Description

You will note that I plan my carbohydrate, sodium, caffeine and total fluid requirements based on the duration (and to some extent the expected climate) for the race. As for the main features of the bottle, the new spout cap is a great upgrade from the Radian, as the rubber gasket is removable - making it easier to remove stain collected below it. The main cap's gasket is also improved, where there are no ridges anymore, but a smooth surface, making it less likely to hold onto stains/gunk - easier to wash! Lastly, the rounded bottom of the bottle does indeed make the shakes I make mix better. No residue collected below, and less things to scrub. Lastly, which isn't a promoted feature, the opening of the bottle is slightly larger, making my whole hand easily fit inside and reach the bottom of the inner side - again, making it easier to wash. After all, if you’re putting weeks and months of training into achieving a goal, what’s a few more hours spent at a computer crunching a fueling and hydration plan that accompanies you on your journey? Further reading Do I profess to now being perfect when it comes to nutrition on race day? No chance. I still stuff up and I’m still learning and refining. We’re evolving beings and the beauty of endurance sport is we’re operating in constantly changing environments and race settings. As an endurance athlete, I’ve certainly evolved my understanding of what my body is telling me at different stages of a season, a training week or during a specific race scenario. What I may have once perceived as ‘good fueling’, I may now see as inadequate. Or what I may have considered signs of dehydration in the past, I now understand that I’ve perhaps underdone my sodium intake. Lessons from the field

Survival of the fittest doesn’t just reference physical fitness, it also reflects the rewards on offer to those who are smart. Making a plan, practicing it, and executing on race day may not guarantee everything will go well. But it’s a huge step in the right direction. I remember being 38km deep into the marathon during the 2016 Challenge Wanaka Triathlon. I had about an eight-minute lead when both hamstrings cramped up. While I managed to grovel to the finish and take the victory, I was left a little traumatised by the threat the cramp presented at such a critical moment in my race. Never again, I thought to myself, would I put months of training and preparation into an event but leave my race day nutrition to chance like this. On this occasion, my targets were 90 grams of carbohydrate, 1500mg of sodium and 1000ml of fluid every hour. I also took 200mg caffeine at approximately 95km into the bike phase after collecting a bottle at the special needs station. Know Your Numbers I was in need of a new thermal shaker bottle as my first generation Radian bottle was losing its insulation, and the top cap is collecting gunk even after thorough washes. This bottle not only captured what I love about the Mandalorian's suit, where it is brushed metal with a modest contrast (my Radian bottle was also the brushed metal variant); but the Mando' print and associated Star Wars logos feels premium, where it will remain there even after regular washes. You can FEEL the print, and it isn't like a simple decal/temporary tattoo kind. I firmly believe we must have a different approach to nutrition on the bike versus the run because the stressors (such as mechanical gastrointestinal stress or heat stress as the day warms up) differ between each.We are evolving beings. No, I’m not pulling a quote from Charles Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’. I’m referring to the way we evolve through experience and refine how our body and mind interact. This was a turning point for me and I’m now more thorough in my race day fueling planning. I've individualised my plan based on experience, practice and past mistakes. As a passionate student of the sport, I’m always refining my strategy based on the unique learning that each race offers and the way the research continues to offer insights into how best to optimise nutrition strategies. My IRONMAN Fueling and Hydration Strategy

I swam and biked solo all day, then managed to run through a number of tiring athletes on the marathon to finish 5th with a marathon time of 2:51. A big influence on my day was definitely the nutrition I managed to consume based on my plan during the 180km ride.
