After my DNF GNW last weekend I enjoyed a more relaxing recovery week and covered less then half of my usual 100 km this week.
This gave me time to sort out the nutrition side for the Marathon des Sables. Sadly the organiser no longer accept the energy drink powder as part of the daily allowance of 2000 cal. This meant a complete reshuffle of my food list to still make sure I had enough each day….also meant that I probably end up with some more weight now.
Started running with up to 5 kg in my backpack and happy to be able to keep up my usual pace for my longer runs.
Looking forward to my next race – Otford to Bundeena on 1st December – where I can test a full load under running conditions.
