Thanks chaps - good advice rob appreciate it, the 3 gels bit is great I just tried high five gels and they say on the packet take every 20 minutes!
My training runs are up to 22 miles, mostly around the 20 mile mark and on these I am not at full effort, and obviously short of marathon distance so I don't need gels ect. I do try out the odd as a test for race day but must take the given advice and try more.
Millsy the 20 mile @ MP was actually a race so not sure my MP would be much less than that, this coming marathon will be slower as it has close to 3000 foot of climb so will be out there a bit longer.
Off to get cliff blocks and jelly beans to try on a taper run
