Mid race energy

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any recommendations for mid-race eating? Typically I have those energy block gummy things that I take around miles 4 and 10. Those are clearly out of the question for right now. I'm only running a 10k this weekend so I should be fine but I'd like to have a back up just incase my energy completly dies off around mile 4.

Very little of anything you take at Mile 4 would get absorbed into your muscles before the very end of the race. If you feel like you will need an energy boost, try bringing a baggie with a few raisins to take in about 15 minutes before the start, or shortly after you finish warming up.

I just go with pitted Deglet Noor dates during longer races (half marathon+).  I don't usually eat anything during training runs and I keep my carbs somewhat lower, so I don't feel like I need the dates during the races.  They are just there to give me a boost so I'm runnig with topped off glycogen. 

 

Like others said, you should be fine for 10k.  Best wishes!
