do you run marathons without drinking? (Read 1168 times)

    So is this thread about alcohol or not?

      So is this thread about alcohol or not?

       

      Maybe I will try that when I run my first marathon. Screw this water stuff, I'm just gonna stash some brews at a few points. I'm combining carbs with hydration right?

      They say golf is like life, but don't believe them. Golf is more complicated than that. "If I am still standing at the end of the race, hit me with a Board and knock me down, because that means I didn't run hard enough" If a lot of people gripped a knife and fork the way they do a golf club, they'd starve to death. "Don't fear moving slowly forward...fear standing still."

        parameter Good Bad
        temperature 37-50 85-90
        sweat rate slim/none profuse
        drink rate couple gulps every 4-6 miles 8-20 oz/mile
        nutrition Honey every 6-7 miles Honey/carb every 4-5 miles

         

        So do you refuse to run marathons between 51 and 84 degrees?

          You do not want carbonation - Vodka is the only way to go - You can mix the vodka with something sweet and it will be perfect race fuel.  Or just drink 600ml pre-race and you should be fine.

            I don't drink anything in those 5k marathons- no time.

            PBs since age 60:  5k- 24:36, 10k - 47:17. Half Marathon- 1:42:41.

                                                10 miles (unofficial) 1:16:44.

              I'm a novice with a limited data set. I will soon refuse competeing in anyrace over 50.

              Give a man a fire and he'll be warm the rest of the night;
              Set a man afire and he'll be warm the rest of his life.

              What in the Jehu?

                Four beers in six minutes gets a bit bulky and burpy.  Perhaps spread over more than a mile it would not be so bad.

                  Don't trust anyone over 50.

                  Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                    I thought it was 30.

                     

                    It will be a cold day in hell when I don't trust any race over 30.

                     

                    Ok.  Time to work.

                          I could imagine...though I have yet to try this one yet. Never really figured out the logistics to arrange one.

                            Maybe if it's enough the race wouldn't even hurt...
