Re: Eating Before and During a Competition

When I did my first comp I did a dry run a few days before at the gym. I took some snacks and drinks and ran through a few of the WODs from the competition at about 80% and drank and ate what I thought I would on the day of the competition to make sure none of it would upset my stomach. That was my biggest fear was that eating different than I normally do or drinking more shakes than I normally do would mess up my stomach. Luckily, all went well. I probably have a more sensitive stomach than most though. ha

Now, that's a really good idea. Nothing worse than getting gas or the runs in the middle of a workout! Especially a competition

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Eva
Did you compete yet?

Re: Eating Before and During a Competition

Yes, I did compete. I wasn't hungry at all and had to force myself to eat eggs at 5 in the morning.

During the WOD I had some almonds, a protein drink, a bar, and finally a sweet potato.

Embarrassed to say I got 20th out of 23 people competing but I'm just glad I didn't die.

Hopefully next time goes better! I think I may try a team WOD in lieu of an individual.

Good work Eva!

The only person you need to compete with is yourself. Just being there and getting through it is commendable.

You showed up, put yourself out there - thats something that not everyone is willing to do. Certainly not something to be embarrassed about.

Good work!
