"Thanks Megan for the mix idea! I love, love, love my liquid shot but for my stand alone marathon I would love a more liquid form - I'm going to try the mix of EFS and LS on my long run Sunday! I also ordered the nathan flask today!…"
"Glenn- I use the Nathan Perfomance Gear Sprint handheld and fill ~1/2 full with EFS Liquid Shot. Then I fill the rest with concentrated EFS (1 scoop water in ~4oz of water). The orange EFS powder and liquid shot make it taste like a creamsicle. Then…"
"Thanks for the suggestions. I have an 18 miler this week and will give it a try. You are at All3? I get all my tri gear from there. Just ordered some new Newt's. I actually live in Athens.
"No way man, I live in Atlanta too!
Ok so given that you're 135 pounds and will be running an 8:12 pace you'll need to be replacing roughly 188 calories an hour. Which would work out nicely to about 1/2 an LS flask an hour. I'm not…"
"Andrew, Thanks for your reply. I 5'6", 135. I live in Atlanta, Ga. The marathon is in Miami at the end of Jan. Avg. temp there will be 80. I am a heavy sweater. I am 49. I am trying to BQ. My time would need to be 3:35 since I will be 50…"
"I ran a marathon in April with a single Amphipod flask with (almost) 2 liquid shot bottles. Plenty of calories for 3 hours of running. I took a swig before every aid station, where I washed it down with water.
Worked pretty well, I'd say.…"
"If it's a cooler race or you're not a heavy sweater I'd think you could get by with just 2 flask and water from the course. However if you're over 4 hours it'll be a bit more tricky... You could carry a 4-bottle fuel belt…"
We had an athlete on our Team run a 2:34 at Boston this year, relying only on Liquid Shot & water. The original plan was to use (1) flask for the whole race, but he brought (2) w/ him in the event he finished the 1st. It went down VERY…"
"How is the training going? Is everybody finalizing their nutrition plan? Let's compare what we are finding is working in the heat. I have been taking in 1 bottle of EFS drink per hour - Tangerine - and a hit of Liquid shot every 20 min., chased…"
"I have been considering purchasing a powertap for this race. I have never used a power meter and have mixed feelings about it - in addition to the cost. I have heard how hilly the IMKY course is and for the IM distance I am told a power meter can…"
"I finished my second 1/2 distance race this weekend. This was a big part of my IMKY training. I wanted to test my hydration/nutrition plan and get an idea how my training is going. I put together a race plan that included FE products and a regimen I…"
"This will be my first IM as well. I have heard the bike is tough and I am planning on preparing for the heat. I am waiting for some hot weather. I t has still beeen cool hear in Ga. Very unsual for this time of year. I am doing a 1/2 iron this…"
