The Bonk — Runner’s Wall
Here’s an interesting story I came upon today on NPR Health. It’s about runners and how they can avoid hitting their “wall.” (That’s marathon runner talk for running out of energy.) A Harvard med student has figured out a formula that elite runners can use to 1)find out how much carbs they need to eat to avoid hitting their wall and 2)what their best marathon time could potentially be if they were to carbo load properly. There are a lot of other factors that I think are left out of this formula (namely your mental state), but it’s an interesting read.
