I also don't "count" calories that I take in during long exercise sessions (e.g., gels, Eload) as those are being burned up right away to fuel my activity. But I also don't grossly increase my calorie consumption on days when I have long workouts. Me too, seems to work well. During the week I limit...

I'm in too. Tentatively staying at Best Western in Penticton, but trying to get a timeshare in Kelowna (free!).

Haven't booked a flight yet... going on points, seems a bit early for that kind of thing! Maybe I'm wrong - tell me if I am.

I'm in for the 30k... never done ATB, goal is sub-2:40.

McMillan says 2:44, but I did the first 30k in this year's Toronto marathon in 2:39:36... before it took me to school. :lol:

The Muskoka 70.3 coverage was actually better, lower budget perhaps, but they actually covered what was going on in the race!

Did anyone else notice she had a Camelback during the bike? I can't recall seeing that before among the elites. jono If I'm not mistaken, Zeiger wore the Camelback in Kona 2007 as well. I recall an interview where either her or her coach talked about how she had a tendency to not drink enough when ...

You mean the end of the winning woman's race! :)

And during the 2007 IMC, I saw someone riding a Cervelo P3C, complete with Zipp disc & 808 front wheel combo, aero helmet, and skinsuit, who was behind the 75yr old Sister Madona Buder :roll: :roll: ... but imagine how much further behind he'd have been if he didn't have all the gear! :lol: jono

Too complicated. It's so easy to not eat too much and too eat well. The eating well part is easy enough... but not eating too much can be tricky, calories are hiding everywhere. A handful of something healthy-sounding like mixed nuts and bam, you're 250 calories over. Especially people who are just...

Count calories on-line? I want to be able to record what I eat when I eat it, not when I'm at a computer. I have a simple system: I print off a strip of paper with boxes on it. One box is 100 calories, I use 20 for 2000. Ie: __________________________________________________ |1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11...

I'll add my 2 cents... I just did my first marathon in the fall after a summer of triathlons and a century ride in the fall. I ran 3 times a week at best, and swam and biked the other days. Result - a pretty decent marathon, in-line with what I would expect based on my previous running results. And ...
