I have a lifeguard requalifying exam coming up on May 15. Here is the breakdown of what I need to do:
Report to the pool by 7:30 AM, swim 8 laps in under 2:55, & run 1 mile in 8:00
Physically I am in shape and ready to go, however I am curious as to what you could recommend to eat prior to taking the plunge on this test!
Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, Thanks! :)

What do you normally eat before a workout?
If that does the trick, it should work for your exam.
Maybe more slow-release carbs just to be sure.
(Caffeine is a pretty reliable performance enhancer, but there's a danger of reactive hypoglycemia. Fine if it happens post-exam, not so good if it happens during.)
