How's everyone doing? Back from offshore so the next week is planned to get a couple of long runs in and then have a short taper.
I had to 'leap frog' one of the cps on both the Toad Challenge and Round Island events the year before last due to foot problems and still got medal + shirt for each one. Also as the event is open to those who just want to do a single day there must be a 33mile finisher's medal if you manage one full day.
Neil wants to be as encouraging as possible so I think he would probably feel that it is the effort rather than actual distance is what counts and should be rewarded.
A question for those who have done this course; how much water would you recommend carrying. I have an OMM ultra pack with a 650ml water bottle, would it be worth getting another bottle ?
Good luck all - meant to do a final burst up wretched Box Hill steps yesterday but decided less is more at this stage. The only style on the way has been replaced by a kissing gate . As for water - being a slow old Bear don't need much so will probably only carry 1lt max.
Looking foward to this one, I'm doing the MDS this year so this will give me a good idea of my fitness levels. Still considering how much weight i should carry, don't want get injured before the MDS! See ya there, traveling from Portsmouth
