I can't wait!

I am almost ready to go. Yes....I will be eating all that stuff in the picture (at least everything that's edible). I don't have my 2 bananas and my 2 red bulls yet but they will be in there too. I do have 5 extra gels just in case I am out there longer than I plan. My fuel plan called for 2453 calories from carbs to finish in 11:15 so there they are! When you lay it all out like that is really looks quite disturbing but once I get it all parsed out appropriately it won't be so hard to believe :). Micheal and I were just talking about how much we spend each year in gels and by the looks of things for just one race I think the answer is.......way to much!

I had a great track workout today which is always a good sign of things to come so I am optimistic I won't have a repeat of last years performance. My legs felt just fine after last weekends festivities and I was surprised given the amount of down hill pummelling my quads endured. Tomorrow is a nice recovery run with Susan in Forest Park, Friday is 30 minutes with some pick ups and then race day. I am really looking forward to the trip with the ultra family to sunny California!

Wee wee wee Miwok! When I went to Headlands 50K last year I said "look, it's a mini Miwok!" Try saying THAT three times fast. :)

Have fun, rooster!! Looks like you'll be well fueled and ready to go.

I can't say it 3 times fast...your right it's hard :).

I know I will have a blast and most definately will be well fueled....for some reason that never seems to be a problem :).

Have a great weekend.

I was scared when I spread my supply before ZG too:)
Run fast, and NEVER look back, Ronda!

Rooster said...

Olga I read your post about "never look back" and I think that's some good advice and I am going to take it!

Hi Ronda!
Good luck at Miwok this weekend! I sat and watched Micheal pull all of his fuel and gear together last night so your pile looks very familiar! I hope the weather is perfect and that you, Stacey, Steve and Micheal all have a great day!
Safe Travels...

Never hurts to have too much. I was one short at my last race :-)

Run hard and have fun!

Good luck at Miwok! I enjoy your blog and have been getting some good training tips. Thanks!

How did you figure out how many calories you needed to take in for MiWok? I really need help with my nutrition on long runs as I tend to get nauseous really easy and have a hard time eating solid food.
