I ran the NDW50 last year but had had a DNS on this years 50 due to an ankle injury. With the 100 in a month or so I am a little nervous now, still trying to get back up and running properly again (a marathon next week should see to that hopefully). Nervous about the lack of training I have been able to do, its pretty much been a wash out for the last few months with only cycling keeping my legs turning over!
Its not a massive section but I have recorded on Youtube the route from just before the Gravelly Hill aid station to Botley Aid station if that's any use to anyone, it has been edited to show the main junctions along that section.
Hokas arrived about a week ago and I have taken them on a couple of short runs, first being 8 miles over the downs. I had planned running longer but developed a blister under my right arch. Second run was 4 miles and I didn't get a blister, although it is possible I would have gotten one if I had carried on.
Anyone else had this? sizing wise the 9's seem perfect in the toe box area, I am just a bit worried about this blistering.
