Hi Mary Kate - I'm doing brighton marathon on 14th April - yikes!!!
Enjoy hunting for your next challenge - the world's your oyster!
The Lakeland Trails marathon gives out kendal mint cake instead of gels at the water stations. Suited me fine. I'm fairly relaxed about trying out new foods during races cause I have the belly of a goat and can stomach pretty much anything and everything. Tablet is the food of the gods and fat is indeed an ultra runner's friend. My preferred ultra fuel is now cheese sandwiches made with potato scone instead of bread. Yum!
Aw Jelleybaby Brighton Marathon will be epic! Would love to do it myself one day, good luck and I hope all goes well for you on the day x
Hey run-with-dogs I agree, tablet is the food of the gods I am going to whip up a batch for the family at Easter. Yea your cheese sandwiches sound pretty good too, id say they would be perfect for quick refueling. And potato scone is amazeballs!
OKAY! So I now want to try some Scottish Tablet!
I'm with you Dustboy - can you recommend a good recipe Mary Kate (is it like fudge - I can make fudge!!!).
I hope this link works but I usually follow this ladies recipe, she does add vanilla to her sugar though, iv not tried it but im sure it still tastes great. Goog God im really craving some tablet now! by the way if the link doesnt work just type scottish tablet into google, this womans recipe is one of the first to pop up i think.
Thanks Mary Kate - I'll give it a go this weekend! You never know it may even come to Brighton with me!
BTW - if you want to browse and consider other races to do, my son bought me this book for Christmas 'World's Ultimate Running Races' it's a lovely book to read through and dream.....one day!
Thank you Jelleybaby I will check it out. Glad to hear you are giving the tablet a go I hope you like it
And all the best for Brighton!pop up a thread when you have completed it to let me know how you got on. Good luck!
If making your own there's nothing wrong with adding some chopped up walnuts!
