Food Glorious Food
You would all be happy to know my lovely wife is including me in meal times again so all offers of food baskets, although appreciated, are now no longer needed. While on the subject I'd like to know if you have any carbo loading secrets you would like to share?
I heard of one way that I tried before a training run but never in a race. It worked well! I ate basically no carbs for two days and the day before my run I loaded up only eating high carb food for breaky, lunch and tea. I felt switched on for that run and flew through 18K with the type of energy I rarely feel. So I'm going to try this again for Tokyo and hope it can make up for the gaps in my training.
