Interesting stuff re carbs TD. I can only physically carry 6 gels with my belt and usually consume one each 6km. I've been training without gels this time in the hope that I get an added energy boost during the mara.
Training going reasonably well for me. No-one runs around this part of la France Profonde so I am always on my own. I am viewed as the local nutter but I'm used to it by now.
Had an aborted 32km run on Monday as I feared that I may get injured by airborne branches, such was the strength of the wind. Managed eventually to get out and do my LSR run yesterday in beautiful weather.
Don''t get me started on Garmins. I have an on-going battle with mine as no amount of resetting will convince the device that I am not a young, short and very heavy man!
Is the plan to meet in the Irish bar again after the race? My husband (who works in Paris) says that the Guinness is now watered down....sacre bleu !
SalC - 24 miles....wow! My longest run has been 21 miles but I do live near the Pyrénées so everywhere around here is hilly. I too am hoping for a PB.
I am still fretting about this bloody bus that will take us to the start. Will the expo explain where we catch the bus and at what time or is there info' on the website? I am a worrier; I will worry if there there isn't anything to worry about!!
I arrive in Venice the day before the race so the sights will be new and exciting for Sunday.
