O by the way in my mandatory kit list wot is a full windproof/showerproof body cover ive got a survival bag which can be used as a shelter ? thanks again blakester...
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...
ok. thanks lay of kfc then . blakes
its your mind making sure you rest well in the days before...........you will be fine..enjoy
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
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
