Minni v Dubai Dave
I'm in the fuel before, during and after camp, I get so hungry if I run over 10miles with nothing to eat. I can do a recovery run with no food but that is just 3 miles. If I do a longer run or speed session then I always have jam and toast up to an hour before I set off. On my return I have a Nesquik strawberry milkshake. I tend to use the gels when I go on my 20mile runs only, any run over 10miles I will use sweets every 5 miles, I'm sure they help
I wont have access to the Internet from Saturday am so will need to get my 6 runs in before then for Jantastic so I will be doing a double day(Only short runs)Blooming holiday getting in the way!
Well done to everyone getting there long runs in, its on my "to do list" when I return.
I hope everyone with niggles get sorted out very soon.
Barry- Sounds like a great speed session, that one will go on my list.
I think i took 2 gels and a bottle of LZS before VLM last year, then 6 gels, LZS and half a pack of Clif Shot Bloks during the race, followed by 2 bottles of Rioja afterwards.
Couldn't run further than 13 without something!
8 miles from me tonight inc. strides d & d and logged in Jantastic... Thank you, good night!
2old- I'm sure it was your fault and a few others on here talking about skiing that made me book up
It'll have been the fruit Minni! You need to get that student to come through with the eating plan.
Personally I'm a big fan of caffeine gels. Even if it's a placebo effect I don't care, something is giving me a boost and that's enough for me.
First Jantastic run logged. In shorts no less, my winter Lido trips are making me well hard.
Thanks for the York link Sarah, looks quite tempting. I'm leaning towards Abingdon but think accommodation might be a hassle.
Oh and I'm a massive tit and forgot to claim my GNR deferral in time. Whoops.
2Old Abingdon haven't confirmed an entry date yet, but I think it was early Feb last year.
Minni what's the course like for the Castles? It sounds hilly.
What a nightmare day. Left at 7:15am. Just got back. Knackered. Exercise done - zero
decent run tonight - had to do an errand so ran 4 mile WU, then was supposed to be 4m LT then 2 CD
unfortunately i got pacing all wrong and my 4M LT turned in to 2 x 2m at faster than LT (6.51 , 6.55, [2 min recovery] 6.45, 6.51) It wasnt intentional but i have a tendancy to tense up when trying to run faster - after i calmed down in the recovery i was faster and much more comfortable!
lessioned that need to be learned:1) learn to pace FFS2) calm down!!
then to top it off my shorts developed a whole and i lost my keys en route - so i had a 40 minute wait for the lady to get home while in my shorts, t shirt and gloves!!
luckily the local pub took my in - didnt falloff the wagon despite the temptation!!
still, 10 miles in the bag and logged on jantastic!
