OK the nerves are setting in it's a month until my first marathon. i'm in the 5 hour plus bracket to me that's running it. I know to some of you that's a slow walk
Anyway, I'm thinking either high five isogel plus or Jelly Babies.
Reading up it seems that i should be taking possibly 2 or even 3 gels an hour, 2 seems possible i guess but just want to check. Am I being daft or is that right and if i'm going to take 5 hours plus, around 5.30 i should be basically taking them every half hour after i start running, which is around 52g of carbohydrates an hour, so about the same as 60odd grammes of jelly babies per hour. So again if 5plus hour is that 300+g of jelly babies so a bag n a half that i should be taking with me?
