Hey y'all-not sure if anyone is tracking my fat adaptation running or not. I had my 1st relay this season last weekend and we did not come in last!!!
It took my women's team 30 hours. I had 25 miles (with added leg for injured runner). I ran every few hours. I brought a fruit bowl, fresh ground almond butter, cut up veggies (really hard to eat in the middle of this), I had a nice lunch with boiled eggs and asparagus cooked in CO after the 1st leg. After the 2nd leg we stopped at a diner and I had a hamburger, peaches and a steamed veggie medley. I was never really hungry but ate steadily. I did drink one Propel-not the best but it was okay. And lots of coffee with cream when I could get it.
I ran pretty well and ran 9 min miles across all legs and the last leg which was only 5 miles I ran in 38 min--better than I have run all fall and it was at the end. I was trying to go nice and easy to keep my energy up with no sleep. I was the team captain so I had no rest.
There was a mostly mens crossfit team from florida which provided nice 20 year old eye candy for some of the race but they were so much faster than us it didn't last long enough. I crossfit a lot but I do not look like that.
Okay, so next half is Saturday. But I am dressing up like Wonder Woman so the costume might hold back my time. But I am going to go for it an see what happens. No race food at all. I IF everyday with a bp coffee in the morning-so that is all I am going to have. I will just eat normally today and friday and see how it goes.
