I’m training for a half-marathon coming up in January and I had to take off a few days on and off due to illness and then a mildly twisted ankle. This weekend is supposed to include a long run of 8 miles (!) according to my training program. I have a special-occasion Italian dinner on Saturday (yikes) so I’m letting that serve as an unofficial carbo-load and trying for the 8 on Sunday morning.
Anyways, it is raining here as usual this time of year, so I hit the treadmill and got in just over 6 miles, at about 1 hr 10 min. (I’m slow, but that’s okay). At about the 50 min I could actually feel the glycogen draining away and my legs running out of gas, so I ate one serving, or half a package, of Clif Shot Bloks (100 cals, 24 carbs, 0 fat, 0 protein).
I’m experimenting with these different energy/carb shot products right now but I hope to find a real-food alternative soon that will fit in my dork belt.
