The G's arrived yesterday (new running shoes). I know, what sort of nutcase names/labels their shoes but, you can see below there is a method to my madness. This morning I took them out and broke them in Tara style, yep figured anything under 20 miles wouldn't do :). Their first run was a nice 21.2 miles. Yay! They felt great. Just love the first run in a new pair of shoes. Hopefully by the end of tomorrow I can report that I hit 80 miles in 3 days. This is the last week of hard core training before Rocky and I am really trying to put a hurt on my legs, so far I can report I am doing a good job. I am finding that my toe socks keep the blisters (and missing skin area) from last week from rubbing each other so that is definately tolerable. I also think I have figured out my race nutrition issues. I am going to use Chews:
Then after 2hrs I am going to add in some Ensure.
And then for fun I will mix in some GF Pretzels and I think Peanut Butter with them but not sure on that yet.
Ok, so that is what I am bringing with me and then from the aid stations I will pick up potatoes chips, m&m's, flat coke and bananas. That should round up my food intake for the race. Please keep your fingers crossed that I don't get a wonky stomach. Everything I read says to expect some puking during the 100 miles but dang I really don't want to throw up so home this plan works. 200 calories an hour. Pleanty of water and fingers crossed.
