It's almost here.. Sunday.. the big day.. the big race. And I've been pretty much going stir crazy with the taper. My knee is still feeling a little 'off'. I'm sure it's ok. I hope it's ok.
But I've gone from giddy excitement to fear of not reaching my goal within minutes of each other this week. :)
I've heard myself say "What was I thinking?" to "Girl, you've totally got this." so many times that I've lost count. ha.
But today I was curious about carbo loading. When should I start? Is now too early? And I came across this Article from Runner's World Fill Er' Up.
It seems that the best time to start carbo loading is 2-3 days out from the race. I knew not to just 'load up' the night before. But I wasn't exactly sure when to start or how much. According to the article you need 4 grams of carbs per pound of body weight. Wow, that was more than I thought. So I'm glad I came across this article. Looks like it's about time to start upping the carbs.
