Thread: Feedstops - preferred choices..

  1. #21


    I find that eating sugary stuff on top of gels is just too much small portions of the following really work for me depending where I am running.

    Why not rice and beans? Or a potato and salted pork broth? Flat bread with salt and oil? Mixed nuts?

    I did the Tour du Mt Blanc 2 years ago and was warned that each food stop would have lots of different sorts of food. At firstI felt really spoilt for choice, and tried to grab a bit of everything, but after a couple of stops I started to avoid anything dry, and found that in the night sections I would choose a cup of minestrone soup and a slice of bread to dunk in it - soggy bread slips down a treat without chewing (I get a really dry mouth on ultras), and the soup was warm and salty, with a bit pasta.

    Later in the race I'd also developed a craving for sweet black coffee and also coke (which I don't usually drink) - must be sugar and caffeine. Coke is better flat or slightly flat, and it can get shaken up insidewhen running - with unpleasant consequences.

    Early in the race and before mymouth dries out, I'd like a marmite sandwich.

    Thanks

    I haven't done any really long stop runs such as this, having done the MDS this year, but I suppose something hot and dunkable, such as soup would certainly be great during the night stages, when it's likely to be colder

    On other stages, stuff that worked really well for us included flagjacks, biltong/other dried meat, Ritz biscuits, nuts and dried fruit. All light, high energy and keep well in a bag

    Cheers

    marc, you mentioned that HEED will be supplied at the checkpoints, do you know what concentration this will be, and will it be in bottles or a bin where we refill our own bottles?

    We have large containers for drinks (collapsable ones you get at outdoor shops) and we intend to make it up to the instructions on the packet.. not sure what the %concentration is for HEED but i'm sure it will be the right one if we follow the instructions on't tin. You could always add a bit of water to thin it down if it was too strong.

    Regards

    09I think it considers LA Escort American piopulation LA Escorts only (Except Asian counries of course) as LA Asian Escort most young girls in America are crazy about their chastity.
    I know one girl who was dating LA Asian Escorts with her boyfriend about 5 years but they did not have sex and she is still virgin.

    10Same problem. I have Edmonton Escort Reference Version Edmonton Escorts 14 and an Asus G73Jh quad Edmonton Asian Escort core w lots of memory. Very fast on encoding to FLAC. All 8 cores used. Desperately slow going Edmonton Asian Escorts from FLAC to audio (not data) CD. Nero does it in 2 minutes or less.
