Thanks for the tips. Last long hilly training run this Saturday, so planning in rehearsal for race day. Up early, race day breakfast and usual pre race prep. Race kit on and then start running at 10:30. Nice hilly course and planning 22+ miles, testing pacing and nutrition, then stepping down training before taper madness kicks in.
Any advice on other 'tests' or tips?
Morning guys, just made the jump over from the Tru side after a season finishing with Ironman Wales. Snowdon will be my first mararhon on 'fresh' legs and struggling at the mo' with the menal side. After 5 years of IM I've got the run/walk/survive mentality, but need to adopt a run mentality. It's getting there, as is running the hills.
Anyway, looking forward to this race, it only ever gets good feedback, and hopefully picking up some useful info from this thread
Batty Hattie, not next year, no Ironman for me, 5 in 5 years (3 Wales) and I'm up for a change, a few Ultras, long bikes, a few HIM, Long Course Weekend and get generally fitter and stronger. Planning on 2017 when I step up an age group
