I made the mistake at Ironman Hawaii in of not taking in enough water and paid the price come the end of the marathon. In cooler races, you expend more energy so you need to increase your carbohydrate intake. In Hawaii, you still need to fuel and take on those carbohydrates but the most important thing is to take on water and salts.
Heat and how it impacts your Ironman Nutrition Strategy
If you fall behind with hydration, or push too hard, you can really pay for it later in the day. I was really keen to put together the perfect race. I did a decent job of that but on that day it was a little cooler on the bike than it usually is in Kona.
There was a bit of a breeze. Also, you get these heat pockets throughout, which is the heat coming off the lava and you get different wind directions. Being aware of crosswinds — wind is a big factor.

Pros can ride at between 80 and 85 per cent of their threshold power. The biggest thing with this is having a heart rate cap. Get your fuelling right If you have burnt too many matches early on and your heart rate is elevated it will get you later in the race. Try to implement fuelling into your training, taking in g per hour, which is probably what you need for this event.

Getting that taper right can be very specific to each individual. Sorry to say this.
Is it just me or has Taren changed from a humble age grouper just like any one of us, who trained hard and talk about setback and adversities, to someone who just tried to say nice things to get sponsors and free stuff, rub shoulders with elite pro-triathletes and name drops all the time in almost every recent videos, acting like they are best friends? Most ecperienced ultra mararathoners tend to say that when racing in heat, cold drinks intake is the worst idea of all.
As odd as it may seem. When you drink cold liquids, what your body first does in order to digest them is to heat them up. And this proces of heating, well, produces heat as a by product. So what you actually achieve, is exactly oposite to cooling down.
Yes, your subjective feeling is the one of relief cold Coke after a workout in heat…. My bad and unhealthy habit. But you are then actually doing yourself harm. Cold should applied externally. Best place: armpits, where big arteries are.
