The day before the marathon or half marathon
Add one scoop of your favourite Fuel X flavour to 500-700ml chilled water and sip during the day and if you can repeat even better. There are huge benefits to pre hydrating as well as pre-loading carbohydrates which will impact how your body feels on race day.
The morning of the marathon or half marathon
Add one scoop to 250-500ml water and sip over the hour before the start of the run.
Just before the start gun goes off, drink one all natural, small batch Fixx Cold Brew Energy 50ml shot! With an amazing 150mg naturally occurring caffeine, the equivalent of a double espresso this shot will get you focused and energised for a strong start. This is your pre-run coffee! Enjoy! Being Cold Brewed this product is low in acidity and will mean you will not necessarily need to visit the toilet.
During the run
Drink 1-2 cups of pre-mixed endurance fuel as provided at the Refreshment Stations which are located at 5.5km, 10km, 15.5km, 20km, 25.5km, 30.5km, 35.5km, 40.5km on the full marathon course.
At the 25-30km mark, consume an all-natural double espresso Fixx Cold Brew Energy Shot! Small enough to carry in your pocket or running belt, the caffeine will help you to re-focus and the carbohydrates will energise you to get you to the finish line.
After the run
Drink 1-2 cups Fuel X in the Recovery Area after you have finished your race, grab a piece of fruit & water, stretch, relax & enjoy the glory!
