Don't get sick during your next Comrades

Into the next edition of the Ask Coach Parry podcast, it’s another double header today. Lindsey Parry joins us, I’m Brad Brown. Lindsey, had a question in regarding nutrition during Comrades, actually a couple of them. Collette Brighton wanted to know; why do so many runners end up vomiting on race day?

Then also had a question in, also along the nutrition lines, from Charl du Plessis saying how much and what should you eat immediately before and during the race. He says he thinks he bombed out and he puts in brackets ‘I think’ because he didn’t eat properly before. He ate almost nothing during the race and it was probably combined with a bad day. I think those two questions are quite linked, what’s the story with nutrition and why do people get sick at Comrades on race day?
