Thanks to everyone who recommended Infinit!
After a lackluster performance at Black Bear two weeks ago, I posted for nutrition advice, and decided to order customized Infinit.
Yesterday, at Eagleman, I ate a larger pre-race breakfast and then only used Infinit on the bike by preparing a 3.5 hr bottle.
I'm pleased to report that I had a great run & great race. I cut 70 minutes off my Black Bear time, 10 minutes off my Timberman '07 time, and PR'd with a 6:20 minute finish!
It definitely gave me confidence that I can finish Louisville in less than 17 hours & I'm grateful for the nutrition advice!
Congrats on your PR!
Question: If you're training for IM, do you train and race half-IMs with the Ironman-distance formula?
Agreed. I switched to Infinit two years ago and it works great! I have a hard time eating on the bike and it gives me all the nutrition that I need.
I use the Ironman formula for long rides and all my races (sprints to full Ironman).
I'm using a customized formula that has about 260 cal/bottle, which tracks with their Ironman formula. For yesterday's race, I made a highly concentrated, 3.5-hr bottle (that's 3.5 scoops of Infinit in a 20 oz bottle). I sipped it, and then drank water throughout the race.
I've heard that some people order different formulas for use in different distances.
