But I doubt I'll be "steaming" past anyone.
"Please remember to run on the left at all times and pass other runners as quickly as possible"(Taken from the provisional race information)
So I guess if everyone stays left and and don't run 2,3 or 4 abreast and do take heed of anyone politely signalling the intention to pass, then we'll all be ok.
Just found OC's masterclass.
What a good thread. Good thing I didn't see it three months ago or I'd have come in with yet another view on nutrition/salts/water to confuse everyone .
What is your view on salt and hydration?
I have just found salt tabs and wow! It may be placebo but worked for me on a long ride.
That's a good question MT, I'm looking forward to the answer as I've put salt tablets on my list of things to buy today, but haven't a clue how to carry or take them.
I use Nuun tabs in one water bottle for the electrolytes. I also have a small bag with a mixture of jelly babies or haribo and cashew nuts. It has worked for me in the past on hot days.
I have stuffed my salt tabs in an empty contact lens holder. It fits nicely on my race belt. They do sell an expensive dispensor thingy, but I prefer the Heath Robinson approach.
I dont know how to take them. The bottle suggest 1/2 an hour upto a max of 10. I have tried 1 an hour on a hot day and felt the benefit.
Cashew nuts, yum.
Another thing for the list
mini pork pies... Never race without them.....
Oh and nice to meet up at last MT
Are we going to try, to have a team photo?.....Maybe after the 1pm briefing?
Are salt tabs the same as Nuun or are they different? If so where do you buy them from?
Salt tabs are different to nunn, bought mine online from TRIUK. A good bike shop should have them.
