Toaster

thank you for your prompt and informative answer.

It has backed up what I have observed in myself. I def leave it too long. I have found oat type solids work for me. What we would call flapjack. Not a fitness food but plenty of carbs.

Thanks again

Jason...I wish that I could eat some solid foods while running/riding.  I really get to want to eating something solid and actually chew something.  going for almost 14hrs in my Ironman not eating anything solid is rather boring.  I started chewing the ice chips they were handing out.  that seemed to help!

as they say "drink before your are thirsty and eat before you are hungry". 

I know people who have eaten fig newtons for ironman...and felt fine.  So, you know...its what works for you.  Just start early is the key.  and experiment -- before race day.  it took me quite a few years to get that dialed in and i have made changes recently -adding in an occasional gel when i feel like it is new this past ironman training season.

I attempted to run 5 miles on Saturday and came up sort.  I was listening to my body for once and stopped about 2.77 miles.  The ground was extremely hot and I could feel it through my Bikila.  Instead of having to go through blood blisters again I decided to stop. 

I skipped Sunday to let my feet rest and ran on Monday.  I got in my 2.2 mile route with the dog.  I ran it in about 20:00 minutes.  I had to stop and let the dog pee.  I am starting to think that the design of the Bilkila is causing some calf tenderness after runs.  I am haven't really looked at them closely, but I wonder if the forefoot is lower to the ground than the heel.  That might explain why I have calf pain after runs, because I am running more on my forefoot.

"drink before your are thirsty and eat before you are hungry" says it all really.

The ground was extremely hot and I could feel it through my Bikila. how hot was hot to feel it through Bikilas?. When cruising the med in July the keyside/dock was very hot through my classics when standing. Given the extra thickness of the bilks. How hot was hot?

I think it was in the 90 degree area (32C) with high humidity.  The surface I was running on was black and there was barely any shade to be found.  I ran on the grass a little to try and go further, but the process had already started.  I could feel the start of the burning sensation in the pads of my feet. 

I added leather to the top of my rubber huaraches yesterday and wanted to try them out.  I don't think I have to tie down right because I could feel a blister would have formed if I continued.  So I took them off and ran 2 miles barefoot.  I would recommend running at night and my bruised heel would agree.

32 deg. That would coincide. Walking was ok, standing felt like feet cooking.

Wow....awesome track session last night!!

Repeat of last weeks 25 x 400 (2:00-2:15 pace); 1min rest.  I hit the first at 2:11 and then settled into 2:05 by the third interval and that's where I basically hovered the remainder of the workout.  I felt really, really good out there.   I was basically alone out there on the track as it was getting darker and darker -- quite a few people came and went over the 1:15 I was out there.  After about the 12th interval I just got into a groove and felt as if I was floating along out there on the track - I just wanted to keep running and not rest. 

I did bring my bladder pack with LOTS of water and was eating some gel and some hammer endurolytes as well as anti-fatigue caps and endurance amino caps.  It seems to be a good combo for me - my energy levels were great the whole time.  I was feeling a bit tired about 30min in, took some endurolytes (2) and that was the end of feeling tired!

I am now looking forward to my attempt at the 20 x 1 mile.  I am definitely heading out on the road instead of the trail this time!  Although, it is harder running fast with a full bladder pack on!  I think of it as training weight -- when I get to the race and can run without it I will feel super light and fast!

I just finished a 2.2 mile run with the dog.  If I am going to take him with me I should really consider running barefoot.  He slows my pace considerably and I know he can barely make that distance in this heat.  I guess I could just stop wearing a watch and enjoy the run.

Tough 10 today.

Could not get out as early as I would have liked as had to pick Delia up from work. Hey ho. Got to Jen's about 9.  Getting warmer all the time. Have to confess to walking a couple of times today. Looking at garmin 305 info, classic case of cardiac drift. Perspiration = loss of fluid = lower blood volume = heart has to pump more often to sustain level of oxygen required.

1/2 marathon trail race (http://www.fallsburghalf.8k.com) yesterday in my Bikilas.  Awesome, awesome run.  Very hot, but with enough water it was fine.  The bikilas were the perfect shoe:  60% trails, 30% rocky dirt road, 10% pavement.  I had a better grip on the downhill dirt sections than all of the other runners with me, and I faired much, much better on the dirt road than Jason did (barefoot) on the same stretch during the full marathon (http://barefootjason.blogspot.com).

I did ~ 3 miles this morning, about 2 of which were in my Nike Air Zoom Streak XC 2 flats. This is my third run in them, and I like them quite a bit. The last part of the run I did entirely barefoot and it felt AMAZING. The perfect weather was an added bonus. An awesome way to begin my day.

I picked up some compression shorts after experiencing some chaffing over the weekend.  I ran 2 miles on Saturday and 5 miles on Sunday.  The 2 miler on Saturday was barefoot.   The 5 miler was in Treks.  I really need to tighten more shoes more before I start running or avoid getting the treks wet.  I might really have to look at the sport treks for a trail shoe.  At least trails with creek crossings.

I tested the compression shorts out today with a 2 mile run.  They worked well.  I think that is the route I am going to go from now on.

Track session last night again....this time only 4 x 400!! OK...that seemed very short compared to the 25 x 400 (2:00-2:15/400) I did the last 2 weeks in a row on Wednesdays.  Anyhow...this time the pace was 1:45-1:59/400.  I nailed them all: 1:46, 1:42, 1:41, 1:41!   My fiance stopped by to watch and he gave some good feedback -- on the first one he said that I was running very upright and that did I need to lean forward more...so I did, and my pace dropped for the 2nd one.  I am very happy with these times on only one minute rest! Ran in my KSOs instead of my bikilas...I think they are faster...think I am going to keep wearing the KSOs for speed work. 

Also did half of my warmup, about 1/2 mile, totally barefoot.  It was nice as they just swept the street that morning! Definitely getting more used to total barefoot as the road was not very smooth in certain parts and it was not an issue for me anymore.

I ran 5 miles in treks on Sunday.  I got them wet and they started to slide around.  That then caused blisters on my right foot.  I guess I should tighten them a little more than I think I need just in case they get wet again.  I ran 2 miles on Monday and 4 miles on Tuesday.  I took yesterday off to let the blister heal.  It was feeling that great.  Plus I think I needed a rest.  I did manage to run the 4 miles with a 9 minute per mile pace.  I think that is a good improvement.  I think I normal ran a 9:30 or 10 minute pace prior.

Started out as a practice run ended going for it. Something really has changed recently. Run better quicker than slower. But quicker feels easier. Although done 5.46 miles which is very close to 6. Have never ran anything like this pace in a race. Hmmm? Raining all the way. Quite nice.

Details here. http://connect.garmin.com/activity/45247481
