Hey guys, just ran my 3rd 50k.  Finished pretty well, about middle-of-pack, definitely my strongest so far.  Just wanna encourage you all to keep it up, its so worth it!  Ran with my hydration pack additionally stuffed full of dates.  No excuses to eat crap from the aid stations (did have some of the bananas and oranges as well, though)

good to know on the dates for the long runs...I am doing my 1st Marathon this spring...

Finished 50k (31 miles) race last saturday... No Gels, no powders, no Gatorade.

Just a banana date smoothie 1 hour before the race and 3dates (mejools) every hour for 7hours and 17 min..

Felt great

Will be taking it slow, was thinking about warming up with walking then run for 15sec; walk for 45sec for a full 30mins and progress from there. Plus including the exercises Karen suggested. Thanks for the suggestion Karen and David.... :)

@ Annette -

I have strengthened my ankels in the past by doing

1)calf raises - one leg at a time - raise up onto your toes and lower heels down- 15x - each leg - 3 sets

2)standing on one leg and squat down as far as you can - 15x each leg - 3 sets

3)squat down while standing on a 1/2 bosu ball or perhaps even your bed - so it is not a solid surface underfoot...15x two leg squat = 3 sets

Hello to all

Thinking about taking up running to get in shape, I'm a fat thin person now since losing 40lbs. Have been walking from 30mins to an hour a day taking the weekends off. I have weak ankles (found out when I tried to run with my x-husband years ago, could not walk for weeks after with swelling and pain), are there any suggestions to strenghten the ankles.

RE: Snack while running > Water + Dates! It works!

Karen, does the sportline watches track distance as well as time and heart rate? thanks
