Thanks for the explanation about the virtual 5K. Next time I'll plan to scull 7 K!

The virtual 5k race is/was a spark challenge for everybody interested to run/walk/bike on April 1st 2007 on a local course of their choosing. It's not a real race because everyone is doing different things on different courses. It was just a challenge or goal to attempt since the real race season is still very young or not started in some places.

I didn't plan what I ate pre and post race but I did keep track. I should have planned because my percentages of carbs / protein / fat are really whacked in favor of the carbs. So much so that it may throw me off for the entire day. Here is what I had:

pre-race breakfast
Breakfast rice with raisins and apples. (Its a recipe I'm working on)
1 cup Vanilla flavored Soy milk
1 large banana

post-race
1 medium pear
16oz of Propel Fitness water.
1 serving of dried apricots (about 6 pieces)

This gave me about 700 calories with 175 carbs, 15 protein, 6 fat. According to the nutrition report that's 85.9% from carbs, 7.2% from protein and 6.9% from fat. I've consumed over half of my calorie allotment for today as well. I guess race day isn't a diet day. I'll just have to try and not blow it too badly.

I'm not sure these carbs were used during the race but they should help me recover today for strength training this evening and the normal routine tomorrow.


Challenge: 500 miles between April 18 and Dec. 31.
434 miles complete thru 8/31 [66 miles remain].

I don't know if anyone else took part in the virtual 5K race on SP today, but I did as practice for a race I've signed up for at the end of April and it got me thinking about race day food. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on good pre-race and post-race foods. Thanks :)
