Long run caffeine prep

The caffeine I took in seemed to make last weeks long run go like a dream, so I’m trying the same strategy this morning ahead of my 20 miler… here’s the route I’m planning:

Then here’s my fuelling:

Breakfast:

Cereal & multivitamins & water

SIS go energy caffeine bar (75mg caffeine) – below

Let that go down then, energy on the run every 4 miles ish:

Double espresso SIS gel (125mg caffeine)

2x Berry SIS gels (2x 75mg caffeine)

Citrus SIS gel (75mg caffeine)

The gels and bar alone are about 110g carbs, and 425mg of caffeine. Or I might just take 3 gels, see how I feel.

All of that should keep me go-ing and feeling good throughout and after my long run hopefully. 😜
