Good Morning Everyone!!<br><br><b>RFTL</b>: I'm still figuring out gels/shot bloks and what works for me. If I do a long run of 20 or so, I'll take one, anything shorter-nothing. But, I really didn't eat nearly enough during my marathon. I guess I was running at such a higher HR compared to normal training runs, I was flying through glycogen. Big lesson learned there. I like stuff with extra sodium for down here simply because we sweat so much.<br><br>
For a half, I did take a gel in Miami--first time I tried that in a half. Two reasons were behind that. Caffeine, the people I stayed with the night before weren't big coffee drinkers and I only had a sip that morning. Practice for Boson, just to work on not loosing time while eating at a faster pace.<br><br>
I can't imagine needing the "sugar" for just a half, but we are all different and only experience will tell you what works best for you. Everyone burns fat/glycogen at different rates and gets different effects from caffeine.<br><br>
Running wise today, something indoors--record heat again today here. Cool front tomorrow, so that is going to be really awesome.<br><br>
Have great runs today, everyone!
