Dates (the fruit!) during long run and marathon- how many? (Read 66 times)


    just started eating during long runs

    have ate Dates (the fruit!) during long run twice now

    ran 18 miles slowly eating 2 before and then 2 at 5, 10, 15 miles

    how many are suggested to eat during long run and for marathon?

    thanks in advance


      Well, this question didn't date well...

      50+ age-group PBs:  Half Perish 1:28:11 (Sept '22 Off-Road Half) - 10km 37:52 (2022 Local Road Champs); - Track 5km 18:49 (Aug '22); Track Mile 5:32 (2021) - Perish Run 3:17:42

      2023 Goals: Perish Run Sub 3:15 - Half Perish Sub 1:25 - Road/Track 10km Sub 37:30 - 5km Sub 18:20




        har har har, looks like dates have a pretty good nutrition profile when compared to gu, I intend to try this when I get my long runs long in a few weeks. If you salt them, that would probably take care of all electrolyte needs
