Our expert says:
Wow! You are tough! To eat a high protein diet while exerting yourself to such extremes is not necessarily a good thing.
You will need about 60 -75 carbs per each hour of training / racing – thus make sure that you take along energy drinks that contain fast and slower releasing carbohydrates and a bit of protein to sustain you. These products are not unnatural – they are in fact liquid food and are just what you need! At most you can eat some oats and yoghurt before the race and take dried fruit and peanut snack with you if you feel like munching something.
Don’t be foolish – look after yourself!
Good luck with the 94.7 – let me know how it went!
