resting bad joints but will i get stiff if i dont run?
we will be at Blackpool -
i'd just have the gentlest of a jog - walk just a few minutes to keep the body motivated and the mind sharp
then relax, dont go walking around shopping centres all day and wear yourself out
get plenty of your favouirte fluid in you , and eat well
over do it and you may wel lstart - but might not finish
see us at back and we'll chat
do NOT go expereimenting with any new foods or drink either
stick with what you know,
plenty of time after to expereiment
dont be silly enough if offered something on race day - to think, oh ok - and vomit it up later - and DNF
dont let them see any i pod, they may pull you out
it's Uk AAA rules now
eat well, but what you know
try some nice breathing to calm the excitement
i'll be at back with wheelchair - it's our 235th HM to add to our 41 FM's
Good Luck GellyBean, I always have porridge and stick a banana in to works a treat for me too I usually have pasta the day before
Look forward to hearing all about it after just enjoy it and keep smiling
Gellybean - the no ipod rule is for you own safety and that of those around you. Don't worry, the atmosphere will enough that you shouldn't mis the music, plus it will allow you to chat to others if you wish and hear the cheering of the crowd thatyou might miss otherwise.
For a HM I wouldn't eat any more than usual the day before, I think there's far more risk of getting to the start line feeling all bloated and causing GI distress during the run if you consume more.
Like MicknPhil I too would do something gentle the day before and have a rest day today, but each to their own and some prefer to rest the day before. A swim can alos be good to losen you up.
Enjoy the race.
