Here are the split times for my interval workout with Beer Boy today. The goal was to do 6-8 intervals at a 1:45 pace for 400 meters, then a recovery 400m at 2:15 pace. We were consistently, inconsistent! Sheesh! However… it was a good workout session. Tomorrow will be an easy run, but we are forecasted to get rain, so things maybe be shortened. I have printed out a 14 mile route around Farragut for my run on Saturday morning. I am guessing that I will have to get up pretty earlier to get it done by early morning. Mark on my to-do list to pick up some gels. I think that I will have to settle with the Power Gels from Kroger, but would like to have CARB-Boom! And there is no mention on the gels that will be provided at the Knoxville Marathon. I do know that Gatorade will be th drink provided (besides water) but it will not be the Endurance Formula. The Endurance Formula is actually more for athletes than the sweeter mass marketed regular formula. The Endurance formula has more sodium which is essential for athletes. Our Kroger has had Gatorade Endurance Formula on close-out for 98cents for a 32oz bottle. I look funny walking up with 10 Gatorades and 4 Cadbury eggs! It's a true story… I have no pictures to prove it… you just have to trust me!
