I ate 10000 kcal in one day

Honestly, I was not on solid ground when going for a nutrition strategy for my 24-hour ride this summer. My options were either my normal Ironman-distance race nutrition which is mainly gels or my normal training nutrition which is mainly bread with peanut butter, honey and banana. Or the third option which is something in between. I went for more training like nutrition and luckily it worked out very well, with enough energy and without stomach issues.

«Poor Man´s Snickers» – the best long distance low intensity race nutrition out there 😀
This müsli energy bar from my sponsor Baker Hansen contains a solid 400 kcal. A quarter of a bite each quarter was enough to keep me on track calorie wise. I had five of those in total.

I am also lucky enough for work with PrecisionHydration which have one awesome Sports Scientists in Abby Coleman. She broke down my nutrition intake and got some interesting numbers. Read more about it in the blogpost on PrecisionHydration. Spoiler alert. 10000 kcal was a slight exaggeration but 9934 kcal is still an impressive amount to eat while riding 😀
