Meet Nutrition Guidelines
Night Before: healthy lean protein, carbs (aka pasta), drink lots of fluids (such as sports drinks and water), get to bed early, stretch while watching tv/on exlectronics, pack your swim bag and lay out clothes
Morning Of: hydrate, quick 5 minute stretch when you wake up, eat a good breakfast (bagel and eggs are best), check your swim bag (towel, cap, goggles, suit, snacks, fluids)
During: small light snacks are best such as fruit, veggies, crackers (my go-to was always Goldfish), granola/powerbars, sports drinks (Gatorade, Powerade, VitaminWater, Propel, ect.), juice is not the best because there is too much sugar that will dehydrate the swimmer and water does not have enough electrolights or any sugar to keep engry moving
After: eat within 30 minutes to an hour of a healthy meal with all protein, veggies, and carbs (sandwhich/hoagie is the best!!!), hydrate with mix of water and sports drink to bring back electrolights.
