For breakfast this morning, I had Bulletproof Coffee (with 50g butter). In the race, I slowed and walked through aid stations three times, to have a cup of water only each time. And the short of it is that, yes there were a couple of weird points where I felt quite light-headed and one dark moment when I thought walking and probably stopping would be quite nice, but I pushed through them and was fine after that. Moreover, I held a stable, high heart rate all the way around (over 92% of 196 if we take that to be my HRmax now). I held a stable, good cadence all the way around (good indication of mindfulness/lack of tiredness) and I got all the way around the furthest run I've done (by 6km) since Ireland 70.3.
