Prep Day

Tomorrow is the race, and today I have to get everything ready.  I've decided to drive up tonight and sleep in the car.  This way I can sleep in tomorrow, and don't have to get up at 5am for the 3.5 hour drive.  I also soaked my feet in ice water for 20 minutes one last time, fearing the torture they will be subjected to tomorrow.

  • Bananas for breakfast and the night before. I want to load up on potassium to help with the soreness.
  • Yogurt and granola for breakfast
  • Protein powder for breakfast
  • Two sugar free Powerade for after the race
  • Two 20oz jars of green tea for the ride home
  • Trail mix for the ride home
  • Plenty of ibuprofen to reduce swelling and inflammation during the race and after
  • Glucosamine, multivitamin, and fish oil supplements
  • Two gallons of water

Gear for the very cold night
  • Sleeping bag
  • Extra blankets
  • Camping sleeping pads
  • Long underwear
  • Down jacket
  • Fleece gloves
  • Extra change of clothes
  • Toilet Paper
  • Sunblock
  • Bug repellent
  • Plastic bags for my muddy clothes
