Rules were made to be broken. How about ‘Golden’ rules such as never trying anything new on race day?

One of the ‘golden rules’ of distance running and racing is never to try anything new that you haven’t tried in practice.  It’s important to stick with what you know and what works.  When you eat something completely new it may not agree with your ability to digest it while your body is also exerting itself with great effort.  This is where severe consequences can be experienced such as vomiting and diarrhea: not not conducive to running an enjoyable race.

 

However, as they say, rules are made to be broken and also I don’t feel like those rules apply to me, even golden rules.  So tomorrow I am trying everything new.  I made pemmican because I think that will be the perfect fuel source.  I have several different supplements that I will be trying.  All kinds of new stuff.  I don’t feel like blogging about it right now since I want to go drink wine and visit with these incredible people.  Ciao for now! 🙂
