IMHO i would not recommend a hot curry the night before, i find spicy food pre race plays total havoc with my system, but then we are all different  

 

Me too.  Likely to keep me up all night with stomach cramps.

conversely - my marathon PB is off the back of a hot curry the evening before...

Just wondering how Geordie Boy's OH was managing in the year and a bit between his OP and his response yesterday.....hope she's not too bunged up

I'd suggest a nice hot water drunk straight when you wake up, and then finish eating 3hours before your race start.

the adrenaline and nature will then set things to work.

Getting it right for training takes a lot more sorting I find, especially when the session is demanding. Fruit and dairy need to be very carefully taken on board I find.
