Why Nutrition Is Crucial for Triathlons
(According to a 6-Time Ironman World Champion)
A triathlon is one of the toughest—if not the toughest—endurance sporting events in the world.
Six-time Ironman World Champion Mark Allen knows what it takes to excel in the sport. Voted the greatest endurance athlete of all time by ESPN, Allen held a 21-race winning streak from 1988 to 1990. Now as the head of Mark Allen Coaching, he’s helping the next generation of Ironman athletes race at their peak.
Not only do you need to fuel yourself during your workouts, but you also need to feed your body with high-quality, nutrient-dense food post-workout so that you have all of the building blocks to recover, repair, and replenish.
—Mark Allen, Six-Time Ironman World Champion
For triathlons, training is undoubtedly important. But according to Allen, recovery is an even bigger factor, says Allen. “Push beyond what your body can recover from for too long, and you’re going to start getting exhausted, tired, and burned out—and you’re not going to be getting the benefit from your workouts.”
Proper nutrition plays a direct role in recovery.
“Many people don’t eat enough to recover from their training, so their body starts wasting away and they start getting weaker instead of stronger,” he says. “Not only do you need to fuel yourself during your workouts, but you also need to feed your body with high-quality, nutrient-dense food post-workout so that you have all of the building blocks to recover, repair, and replenish.”
