Well I wanted to do 60km, but it just poured with rain the whole day and was pretty cold by the afternoon. So I called it a day at 50.03km and 6hr13. Ran through some forest and some very isolated roads, was pretty serene and thoroughly enjoyed it (despite my hands going nearly numb)
Honestly, I wish I could do something like that, I ran 6 miles with plenty of walking.. Last year with a friend and I my legs were totally beat up for 3 days lol!
What's your nutrition like for the running mate?
That's still good mate !! A lot of people wouldn't be able to run/walk 10km.
Nutrition, generally just eating more regularly and making sure I eat good quality calories and enough of them. For my 50km run my food looked like:Night before:
Meal from one of my local Chinese vegetarian restaurants ~ 1 x pickled free range egg (sorry guys lol), bok choi, potato, coconut rice, tofu square and soy 'sesame chicken', large scoop of chili sauce (see photo below)2hrs before run:
Grilled focacia bread, field mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, spinachDuring first 34km:
2 x GU gels, 1,200ml electrolyte drink (it was a cold wet day), hot chocolate from a garage at the 28km mark lolFinal 16km:
1 x small bowl pilau rice + 1 x avocado, 1 x banana, 2 x nashi pears from the fridge... BLISS
