So the race has come and gone and I swear I will write a race report of some kind. Anyway, I spent the last couple of weeks prior to the race not trying to be at a calorie deficit so that my body could recharge and heal. Since the race I have been focusing again on eating right and flushing all the toxic junk from my system that is a by product of running 100 miles. Part of that is the 6,000+ calories I ate during the race which was nearly all carbs. The other part is what remains in your muscles after that much physical activity.
All I know is after going all out for 100 miles I feel amazing compared to my other races. I have learned a lot over the last couple of years and it is gratifying to finally be putting it all together.
