Afternoon all. 31 days to go !
Karl - good to hear you're keeping the running going.
My man flu is clearing now, thankfully, and the running is getting easier although it's still harder going than this time 3 weeks ago. I did 6 miles at lunchtime at MP and the last couple of them were quite difficult but at least I'm feeling better overall. I've got the Grindleford Gallop at the weekend which is a 21 mile fell/trail race. It's going to be quite a tough run if I still feel like this but it's my last 20 miler of my plan.
Regarding jelly babies, I've never tried them during a run. Right from the start I have used High 5 gels and they seem to work for me. I've only ever taken 3 during a run so this weekend I'm planning on taking 5 which is what I plan to take on race day.
Hope everyone is holding up and keeping any niggles at bay. just think, in a few days time we will start posting comments about not having done enough training, is my fuel strategy right, I haven't got my number etc !
