Morning before: 1-2 slices toast, water + gatorade before race, absolutely no fiber, dairy, or coffee
When you're on your deathbed, you won't be wishing that you'd spent more time at the office. But you will be wishing that you'd spent more time running. Because if you had, you wouldn't be on your deathbed.
Person of Interest
Okay, don't laugh at me, but my pre-race meal 1-2 days before a race is Liver.
Last year, just before a race, I had Liver and I shattered my PR in the 5 mile 43: something down to 38:21
So we kidded about it and for my next race, my wife again made liver for me and I shattered my 5K PR from 24:06 down to 21:48 (same course).
So every race since them she makes me liver and my performances have been fantastic.
Had it last Sunday and went out and did a 5M on Memorial Day and shattered my previous time on this very difficult course (45:+ to 38:18) and set a new 5M PR
So maybe it's just that I'm getting a lot better, but this works for me and I'm sticking to it.
