2.5 easy miles with my wife MikíL. Legs feeling stiff after sitting from an extended time, but after stretching they feel pretty good.
I decided to write down my food intake and training stuff the last couple days before the marathon because I had absolutely no problems with my stomach or going potty during the race. In fact I didnít have to go #2 from the time at the starting line porta potty until sometime Sunday afternoon.
Anyways Iíll find this info useful before my next race and maybe others might benefit from it as well.
Ran with the club 5.5 miles with one mile at 5.20 pace at 7p.m.
Came home and ate:
1 can salmon (like a can of tuna, but salmon)
Ĺ an avocado
1 bowl of noodles (from Costco or Albertsons) like ramen noodles but in its own bowl
1 mixed 16oz cup of Cytomax from powder
In bed by 9:30 p.m. and watched TV until 10:20 then tried to sleep
3 mile run @ 9 a.m.
Bowl of Honey nut Cheerios
1 mixed drink of Cytomax
Got ready and went to Marathon Expo at Noon
Drank a 32 oz bottle of Cytomax during the day while out and about
Went to lunch at 2 p.m. at Samaria 21
Chicken Teriyaki Bowl (chicken and noodles)
A little tofu soup and some salad
2 Ĺ sushi (California roll style)
Bowl of white rice
Water with lemon
We messed around town and went home at 5 p.m.
Prep for run (all my stuff together)
Ate: @ 7 p.m.
1 Bowl of noodles (not the whole thing)
Watched ďWithout limitsĒ
In bed by 9 p.m.
Day of the race
Up at 4 a.m. sharp
2 pieces of wheat toast with very little butter
Ĺ a vanilla power bar
1 mixed cup of cytomax from powder
Trip to toilet at home
Shower and shave * I like to feel fresh for a race
Get everything ready and out of the house by 4:45 to meet people at rec center by 5 a.m.
Ride up in van with some of the Japanese delegates
Ate on ride up:
1 more banana
Other half of power bar
Sipped on more cytomax
At starting line by around 6 a.m.
Stretched, talked with others, porta potty 2 times before the race. One trip because I had to go and one trip about 15 min to start just to make sure we were clear for take off.
Strip off warm cloths and we are off
While running I had bottles mixed with Endurance fuel (GNC product) and plain flavored GUís at mile markers 11 and 19.
Thatís about it. Iíll definitely follow something like this in the future and would have paid a good price for something like this in the past. If you have any other questions about this just ask.
