As a fitness athlete, she has adapted a diet for this new challenge. «I am on a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet, with carbohydrates adjusted to withstand a harder workout.

This periodization of carbohydrates is used by a large number of ultra-endurance athletes, and is similar to the techniques used by certain professional cycling teams, "he explains.

"Most of my training in the morning is fasting. I have done enough long distance races to know that, looking to the future, I can plan what I think my body will want and need, but when you are really competing you may want something completely different.

Therefore, throughout these long days, I will try that everything I have been practicing remains the same; However, I will feed my body with whatever I want just to keep the reservoir full «.
