Hey guys,

Not really sure where this should go, but since it is a matter of physical preparedness I will put it here. I am doing the Krispy Kreme Challenge tomorrow morning at 9:30 am. This consists of

Run 2 miles to Krispy Kreme
Eat 12 doughnuts
Run 2 miles home

I am curious if anyone has any suggestions, I am thinking of going low carb today so I may be craving doughnuts, but not sure if this will really effect my running ability. I am thinking of doing the race on an empty stomach, I do well working out fasted. I plan on soaking all the sugar off doughnuts and chewing maybe 2 at a time. Does anyone have any suggestions of supplements, strategies, mental angles or anything that will help me complete this challenge the fastest.

Thanks for all the good info on these boards!

Danny

Don't go low carb today! Eat some sugary snacks before bed so you'll be hungry in a few hours. Wake up a couple hours early and eat some Rollo or a Milky Way bar, something to make you hungry. Maybe have a couple beers at 8 am. It's cool.

Go moderate to slow on your 2 mi run if you can; you don't want to ruin your appetite. Once there, start on the creme or jelly filled first. You don't want to be cramming those at the end. I'd go with water or juice over milk since you have to jog back.

Good luck. Take pictures.

Thanks Gant, that's the type of stuff I wasn't so sure of! Will take those poitns into account. The upside is that it's a big NC State Raleigh area event and the profits go to cancer. I'm also an eater, and pushing the limits of my eating sprint capacity is someting I've been waiting to do since I got off SS. So sugars before bed to make me hungry, that is true, ate a little piece of coffeecake from my mother and instantly was hungry!

edit*** also Gant, thier all just the glazed doughnuts, nothing to make it really hardcore, and yes, I didn't make it clear but I am using water forsure to soak them!

Thanks!

I heard of this, someone I work with is doing this... hmm I thought it was just a challenge to eat as many donuts as you can but I guess it's an actual run. Hmm, sounds like a good treat this weekend for a cheat meal.

That's too bad. A little cheat like this now and then isn't bad. I only eat doughnuts about 3 times a year, but when I do, it's on! If I could get a creme-filled bear claw fried kolache, I would.

I'd savor the doughnuts if I could. You mentioned that you were an eater. Even though I'm a former member of IFOCE (which permits dunking, mashing, etc.), I prefer Picnic Rules used by AICE (you eat the food as it was intended). Either way, you should have a plan in place. You don't want a Roman Incident.

Are these Paleo doughnuts? I've got a great recipe for doughnuts (mashed sweet potatoes, coconut milk, almond meal, fried in coconut oil, and topped with honey).

What an excellent concept! Definitely the only way you'd ever get me to run 2 miles for sure :p

+1 or whatever it is, for pictures.

Why soak the sugar? If I were you, I'd go the whole way. Of course I'd probably puke as well, and would have that in mind. I may as well enjoy eating the donuts, cause they'd be coming up on the run regardless.

Have fun.

Hey guys!!

Great tips by all. Even though I haven't run in about 6 months(more than 1 mile) I hammered through 4 miles and twelve dough nuts in around 42:00 unofficial timing. I was pretty boss on the eating, they were stale dough nuts so don't feel bad that I mashed them down and sloshed them in water. 1 minute of feeling them coming up after the 11th and 12th but one burp and one foot in front of the other and I was off. After the 10th it was kind of like the Fran mentality, resting now will only prolong it and won't even make you feel better, so mind as well finish it out.


Fun race for everyone and I believe over $50,000 raised for cancer so that's great! Thanks for all the training tips, and I'm back to Clean and Jerks, Fuck Running(but I love eating:)) !

Solid. 12 donuts, stale, fresh, sloshed in water, bone dry. It doesn't matter, that's a big effort. And akin to a 300lb clean and jerk any day. Nice fundraising for the fight against cancer too. You guys are onto something out there.

I hate to disappoint, but the paleo donut was a joke.

Every paleo adaptation seems to feature sweet potatoes, coconut milk, almond meal, and coconut oil, so why not donuts?

On the other hand, I'm inspired to try this out...

Good one, Arien. It is quite funny once I was told it was a joke!

Arien! time to experiment and find a recipe!

Not doughnuts, but these almond butter cookies look good.

Almond Butter Cookies

1/4 c almond butter
8 pkts Splenda
2T egg beaters
1/4 tsp baking soda

Preheat oven to 325, and spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray. Mix all the ingredients until smooth. Drop into 6 equal portions on cookie sheet. Bake at 325 for 7-8 minutes. Mmmmmmm. (Don't have almond butter? Use PB. It still rocks. )

Gant, are you really a former competitive eater? If so, I'd love to hear some PR's and milestones.
