I’m trying out a new blog look. I’m also going to try posting my workouts that occur since my last post.

So here is what I’ve been up to:
Friday (12/17): 5 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 2% Incline, 41:38, 8:20 Pace)
Saturday (12/18): 8 Miles Tempo (Treadmill, 2% Incline, 57:53, 7:15 Pace)
Sunday (12/19): 17 Miles Long (Treadmill, 1% Incnline, 2:19:11, 8:12 Pace)
Monday (12/20): 6 Miles Recovery (Treadmill, 2% Incline, 50:00, 8:20 Pace)

For Sunday’s long run I tried out some new fuel.

And all I have to say is YUM!!! I took this at Mile 10 and it tastes like the insides of an apple pie. I have another flavor to try, but I think this one may be my new favorite. It’s too soon to tell if my tummy will tolerate CarbBoom!, so I will keep trying it out in long runs.

  1. Okay, that is really weird. I used the Carb Boom chews when I was training for my first half at the beginning of the year and loved them. I was looking for them just a couple months ago when I was getting ready for my last race and was told that they had gone out of business. Must investigate…


    1. I hope that is not the case. We picked ours up at the running store (Often Running) but I will check with the owner to see if that’s true before I get hooked on them. They just came out with new flavors so I hope that a sign that they are still in business.


  2. the apple-cinnamon carbboom is probably the best tasting gel flavor ever. unfortunately it doesn’t have as many electrolytes as other brands so i find i cant really use it…


    1. I will keep that in mind and see if I come across the same issue. I found on their website the following information about the amoun of electrolytes: 50mg of sodium and 50mg of potassium
      I have been taking electrolytes in pill form (I think they are Hammer brand) before marathons and will see if the CarbBoom feels like enough.
      Thanks for the heads up on your experience with them!
