Fueling during long runs:
Some of these runs (especially next week) may take you more than 1.5 hours to run. Be sure you bring calories of some kind – granola bar, Gatorade, GU, chomps, etc. to keep your workout going strong. It’s also good practice to use what you’ll have during the race when training. I recommend if your workout will take you over 2 hours, have between 50-100 calories every 30 minutes, starting after about the first 30-45 minutes of the workout.
We will provide Gatorade and water on the Saturday and Sunday runs. You may want water/Gatorade more often, so you may want to bring your own water bottle, too.
