The day before the day of a long day. I'm doing my normal prerace prep of a pot of coffee to hydrate, over eating every high calorie thing I can find and washing it all down with some dark beer as the pain killing anti inflamatory . It has worked in the past, don't change what works. Being stuffed and drugged before the race is sometimes what is needed before hand, it's the only way to get someone to roll up to the start line for 9 plus hours of abuse. Distraction works, at least on me, for a moment or two. Race rundown Sunday. Promise.
