Have you tried electrolyte drinks and/or salt?
No, I try to just drink water before/after. I’ll try that next time though, thanks.
What shoes are all you avid runners wearing? Currently in a pair of Brooks but haven’t fallen in love. Haven’t bought the same brand in a while.
Currently, my trainers are Saucony Kinvaras and freedoms. Nike 4% for races. I try new models frequently though.
Nike Pegasus 35 - most runs.
Nike Pegasus 35 Turbos - slow recovery
Adidas Boston 6 - Tempos, speed
Nike 4% - Long races
Nike Zoom Streak 7 - 5k, 10k
And most importantly, spend 40 to 50 bucks on Hoka One One recovery slides, heaven!
Didn't know CF had a marathon thread! Awesome... For shoes I've found the gel kayano's to be my bread and butter. However, I got a pair of 4% for racing and dayum they are awesome.
Ran a PB half marathon last week and currently training for Twin Cities Marathon in October. I haven't read the whole thread but is anyone else running it? It was my first marathon back in 2014 and really enjoyed the course except I didn't realize how hard summit avenue is...
Any run over 6 miles and my nipples are bloody and extremely painful. At the Chicago Marathon expo the day before (in 2013) there was a booth that was selling these. I haven't had a problem since. These are worth their weight in gold.
Saucony Ride Iso for my feet, they are good but not great.
Band-aid clear spots work well, are more readily available and cost less. Been using them for many years.
And I thought I had a shoe 'problem'
How'd it go? I hope it wasn't anywhere in the midwest
So ran a 20k last night in 1:56 and is my 2nd 20k in 3 weeks to get ready for Dam to DSM on June 1st. So what should I do for runs now until the race? Was thinking maybe 6 miles sometime this weekend and call it good till race day.
Possibly something with a simple sugar can help, says someone a month too late.
I want to know how that calculates out for a 16:05 5k and 85 miles per week the 10 weeks prior.
Try salt tablets or drinking pickle juice.
You don't want to stop running completely the last week. Do some light runs throughout and a shakeout the day before.
Try some Nuun electrolyte tablets in your drink. I know for me, that can help, especially as you sweat more. Have banana too, get some potassium. It seems like many different sports drinks don't have much potassium in it, but I found that it helped with issues around cramping and headaches.
Interesting to see that you've got an Adidas among all those Nike's.
First marathon this weekend. For my training runs anything over 14 miles i would take a GU packet halfway through and my stomach felt fine.
Thinking of taking GU at mile 7 14 and 21. Thoughts?
