Feeling good, consistently cross-training on my bike on off-days. I'm going to try a marathon (26.2 miles, 42 km) on Saturday morning. It will be the first time I've run that far in this training cycle, so it will be a good test of where I am and how far I have to go to be ready for 50. The race is 8 weeks from Saturday.

Good luck!

It would also suck to run out of ATP during the middle of the run so make sure you calculate the caloric intake beforehand! (You can probably Carb-load in a 24-hour period with 100g carbs per meal per 2-3 hours, including sleep)

I'm no biochemist, but I understand that running out of glycogen around 20-22 miles is pretty standard. I'm carbo-loading today and I'm bringing some combination of food and cash with me on the run so I'll be able to keep from starving as I go, but I'm mentally preparing myself for this to be hard.

 I'm also doing this as a test-run for marathon distances; I can't know how ready my body is for it until I try it.
