Unlike some wheat-based carbohydrates, potatoes never upset my stomach when I have them pre-run. I also love having the the night before a morning long run because I feel like the energy is ready to be used right away the next morning.
5-6 days per week
Several times a week I like to dice up a half dozen or so Yellow Potatoes, cover them in a homemade spice mix, and toss them in the air fryer.
Potatoes are quick, satiating, and light on the stomach.
I train for grand fondos such as the 170 mile cross Florida ride. I also train to stay healthy and fit for my family!
10-14hrs per week
Throw them in a ziploc and enjoy them as you ride. No extra prep needed.
I began using potatos for training once my rides reached 6+ hours. This is when the sports gels and bars were no longer satisfying. Once I began using potatoes, I realized how great they are and now they are the base of my training food!
