Mike, moderators et. al.
I am always looking to upgrade my knowledge on what to advise sprinters to eat during a meet. Some of the invitationals we go to are all day affairs. My better sprinters can sometimes run up to 6 races in one day including prelims. We always tell them to bring something light and nutritious like bagels, granola bars etc as well as plenty of water.
For the experts on board, what would you advise? At the end of a long practice we drink chocolate milk to recover, but I don’t advise it during a workout or in the middle of the meet because I think that could cause some GI issues. I’m thinking about the ratio of protein to carbs and the ease of digestion during a 6-10 hour day.
