Looks like this thread is busy all year round. Does it really pick up in the new year when people start really focusing their training on Paris?


No..  its busy all the time...  this thread has been here for about 9 years now, maybe 10...   during that time there have been 4 babies, 1 marriage, a few relationship start-ups, a few divorces and lots of laughs...

It moves at a fast pace...   keep up..!

RR - that's exactly what I'm taking along.  I plan on using about one an hour (which is less than their prescribed dosage).  Interestingly, an article int he latest UltraRunning magazine says electrolyte replacement in events under 12 hrs is not necessary.


The duration isn't the issue.   The issue is that it will be hot and you will use and lose a lot of fluids.  Just drinking water won't help.

I've done some very long runs in very hot weather and my advice to you is to include electrolyte replacement in your strategy.

Basically, I think the work is done in terms of endurance. Now it's stay healthy and keep the legs moving.  Nutrition is also key now I think.  DV?


Hydration, electrolyte replacement and nutrition are critical.   Get these wrong and your day will be over sooner than you'd like.  Your stomach needs to learn how to digest real food on the move.  It's going to be hot, so you will lose salts as well as fluids and these will need to be replenished too.  Don't just drink fluids without electrolyte intake or you will dilute what you do have and that will make matters worse.  Practice, practice, practice...
