North Coast 24 Hour Plan

31 days till the NC24! Following my intention of writing things down here’s my plan for the North Coast 24 on September 17th 2016. I’ve been dealing with her injury in my abductor for more than a year. This has curtailed my training, diet and my mindset therefore I’m not adequately prepared to compete in this race; so I’m going to use this race as an experiment. Hear the things I hope the test:

  • Running a 24-hour Race by MAF heart rate, not exceeding 138bmp.
  •  Supplementing with exogenous ketones
  • Supplementing with Vespa
  •  Supplementing with BCAA
  • Supplementing with MCT

My goals in order:

  1. Do no harm. As this is only a test I will drop at the first sign of harm.
  2. Have fun.
  3. My A goal is to get 100 miles with heart rate under 138, depending on how I feel I may drop or walk after 100.
  4. Try for 141 a 10:12 pace still with heart rate under 138, this is really unlikely especially if it gets warm. This will put me in the current number 6 position for the US 24 Hour Team.

Mostly for humor here is my packing list so far. Should be a whirlwind trip flight arrives in Cleveland at 8:30 friday, returning home on Sunday early evening.
