Overdone it?

Muddy that was a bit careless - hope it clears quickly.

Lit you've not noticed you've got a marathon coming up an awful lot for someone who hasn't noticed they've got a marathon coming up.

Good luck to everyone else racing this weekend.

I hope I have a good weekend but if not I know that I got lots of good advice along the way from you lot so thanks for your help in getting to this point.

See you on the other side.

Cheers, Skinny

Skinny - I thought you avoided wheat and sugar.


I do as a rule but marathon training has already weakened that resolve over the last 18 weeks as several hot cross bun fests have proved.

I am reminded why unfortunately as feeling a bit migrainous so will probably just eat normally tomorrow now.

I know we've discussed this before but here is my most common conversation at work this week.

'Is it your run this weekend?' 'Yes'

'What is it again a half marathon?' 'No, its a marathon'

'Oh, the London Marathon?' 'No, that's next week, I'm doing Manchester'

'Oh, far is that then?' [in my most patient voice] 'Its 26.2 miles, the same as London, all marathons are the same distance.'

Hopefully after Sunday at least I won't have to have that other tedious conversation about running when you get asked if you've done a marathon and if you say no they presume you are not a proper runner.

but the likes of Skinny 

 - whatever do you mean?

PS I'm pretty certain you're better twisting than tossing on a race day morning!

On the fibre front - I've no idea how much beetroot and dates I'm eating weight wise but it won't be hundreds of grams, just some beetroot slices in my baguette and a few dates on my porridge - just something to help my poor bowels process all these bloody carbs (Lit I just popped out for my hot cross buns and ate first two on way back).

Ah okay - I missed your point (as it was poorly explained).

If I wasn't worried about jinxing myself I would say

'I'm still expecting to shit as normal on race day morning so don't think i need to change my diet away from things I normally eat with regard to fibre'

however it would be stupid to tempt fate in that way so I won't.

Quite a lot of protein in there ? Steak, Tuna, Ham, Egg, I'd drop that lot tomorrow along with the beetrot and dates and concentrate on carbs.

Sports drink - yes DT

I've been doing a ZERO hydration tab a day this week and again next week. Don't fancy a repeat of the cramp i got last year.

Thanks for advice everyone.

Re protein - yes I think I mentioned I'm not eating that today and it was a mistake.

Re beetroot - beetroot is about 10% carbs, potatoes 17% carbs according to wiki and I like beetroot so that can stay in. Dates are 75% carbs so not sure why I should be taking them out?

Yes it was your cramp that has made me stick a tablet in my back pocket for the race but I won't be keen to use it.

EDIT: Oh good point Lit - add half a dozen hot cross buns to what I said I was eating today.

Yeah I forgot about sweet drinks yesterday and am going to try and use fruit juices and smoothies today as extra carbs. If it all sounds a bit unplanned that's because it is.

Okay as I am finding it impossible to concentrate on anything non marathon related below is what I ate yesterday - today will be similar except I'll just have beetroot salad baguette and will swap out the pumpkin seeds and nuts for a nakd bar or similar and add in a banana in the afternoon.

Breakfast - porridge with black molasses, soft dates and a banana.

Mid morning - pumpkin seeds and brazil nuts

Lunch - Baked potato, tuna and salad

Ham, egg mayo and beetroot brown baguette

Tea - steak stir fry (did drop the amount of steak as at this point I realised I was eating too much), with white rice noodles and 60g of pasta added.

Post tea snack 1 - packet of oat cakes.

Post tea snack 2 - tuna salad brown baguette (but I chucked out half the tuna mixture)

The odd bit of dark chocolate.

I've also had an SIS Hydration tablet in a pint of water the last two days to aid my hydration but I'm not sure they really agree with me which is a shame as they were my emergency strategy around 20 miles if I wasn't feeling too good.

EDIT: I have no idea if its enough carbs but the extra pasta with tea took some eating. I think sweet stuff might be easier.

*bounces in*  

I'm getting all excited.  My legs are coming back to life and I feel like lit, only slower.


My whole body feels a bit underused and I feel a bit sick which is a combo of carb loading yesterday but forgetting not to eat the other stuff too so I basically just stuffed my face for the day, but also the nerves have really kicked in but I'm not exercising to clear my body of them - I am going to be one pent up runner come Sunday morning.
