How important is cross training when preparing for a 1/2 marathon?

Load up on carbs the night before like everyone else is saying.

On race day, stick to eating fruits, vegetables, power bars, and sandwiches. Also stay hydrated by drinking sports drinks or water. The main thing is to stay away from any food including sugar and or grease. That means bacons and energy drinks are a definite disaster. Sugar doesn't hold long enough to help unless your running a 40yd dash, which they don't have in track.

What's ur 100m time?

It mostly matters what you ate the day before, but it still matters what you eat during the day. As long as it is healthy, and has healthy carbs and protein then you should eat it. I recommend bananas, power bars, apples.
Any type of fruit will work.
Salt-free saltine crackers with peanut butter are very good for you if you don't have a lot.

Hope this helps!

What is your best 5K time, and where was it?

"Bit O Honey" bars

These were given to our track team by the coach. They are full of quick energy and carbs(32 grams per bar) they taste good.

Most of the breads take too long to convert to sugars, with bit of honey, there is no delay in getting the sugar into the blood stream .. The bars are cut into pieces that you can take thoughout the day before each event.

quick energy=optimum times

SO go out with your bit of honey and win one for ole Coach Curly of WBHS...

good luck..
