  1. You aren’t going to need near that much nutrition dude. Maybe a gel before the swim, a drink mix for the bike (drink it all) and a GU if you feel you need it before the run. Olympic distances are only going to be 2-2.5hrs.

  2. True, it looked like a lot when I was typing it. I just don’t want to be in need and not have it available. My plans are gu before swim, drink on bike and gu on run as you suggested. The rest are more of my security blanket!
