I'm back, password successfully changed.
Lost a posting though?
Just in case I don't post for a little while, don't panic!. I need to log out of RW but not sure if I can remember my password to log back in so I may have to wait for RW email re change of password.
Big G - I think you might need to see a physio re those achilles. It's not like you are doing masses of speedwork or have changed your shoes. Maybe heel lifts could help, physio will advise.
Snapdragon - brilliant news on your long run, obviously well fuelled with your picnic and the previous night's alcohol!.
Yes, I've tried shot bloks. I find them too chewy to eat during races, 3 bloks = 24g of carbs and I would struggle to eat them especially in colder weather.
I use Tesco fruit jellies, 3 sweets = 30g of carbs and I find them very easy to eat.
Fruit jellies 89 pence a bag, Shot Bloks £2.50 a packet
Keith - well done for completing the Grizzly, they usually estimate your marathon time as roughly your finish time.
