some running Phil, confidence boost at this point is always welcome!
I'm also in the wrong starting block according to the app but I had emailed htem and they confirmed my change so hope all is going to be well
Not long now...in marathon week itself, no major runs planned, 3/5 miles the max this week just keeping ticking over, not too nervous about the big day itself, for me its more flying to be honest, once thats over with ill worry about running!
yeah id agree with that - threw me off a little in London this year as i had a large enough dinner at 8pm the night before, pasta based of course, but id usually try and have my last large meal the day before at lunchtime and then just keep snacking on carb heavy foods throughout the evening (try to cut out fibre after 5pm) to ensure no nasty surprises during the marathon!
would agree that friday/saturday is enough to carb load, i remember first time round carb loading all week and ending up with extra weight, which is a bit pointless i guess
I'm going with the pace band after my london experience with the garmin! not to be trusted! thanks for the link to that site, going to print my own out now.
i've begun the listing and packing process for berlin - crazy how much stuff is needed, between the clothes, garmin+charger, energy gels, lucozade etc, soon builds up!
I had trouble the last time finding lucozade or bagels actually - bringing both this time round, although airport would be a fair bet to be able to find both, never thought of that last time! Im usually just glad to get out of the place!
Tipptop - yeah the st5 racers seem to have a fair heel to toe drop, but the sole especially on the sole is quite thin, definitely much less than the brooks adrenalines i usually run marathons in, and even feels like less than the adios boosts - but the heel cushioning is much better than the adios
