Pizza I can accept. Wib , can you make sure there's done on your aid stAtion for me )))

Remind me nearer the time and will try and sort a pizza for you if you want! Although 50 miles you should be fine on a handful of gels

gels for 50 miles  I'm taking a cheese and chutney baguette with me next weekend, yum yum!!!

Gels.....ugh. Like supping on superglu! Couple of sandwiches at various points will be better. You might even get Loula to provide some fruitcake

Touie - I find it hard to digest too much when running hard so gels are perfect for me up to 50 miles. At Caesar's camp I just ate a shot blok roughly every 15 mins.

I guess it means you don't have to carry as much and can run faster! At my pace i could probably consume a 3 course meal on the go

Haha. Yeah it was ideal I just ran with a handheld and one packet of shot blocks at a time. Swapped them over for a new one every 10 miles.

Wib - it'd be a death march for me on gels for 50 miles for me the fun is looking forward to what I'm gonna eat the whole way

my incentive is the meal at the end... nothing like a full english cooked breakfast to refuel those dead cells

07/01/2013 at 07:52
I am good at cooked breakfasts
07/01/2013 at 08:01
I eat them at any time of day... Never a wrong time for bacon and eggs Lou
