B is right compeed are really good as is bodyglide on any bits that chafe. I tend to wear the monoskin socks as I find the twin skin ones can bunch up and cause rubbing and blisters.
Did a 20 mile train run today so I'm finally feeling ready for the marathon.
Last call for runners and supporters. The Good Sister will be divvying up and sorting out in the next few days.
All Excited now Its getting close!!!
Cheers all for the advice re blisters, thankfully this one has gone done a few runs and no issues at all. Well apart from yesterday when a bird shat on my head. ha ha Ah the things we go through. I have decided though just in case on the long runs I am going to put a Compeed plaster on the area the blister was, extra protection.
Hey guys, I've been quiet on the forums recently due to RL stuff taking over but just wanted to pop back to say that I will DEFINITELY be joining the supporters crew at the VLM
I've recently discovered the joys of Compeed blister plasters - I had two huuuuuge blood blisters on the soles of my feet (result of running in icy slush with the wrong socks) and literally tried everything in the anti-blister aisle at Boots to get rid of them. My top tip (if you have large blisters) is to use the EXTREME ones that are meant for heels, rather than the underfoot ones and if you are going to be doing a long run, consider using some zinc oxide tape over the top to make sure the plaster doesn't budge. Mine have completely gone now and the skin is almost as good as new
TP - three of my non-forum friends are running VLM, am I allowed to add them to the runners list or is that too cheeky?
i could get there off the A13 could'nt i or we
i could phone the Azda manager and explain my siuation and ask if we could park there for the day
please - those who have been before, how far roughly is Azda from the Support zone
400m would be my estimate and I am sure they'd let you park Mick if you explained.
Just add your friends Xine or if you want them in your group just 'adopt' them into it when the people are divvied up
Fab, thanks TP - I'll adopt them into my group
I am so excited about cheering squad duties, possibly more excited than I am about running Brighton the week before!
I think we're planning to do the divvy up this weekend or early next week. About a month beforehand is the usual time
