I seem to be getting on well with separating hydration and nutrition.
For hydration I add a High-5 hydration tablet to water.
For nutrition I either go for gels (SiS) for a marathon, for Ultra's I eat what I fancy, could be anything and everything.
And for the caffeine hit I like full strength coca-cola
Love the 'rocky track' I overtake loads during that part of the course.
And this year I'm running all the way up Waun Fawr, even if it is slower than walking
BR, yes, along the River Spey from Ballindalloch to Buckie. I've only done five races in Scotland, three Highland Fling's, the Speyside Way Ultra (last Saturday) and the only rubbish race was the Edinburgh Marathon, that sucked big time.
Penultimate Ultra completed on Saturday, marathon (or longer) #76.
Felt great for the first 17-18 miles but for a flatlander started to struggle after the hill, Ben Aigan, when the course reverted to tarmac.
Worked really hard to finish.
But good training for SNOD14
