Very useful information I must say. I was wondering if having some energy drink can help recovering after the race.

It's not textbook (can you tell where I move on to the second pub?), but that's my best guess of how things will pan out on the day.

I wonder - is it permissible to take Adipex pills during marathon?

10g per kilo seems massively high to me - equiv of 20 bowls of cereal a day? I thought the idea was to keep the calorie level the same but to tilt away from fat and protein and into carbs.

Adipex ? Appetite suppressant ? Banned in competition - but I'd stay clear of drugs and marathons.

It's not like you can stop for a cheeseburger on route is it ?

I used these tips to help me through VLM 2013; however I still had to suffer muscle cramps around mile 20 and the was forced to walk/jog the last 6 miles to the finish line. I could not seem top up my electrolyte levels enough to continue running at a 4:30 pace. Finished in 5:20.
