Sigh. So once again I am asking myself: “What could I do differently (if anything)?”
- Race somewhere cooler, more humid, at low elevation. It probably won’t make a huge difference, but it can’t hurt.
- Try resting to get my HR down so I can digest what’s in my stomach.
- Try eating less?
- Try running more slowly?
- After 3 or 4 hours I’m generally sick of sugar. Would switching to protein or fat be better? Cliff/Balance bars? Hunks of cheese?
- Accept that I can’t run for more than 9 hours? And give up.
(And that’s important!)
