This week's tip is from Padre Mora: "Practice nutrition! This is as important as swim, bike and run workouts, and varies from short course to full distance. Start figuring out how many calories you need to consume to finish the race. For short course, you're responsible for your nutrition. For 1/2 and full distance, if you know what is going to be on the course (Gatorade Endurance, Clif bars/gels/blocks), pick some up at your local tri-store and practice with it. If your body doesn't respond well to those products then it is even more important to figure out what your body can handle and how to take enough on the course with you."
