A 2.4 mile swim, a 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run. While that may sound like many peoples' idea of torture, it's actually what makes up an Ironman triathlon. For many people who want to push themselves to the limit, this is the ultimate test of endurance. Yet with such extreme exertion, nutrition is not only important but crucial to your safety.
No matter how fit you are or how hard you've trained, the extreme nature of an Ironman will leave you bereft of energy unless you refuel on the go. If you want to make it over the finish line you should make nutrition a priority.

So you've decided to run a marathon. It's the ultimate test of endurance, and sorts out the men from the boys. But it shouldn't be entered into without a lot of planning and training, unless you want to set yourself up for failure. Nutrition plays a huge part in this, and it is one aspect that is often unwisely overlooked, or not given the attention it requires. What you put in your body is essential in allowing you to push yourself come race day, and if you want to be running rather than crawling over the finish line you should make nutrition a priority.

With so many on the market, though, and still relatively little known about them, it is hard to choose which is right for you, and what exactly they do.
