Endurance athletes may choose to fuel up on carbohydrates and rev up their glycogen stores before a big event. Canada’s ninth fastest female marathon runner, Nicole Stevenson, offers these tips to help you with loading:
1) Do a trial load to see how your body responds.
2) Consume primarily carbohydrates for two days
before the event.
3) On race day avoid high fibre foods.
4) Make sure everything fully digests before the event.
