Caffeine is quite heavily used in the tri world - I always do a full week of depletion and then 4 pro plus tabs and tea 2 hrs before the race then another 1 just before he start. In an IM I'd take another in t2 and then have coke in the second half of the run. It definitely helps me.

I'm off the caffeine too. As a chain drinker of tea it takes about a week to wean myself off it and then I've had all week caffeine free. Feel better for it too. But will still be hammering it down my neck come Monday. Caffeine tablets on race morning for me too. Great stuff.

PMT? Is that pre marathon tension MsE? It suddenly all makes sense.

I think the bloated / stuffed feeling comes from eating too much. I've felt better eating the same volume as usual but just changing the component parts - eg, nutri grain bars instead of Yorkies...

As for beet it shots, they are revolting, but I foolishly pb'd at HM by 9mins once after forcing them down my neck despite the retching so now feel compelled to use them every time. I have now perfected the technique of holding nose and rinsing mouth out afterwards and then drinking something else before releasing nose. Can't taste a thing!

My one mile round trip run to the chippy felt sluggish too. Feel better now though, yum.

Well if it's good enough for a senator BB, it's definitely good enough for a toe-rag like me.

Can't really put euro death metal on in my office KR - it's only my first week! But I'm sure it's lovely.....

Not Aussie style here MsE.
I plan on keeping my higher fat (45%) lower carbs (40%) normal approach until tomorrow morning then flipping to 70% carbs but not really increasing calorific intake too much

"Balls to the wall"!!! Not sure of the origin of this phrase and circumstances that it might have come about but I'll endeavour to use this phrase in the future.
If I had a national vest I'd wear it all the time. All the time. Do it BB.

KR - I'll be number 11625

I bloody hope so Minni!

Great news Fraser! After an 18/70 you must be gunning for 2:5x...? Definitely see you on the start line, maybe at the finish, not in the middle.
