Yep, all I do is whinge the last 30 miles.
I think I'm even worse during the taper!
I wouldn't want to put a stranger through that - I can get pretty down in the latter stages, which means no fun. That's a good buddy who'll run 40 miles with you.
I'm not a big fan of the taper, so I'm only cutting back a tiny bit.
Hi Jake. No pacer for me this time, unless someone fancies a wee 50 mile trot through the night. I'll hope to keep other runners in sight.
Tapers started yet?
Thanks chaps, useful stuff.
Good blog Geeem, I'd already read that and found it very helpful. I think I'm going to aim to hit 50 miles in 10.30, but this is my grand slam year, so a finish is my priority.
Nice boing there, Tigerspaw.
It certainly is hot down south right now, let's hope it cools down a bit for race day.
Any tips from anyone who's done this before?
