Bob Seebohar is the author of Metabolic Efficiency Training and was the sport dietician for the 2008 US Olympic Triathlon team. His feeling is that the reason endurance athletes have GI issues on race day is because a lot of them are taking in twice as many calories per hour-he feels that 80 per hour is sufficient- than they need. If you are gearing up for a marathon, an ultra, a triathlon or a long bike ride, this conversation is for you.
Asker Jeukendrup (pronounced You-Can-Drop) is a 17 time Ironman finisher who works with two of the world’s greatest endurance athletes, Chrissie Wellington and Haile Gebrselassie. What is the best fuel on race day? How does someone going as fast as Haile actually get any type of nutrition into his body while running a sub 2:04 marathon? What makes the Ethiopians so amazing? Asker was a wealth of information and a great interview.
