During a trail run, a lot of energy is used and that is why it is very important to use adapted sports nutrition products.
This Trail pack contains the necessary energy products to use the days before the trail and on the day of the race itself.
BEFORE THE TRAIL
- From 3 days before the marathon, you can start increasing your energy reserves. Use 150g 3Action Carboloader per day. This can be done by dissolving 60g in 500ml water (or another non-carbonated liquid) or by adding for example 1 measuring scoop (20g) to your yoghurt, pasta sauce, soup, etc. in order to increase the intake of the carbohydrates without having to eat huge quantities.
- Use a 3Action Energy Drink Lemon just before the start of the marathon to keep the blood sugar level stable and leave with a filled fuel tank.
DURING THE TRAIL
- Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking 3Action Sports Drink regularly. Ideally, every fifteen minutes a 150 to 200 ml drink, under normal weather conditions. The 3Action Sports Drinks in this package are individual portions, convenient to take along on the go.
- Use the 3Action Nougat Blocks and the 3Action Carbofruits at regular intervals during the trail. Try to take an average of 60g of carbohydrates (sports drink included) per hour.
- During difficult parts of the trail or towards the end, you can use 3Action Energy Gels or 3Action Liquid Energy Gels to quickly and easily provide you with the necessary energy.
- When you have taken the concentrated 3Action Energy Gel, rinse it with a sip of water / sports drink.
- At the end of the trail, about the last 45 minutes, you can take the 3Action Guarana to get an extra boost. Guarana, is a natural form of caffeine and provides a boosting effect. In addition, Peppermint has been added to the 3Action Guarana, giving you the immediate feeling that you are taking more oxygen.
