Metabolic Testing and the Bonk
By Coach Morgan Hoffman
As many of you know, I spend a few hours every day getting to interact with retail customers at the Playtri McKinney Store. It’s a great experience for me as a coach, because I get to hear and consider all the questions that athletes have regarding the sport. It often leads to quality conversations that hopefully have a positive impact on the athlete’s training and racing.
A common question prior to every big Ironman race is “I’m trying to figure out my nutrition – what should I do/use?” I always hope athletes are asking for a race months down the line, but more often than not, they’re asking for a race in a week or two.
