Just wondering cuz I want to make sure I have enough time to have fun while running without having to worry about being swept.
TIA!!
I am with you!! I did my first 10K this past Sunday, and submitted my time by email. I got a response literally within minutes showing the new finishing time this qualified me for. I, too, am curious whether there's a way to get a general idea of which corral a given time places you in... there was no such info in the email I got back - I just figured they wouldn't know for sure yet so wouldn't say...

Before all is said and done, they should be at 45 each by the race. Weekend long runs I do in distance.

What helps me wrap my head around a training plan's distance is viewing it in terms of incremental increases of around 10% per week (or every other week if one does cut-back weeks). That's total mileage over a week, so maybe your short runs get a little longer or maybe not, but your total mileage shouldn't go up more than about 10% from one week to the next.
Very helpful to hear your experience - thank you!! Maybe I'm worrying for nothing after seeing that most plans out there go by miles and not minutes.

Anyone else use minutes vs. miles for short runs in their training?

Do you think they would accept this as proof or would I need something more concrete that had my name on it?

They didn't list the pace times on which corral placements were made last year, so we're all kind of in the dark on that. FWIW, my friend submitted proof of a 2:25:00 half and was placed in A; I submitted no proof and entered an expected finish of whatever the minimum was we could submit without proof and was placed in C. Note, too, that they only had 4 big corrals last year - I wouldn't be surprised to see more corrals with fewer people in each this year.

I'm pretty sure it needs to show your name, otherwise how would they know that time belongs to you, right? Is there anything that would cross-reference, like a list of team members' names?

Has anyone tried the Gatorade Energy Chews? I saw an ad for them on Twitter and was interested to see how effective they were. There was only 1 review on Amazon, but it was 5 stars so I'm intrigued! Thought I'd see if any of ya'll had experience with them!

I have used the Gatorade Energy chews. I liked them UNTIL I started trying the GU Chomps. Now those are my go to chews. I still use the Gatorade chews as a last minute chew before the start. But I have really liked the Chomps a lot more.

I love the Cran apple Chomps... It's all I will buy for myself. I use Gu on race day because it stores easier on the belt but its always chomps prior to and on my long training runs!

I've tried those when I ran out of my usually gummies, and just had to grab what the grocery store had. They have the same consistency and size of the Clif Shot Blocks, so if you've tried those, they are similar. I usually eat either the gu chomps or my new obsession, the honey stinger gummie chews. I like the honey stinger ones the best because they are smaller and not quite so dense, plus there are some great flavors. I usually eat a pack of gummies before my long runs, and then during my run, I switch to energy gels, either Clif or Gu. They're just easier to store and eat on the run.

Yay, we're back to electrolyte replacement/energy things again! Just about my fave running-related subject. Alas I have no knowledge or experience with the Gatorade product. I'm a ShotBlok margarita (3x sodium!) kinda person. And SportsBeans. I have no idea how I'm going to carry all of the things I'll need, LOL.

Thanks for the input everyone! I think I'll try the gatorade ones, clif blocks and honey stingers and see what works best for me. I have a weird food texture phobia thing...I can't handle anything too mushy or soft, like jello, pudding, marshmallows, whipped cream, etc. I don't even like gummy bears or worms that much. So I'm trying to stick to the blocks and chews because I KNOW the gels would freak me out!

Would love some input on this -- I struggle with how many of these things to chew for different length runs.

Any tips from anyone would be AWESOME!!

We're all an experiment of one, as Charles likes to say, so what works for other may or may not work for you. That said, you typically need one gel (or 3 bloks or one pack of beans) every hour or so during a marathon, depending on how hard you're working. You'll need to take something more often if you're running to bust out a PR than if you're just running for the fun of it. As the race distance gets shorter, you need less supplemental energy, but again, this also depends on the level of effort you're putting forth. For me, I tend to do the following:

Marathon for PR: 1 gel 10 minutes before the start, 1 gel every 30 minutes during the race
Marathon for fun: 1 gel 10 minutes before the start, 1 gel every hour
Half for PR: 1 gel 10 min before the start, 1 gel every 45 min
Half for fun: 1 gel 10 min before start, 1 gel at 60-75 minutes
Shorter distance: 1 gel 10 min before start, rarely during the race

That's been my experience over the past year and a half. I think I started with the basic concept of 100 cals per hour and started experimenting as my long runs got longer, noting in my run data what worked and what didn't. At this point, I've got a pretty good handle on what my body's needs are. I'll share, but it really is different for everyone...

Pre-run: eat a good meal 45 mins- 1hour pre-run.
30 mins: 3-4 Honey Stinger chews
60 mins: 1/4 Clif bar
90 mins: 3-4 chews
120 mins: 1/4 Clif bar
150: mins: 3-4 chews
180 mins: 1/4 Clif bar

I tried doing just the chews, but I'm hypoglycemic to start and running makes it much worse; my body was overproducing insulin and dropping my blood sugar too much. The Clif bars are more complex carbs with some protein, which keeps my blood sugar/insulin levels more stable.

I have found that sports beans never want to come out of the original package whilst running. And I agree that chomps take too long to chew. I will do a chocolate gu before the race (can't find any other flavors I like yet. I have a peanut butter to try). I might have to try a honey stinger on my next long run and see how they are.

Do you wear a belt to carry all the fuel? I was thinking about getting a sparkle skirt to take advantage of all the pockets.

How did you find out what corral placement you were?

I don't remember being told and just assumed that when I had no proof but entered the minimum time finish that I would automatically be in the last corral.
