Helloooo! Today was a busy day for me. Taking a day off of work is always nice, but then you have twice as many things to do when you get back!
Speaking of the ING New York City Marathon…
The race is only 18 days away now and many runners did their final long run this weekend. If you’re done with the peak of training, you should have figured out how to fuel yourself for optimum performance by now.
I really do credit my fueling for helping me PR in the marathon weekend before last and NOT hit the wall. I think eating earlier, saltier options and more in general really did help me run a sub-four hour marathon – even though I wasn’t training to PR and hadn’t tapered!
When I went to NY to film the videos for the ING Class of 2012 this one was the video I mentioned involved me running behind a pedi-cab in Central Park as people gathered around. Ha!
Check out the other videos and tips from my ING Class of 2012 friends on the ING New York Marathon Facebook page
I’m going to be doing a twitter chat soon to talk about Food and Fueling – stay tuned
Question: Gels, Chews or Bars? Favorite flavor??
I think my new favorite is the margarita flavor chomps!
