Thanks - I will look into the Chomps but not for this marathon. I'm not going to do anything new at this point.

Good luck mike!

I still use Gu, but I've been using some lower carb products lately, too. I really like the Gu Chomps, 8 grams of carbs with 1/2 being simple and 1/2 complex. I find I can better fine-tune my BS with them.

Have a great race Mike! I am trolling along trying to figure out my next race.

It has been very quiet here lately. Happy to hear you're back.
I'm 2 weeks away from my next marathon

Hello everyone!
Sorry I've been away for a bit. Things have been so hectic around here for the past few weeks. Things are settled down a bit for a little while longer and so I am back.
Hope everyone had wonderful holidays filled with joy!
Cheers!

I use regular GU gels 0 25g carb. I tried the new Roctane gels but they seem to work too fast for me. I also usually try not to milk it for every last bit.

Wow, 7 miles+ PR is a great testament to your training! How many carbs are the gels you are having? Most of the ones I've seen are like 20-25. Have you tried splitting up the carbs somehow, maybe switching from gel to jelly beans or something that can be split up more? I find that bigger carbs= bigger swings and I seem to be much more balanced with more servings of smaller carbs? I like the GU too but I think that sometimes they are a bit much foodwise.

Hi all, it's been very quiet here lately.
I set a new half marathon PR last week - 1:45:12 (13 seconds slower than I hoped for. I've been nursing a groin injury and missed many of my long runs so I tagged an extra 7 miles to the race (before).
I had some BS issues during the race which I hope won't repeat themselves next monthe when I ran my next marathon.

Nice race! I haven't "run into" any 15Ks around here but I like the intermediate distance runs a lot. They can be challenging but I sort of feel like I can go run one anytime, if you are used to running shorter distances during the week but push it out to 8-10 miles on the weekend, I felt really healthy and strong.
