In that case you did your 1/2 in under 2 hours!!! Awesome, and if I recall that was your goal. No wonder you cramped - your legs were saying "hey wait a minute! You said 13.1, not 13.6!!!"

I'm looking at running another half at the end of the month and then a 20 mile race mid Nov.
I'm gearing up for the full 26 mile race on Dec. 2nd
Thats good stuff mate! Nice to have things to work towards. I've got training tomorrow morning and friday morning. Slight twang in my knee this morning so will see how thats feeling later on.

Need to start some speed work next week, so think tomorrow I'll have a nice steady hour run to protect the knee, then Friday will be hill sprints or interval training depening on the weather. Just need to buy some lights for my bike now as these dark evenings mean no more biking at night

Hi All-
I'm keeping an eye on this thread for a few reasons:
- Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years
- I want to use fitday everyday
- I get really hungry with lots of running, what/how much should I eat?
- I wanna get back to my PR running times from last year (I was skinny!!)

SW07 Nice half! You hit the 2:00hr mark!

sw07- good luck on your next 13.1! have you done a 26.2?

I've been strict in my eating since Sunday... I ran 4 this morning and bonked. I need to figure the minimum carb needed to fuel my typical 7miler.

I have a 26.2 on 12/2 and a 20 miler on 11/11.
I was also having some trouble with my carb intake. For the longest time I trained myself to eat low carb and high protien, but now I have to switch gears and carb up. I had a couple of plates of whole wheat pasta earlier in the week and have been trying to incorporate more whole grains (Wheat bread sandwhiches for lunch) and oatmeal for breakfast or a veggie omelette stuffed into whole wheat pita bread. I'll also snack on Cliff bar between meals.

This diet change seems to help and I've also noticed a decrease in ammonia smelling sweat after my long runs- ya, I know, gross, but it's an indicator of not enough carbs and protein is being used for fuel.

sw07- good tip re: carb loading... I've been trying to manage carbs daily, but a good dose of carbs seems to last 3-4 days.

Went for a short run afterwork yesterday (6.85 miles) and felt great-no fatigue and had plenty of energy. I even went to the gym afterwards for some more leg work.

Ran my longest run today, 14.43 miles in 2:34. Had perfect weather, overcast and the temps were about 58-60*. After the run, went to the 2013 auto show and walked around for about 4hrs -definitely and early night tonight.
