I'm almost certainly not doing this one now, thanks to being too busy to train properly. I'm entered in the bristol half on Sunday, which was for training but I was planning to go all out. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to pull out of the half too as I just wasn't getting out for any decent runs but now, I think I'm going to do the half and see how it goes. I still very much doubt I'll do B2B as I can't see when I'll get any long runs in beforehand but, you never know. If I do it, it will be just with the aim of finishing.
Hope everyone elses training has been better. Enjoy the half on Sunday.
Haven't posted here in a while as the mileage has slowed down considerably since I did my ultra. Am now back in training for a marathon though, so things are picking up again. I'm currently on 976 miles for the year, so should get over the 1000 miles mark some time next week.
I tend to wear mine more for recovery than during a run. I'll only wear them on a really long run (over marathon distance) and found them helpful on a 100k ultra. I've seen some people wearing them for a 5k, which seems a little unnecessary.
That is bad shawk. I feel bad for people who regularly use footpaths when they get confronted with a load of runners blocking the way so they must really get pissed off when they see a load of markers just getting left out on the course (along with the odd gel wrapper no doubt) and quite rightly. I have heard the odd moan about endurance life now and again actually. The courses look so good though that I'd probably be willing to overlook the gripes to give one a go.
