For running 50's i think that's way too little food, you can pull it off , you can even run a marathon without any drinking or eating- but its not smart in the end. Off course there are exceptions to every rule but in general the average runner should be eating more. I ran marathons before on only two figes but could be much faster if i drank and ate more.
Before an marathon or ultra you dont have to do really special things the days before- just make sure you get all the fresh fruit and juice/smoothies and greens in your body so the system is full. But i guess youre doing that already. Just do whats natural to you. All these runningmagazines are based on fear telling you need to do this and that- all bull. Well not all but a lot i think. Just enjoy the feeling -and pain- and accept the moment- and put some fuell in your tank on time.

My running shoes are in serious need of replacement but dont really know where to start!! Last ones I bought at a sport shop in London - Asics I.G.S and they were very comfortable, light but did not last long.... really need something that has a bit more wear and tear but is still light and comfortable! PLEASE HELP (-: thanks!

Brian - thank you for your information on food intake - con-grates to you too!

Jon - I am running my 1st marathon in June - since you must have eating down by doing 3 50K (wow) - 

I was wondering - what do  you eat and drink in the days just before your event...and do  you just drink water and eat dates during your run?

Comment by Jon on May 1, 2012 at 7:33am

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
