A good pace plan there Tom and comfortably pace 11 miler too.
I've found my eating pattern has changed a bit Malcs. I tend to do all my running during the week at night and this means I don't get to eat my dinner till 9pm (sometimes later!). So I've found myself eating more mid afternoon snacks. For example this afternoon I had a yogurt, 2 x buttered teacakes & a banana. As tonight I did an easy paced 8.00m/m 14 miler, so I knew I needed something before doing that even at a comfortable pace.
Well done on your Ultra BikeIt, I'd doubt if I could go that far in one go. hope the blisters have eased.
Brilliant time in the Bath half Jools - still a good bit of form! And brilliant time too Wool.
G-Dawg - fingers crossed it is just a niggle and not too serious.
Badbark - that;s a very impressive month of training the bank. Well done on your HM PB.
Been busy the last week, but did a time on feet 23 miler on Sunday @ 7.52 pace to take me up to 67 miles for the week (my biggest weekly mileage). Monday night did 3 x 2 mile reps and last night 6 miles in av 6.40 pace. So I'm hoping my speed endurance is heading in the right direction.
I usually put a bit of vaseline at the bottom of my back too to stop any chaffing. Probably best to try it out a few times with the gels in to get used to how it feels and also practising getting the gels out okay.
