This weekend Alfred ran the Loskop 50km Ultra Marathon. He was hoping to get a time of 5h30min…His final time – 5h16min!
Not bad for his first ultra on the Banting diet.
How did he fuel himself for the race? The night before he had a meal of fried eggs and boerewors. He then started the race on Saturday without having anything to eat. He made sure to drink a lot of water at all the fuelling stations then at the 25km he was craving something to eat. He got one of the guys at the station to give him a piece of boerwors and that kept him going until the end!
Water and boerwors for 50km. Great going Alfred!
