First 10k Down, Great Learnings
This past weekend I completed my first OW 10k, swimming the Bridges to Bluffs event in Knoxville. (by the way, if you're looking for a great first 10k this is a good one; admittedly with current assistance)
I fed along the route because I know I'm ramping up for longer training swims and have been trying to get my body used to eating while swimming. For B2B I used an electrolyte drink and honey stinger gummies. They worked fine, but I lost a lot of time stopping to chew the danged gummies. I need to get quality calories in, and quickly. Everyone who finished ahead of me (I was 5th female) never stopped.
It's been a while since the Nutrition posts have been hit on, so I figured I'd ask- is Maxim still the most popular go-to, or are others emerging on the scene? I have some time to find what works best but wanted to see if you all could help spark some ideas. Thanks in advance!
