|Ice Age Trail - Madison, WI -looks so friendly, doesn't it?|
Another goal that I set was to learn how to fuel well. Um, yeah - I think I learned this lesson very well. You would think with the big miles I have been running that I would have lost weight. Not so in my case. I eat so much now and all the time. But here is the thing with that- I want to make sure that my muscles are well fed, so I think sometimes I go overboard. Oh well! So, I have figured out what works for me - Nuun throughout the race, no gels, real food sits best - Granola Thins, pb sandwiches, and Honey Stinger waffles are my tried and trues. AND the food at aid stations is soooooo good- I can't wait for the gummy bears, Pringles, and flat Mt Dew!!!
**This past week my mileage was 35. What a wonderful scale back week and just in time! My muscles and other soft tissues are getting a little crabby. My long run is tomorrow= 10 miles as a pacer for the MN Pacers Team. I LOVE pacing! Always meet so many really cool people!
**No luck wished for the Boston-bound - because luck doesn't play any part in YOUR performance! You have worked hard and trained well for this race. No luck, all skill and talent, baby!!
