- What to eat on a solo 24 hr?

Steak and stilton pies, washed down with Double Chocolate Stout… most of the food groups are covered there.
Top it up with wee free samples from the power bar trade stand.
I got a gold at a cheddar enduro on that race diet (beating geared guys too I may add)Posted 8 years agotwinklydaveSubscriber
whatever you buy won’t be what you suddenly find yourself craving at 3am, but go for easily digestable, not too strongly flavoured things (your rice pudding, macaroni cheese etc were spot on).
If you’ve got someone cooking for you, omlettes can be good…though the best food i’ve ever had at a 24hr race was a congealed cheeseburger at SITS in the middle of the night last year 🙂
(obviously ‘proper’ energy bars/gels are bestest, should ASDA stock them…)Posted 8 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Don’t try surviving solely on energy stuff, it’ll play havoc with your insides! Anything quick and easy to grab, try and get a hot meal at some point but otherwise eat what you want, when you want. Little and often is the key.
I like easy-to-eat bits of fruit like grapes and cut-up apples, it freshens up your mouth and removes the horrible aftertaste of sugary drinks. a big bag of mixed nuts/dried fruit is good for energy. Honey, jam or peanut butter sandwiches work well too.Posted 8 years agooxym0r0nSubscriber
A tip I was given last year was that this is the one time it’s good to go shopping feeling hungry. Buy whatever you feel like eating and is going to be easy to prepare. Something you can look forward to…
I loved my can of “all day breakfast” at 7:00am doing Twentyfour12 solo last year (strange I know), honey roasted cashews/peanuts also do it for me, smoothy for something fresh, instant porridge…
Stock up on as much carbs as possible for the rest of this week too!Posted 8 years agotrail_ratMember
