Still so so SO busy over here getting the last details worked out for my first 100 mile run.
Finished the pace chart
Created the crew T-shirt Logo
Went for a longish run/hike to see how the trails held up in the recent rain. While desperately trying to go slow enough since I am tapering. Now is NOT the time to blow all my training.
I’m trying to organize my food and nutrition into some sort of order. Here’s what’s on the menu (both food my crew will have available for me and my trail food).
- Moon pies
- Hammer caps
- Hammer perpetuem
- Pay days, nut rolls
- Filled clif bars
- Lara bars
- Apple sauce
- Clif Bar sweet potato pouches
- Clif Bar Mango banana coconut pouches
- Crystalized ginger
- Skippy Peanut butter bites
- Honey and chocolate peanut butter packets
- Chocolate Milk
- Ritz Bits with CHEEZE
- Those tiny chocolate chip chewy granola bars
I decided a couple months ago that calorie restriction in any form and training/running 100 miles was not compatible.
Lastly I’ve composed my DNF list. Here are the only reasons to DNF
- Broken bones other than fingers, toes, and noses.
- Missing an aid station cut off
My race strategy?
Go slow and keep it simple. Don’t be an idiot in the first half and don’t be a wimp in the second.
