biked 3 times in the last 1.5 years. I did a moch tri 2 weeks ago and swam 1.2 miles, biked 30 and ran about 5. Call me crazy, but I am signing up for the GFT 1/2 Ironman in Clermont, FL in October. Can anyone out there give me some advice on nutrition????? Do I need to go back to my high carb diet during the race, or can I maintain the zone idea...but maybe eat more frequently and increase the carb ratio slightly???? I was pleasantly surprised to see that crossfit training and running was enough to keep me in the game.
