Just eat a normal diet... maybe a little more carbs than normal but you wont gain anything from shoveliing extra food in.

Windproof/shower proof kit refers to jacket and trousers...

You can't really run in a survival bag. It would need to be foul weather to wear the trousers but you have to plan for those circumstances. Have fun !

Really weird this morning woken up with really tired sore legs have not trained for a few days so not training related.

Is this my body saying your not going to run almost seventy miles the day after tomorrow!

I agree with the above, head palying tricks, I had a similar problem before last weekend, I felt really bad, I had completed a 35 mile run end of May and relaxed back, possibly too early, I put it down to taper problems (only did minimal miles in June) so I did a couple of short runs and quite a lot of biking this week to put my legs back in exercise mode and it feels really good. I think for me, tapering can have the effect of letting the aches and pains take hold but thankfully it seems it's temporary

Thanks for the advice. Just weird to ache without putting the training in. I think my mind has lots of tricks in store for me.

I feel the same before races every ache and pains come back to haunt you but a few miles in no problems.same as tapering didn't do it before brightons marathon and used it as a training run and ran a pb.happy days.

i see you get around all the forums Seren - just doing homework for after the Outlaw - i got to get an ultra in this year at some point,but starting to think that 12 days rest isnt really enough time to recover for grimsthorp
