@pursuedbyangrybees I've been using a Salomon Skin Pro 10+3 in training runs for the last few months and hope to use this during the event. It's incredibly comfortable and does not bounce (only used at half capacity). I would highly recomend this pack, if you can get all the kit inside.
@EKGO I wear Kayano's as I have overpronation on my right foot, and although doing the 2 day, was still going to have spare shoes at the halfway point, so might have a look at those Salomon XA's. And yes I'd already planed on several spare pairs on socks in my pack. I might even throw a pair of SealSkins in just incase.
Good list Weedy - I do like a list. My partner is forum-named oscarr.
Tips - they'd be good - have already picked up the 2nd pair of trainers for the 2nd day one (just in case it's another wet weekend - have put them on my chrimble list...
Weedy - no pressure on the photos (obviously) but if you get chance that'd be fab - I can print one out then and keep it on the fridge to keep me motivated when it's all yakky outside!
Dirty Weekend - yowsers - I have enough trouble running with the odd stile/gate/squeezy through thingy - never mind all the obstacles - that's just hardcore in my world!
LOL! We (stupidly) thought that the 'Dirty Weekend' would be a very good reason to incorporate core training into our workouts, so as least when we get to Carlise we'll hopefully be a very strong. I would have done the 13mi HALF MUCKER, but as my buddy pointed out it's the same price for the 20mi so no option really!
