Ah yes. Another fan here of Alpkit. Problem is that they always run out at this time of the year, probably due to forums like this one where everybody comes on in October asking for advice on headtorches .
Anyway. Tapering down now for Dublin on Monday so an easy 5 miles tonight at marathon pace. Funny thing is I'm not feeling any stress or anxiety yet. Not really feeling anything at all, which is odd.
DD let me know if you want more detailed advice and I'll send you a PM.
Nessie - always believed in Guinness, especially over here in Ireland where it's a million times better than in the UK. The nearest pub to where I used to work was also the closest pub to Arthur's birthplace and many people thought served the best pint in Ireland....not sure I can confirm that (as there's still a couple I've not drank in), but it was very, very good.
Anyway, 5 hilly miles running solo around the local woods in the dark. Nice.
