I have a race this Saturday, infact it's my first race. What should I eat for breakfast before the race?
I need to not have my stomach hurt me.
Also is gateraid the best thing to have in my two water bottles?
Its personal preference but I like to make scrambled eggs (2 eggs) and 2 pieces of toast with butter on them and a glass of OJ. It doesn't make me feel stuffed, but its enough food to give me the energy I require for the next 2-3 hours. Others I know prefer Oatmeal with fruit in it, cereal w/ banana and one of my friends makes pancakes. Its all what works for you.
I wouldn't put sports drink in both bottles, but your stomach likely reacts differently than mine. It really depends on the length of the race/temperature/etc. to determine how much water you will require. In a 60km race I usually only bring 1 bottle unless its scorching hot. If I do bring 2, I usually make sure that one is strictly water.
