from Hilary... *****Marathon Fuel Tracking - NYC Expo*****
Nov. 3, 2013 - New York City Marathon
No, I did not do the NYC Marathon, although I was there to soak up the atmosphere and it was truely inspiring. Trent and I were there in conjunction with a PowerBar sports nutrition conference where we both had the opportunity to participate in presentations and Q&A panels. Trent also spoke at the expo so for those of you who requested it, the fuel tracking form he showed is linked above. This is to help people come up with a hydration and fueling plan leading into a marathon by tracking sweat rates and fluid and carbohydrate tolerance/intake.
Although I really did enjoy my half marathon experience in Victoria a few weeks ago, I'm happy to transition back to mid-distance-focused training. I'm still doing base training, which includes easy mileage, tempos, and fartleks, I have started training back in the weight room and as a result haven't been able to lift my arms above my head for a week. At least I know I'm getting training effect! I've also added short 15" power hills before one tempo a week to build power and speed, as well as doing a few speed intervals or diagonals after my fartlek.
I'll continue this type of training through the rest of the fall and just focus on training without any competitions so I can get a good block in.
