A great post – care of Manufacturing Executive – that I found from Twitter of a presentation from Dave Evans at Cisco back in July last year. 10 technology innovations and trends that are happening now that will impact all our lives over the next 10 years…
Here’s the overview list…
The Internet of Things – more ‘things’ being connected to the Internet than people
Big data – allowing us to predict more things and change the way we plan
The cloud – making all knowledge of the world available to everyone
The next generation Internet – network speeds are increasing exponentially
Hyper connectivity – realtime broadcasts with unprecedented transparency
The power of energy – intelligent use of energy
Augmented reality – and the ultimate man-machine integration
3D printing – everyone becomes a manufacturer
Artificial intelligence – completely intelligent and self-aware computers
As an aside Dave’s job title has to be one of the coolest ones out there – Chief Futurist & Chief Technologist. It clearly demonstrates the importance and criticality of innovation in technology. Do you have one of these chiefs?
I always try to run after food – normally an hour ish after breakfast or 1-2 hours after lunch or dinner. And I’ve always found my energy levels pretty good like this. For some longer long runs I’ll take energy drinks with me though most times not. On the marathon itself, back in 2009, I found myself drinking the energy drinks along the route whenever they were available – my energy levels then just seemed to be shot to bits, so I needed the top-ups.
A good review of some of the more commonly available energy gels and snacks is here.
This last weekend I did an early morning 1/2 marathon and decided not to have breakfast – but did have a small packet of Jelly Belly’s sport beans (about 30 minutes before the run). The run started well – and along one of my usual routes – but even before half way my pace had slowed far more than I’d wanted and the running was hard. Managed to do 1:46 but it was no way near where I wanted to be. For me breakfast is a must before the morning runs.
Not a fry-up though – as good as that looks. A nice bowl of gluten free cereals and rice milk. And no coffee before running – to save me having to go to the loo mid-way.
After my longer runs now, I alway drink a bottle (or 2 for long long ones) of Lucozade Sports Orange Body Gel – the same drink they hand-out along the London Marathon route.
What do you eat before you run? And how long before?
