I went up to cycle some of the day 1 route yesterday. It was fine. We picked the central 25 miles and did an out and back. What look like hills on the elevation profile are mere undulations and I only remember one 'hill' and that was short. The whole thing is an upwards 'drag' incline and I think it could be quite leg-sapping. And also potential to be VERY windy as it's quite exposed.
I'm quite nervous about the last 14 mile run/trek: Think I may be doing more trekking than running as the running training hasn't been up to scratch and I'm not great at running off the bike.
Question - my trail shoes are very slippery on rock, and I find trainers better. I'm therefore planning to use trainers for the last yomp.... is this suicide?
