Shades Marathon Training

Morning shadies..
Thanks fully this morning my stomach has settled and I'm feeling much more myself. Got a day of running around on the beach with my sons judo club and then I'm planning a 12 mile run to make up for the lack of running this weekend..

Shades - hope the leaked blackberry juice didn't make to much mess

Shades - I'm always looking for a new challenge so I'll certainly look at doing them. I might still do that route one day using my garmin.

Jugula - my condolences to you and your family at this tough time.

Shades - I spent a good hour last night getting things ready for today and i even found a gpx file that I uploaded to my garmin which eased my mind a bit. We had guests over and due to it being warm we had a bbq. Went to bed feeling excited but in the early hours of this morning my stomach didn't feel to great and has been upset all morning. ????. I've had to decide not to run today but i have been looking at other events in the coming weeks.

Afternoon all... Im sitting in a slight quandary at the moment.. I've planned to do the white cliffs challenge tomorrow (32 mile event). I know I'm fit enough for it but my issue is the navigation.. The directions are so involved that running would almost be impossible in order to read where you are going. I don't know what to do. On the one hand i want to give it a go but I don't fancy walking and on the other I don't want to sign up in the hope that there are runners that know the route that I can follow and then I end up being the only runner..

Mowzer - yes It is the White "cliffs" challenge. I got in touch with the organiser and he said I should come down and ask or him and he will help sort me out..I assume I need to take a mug with me for the checkpoints as no cups are Provided (or so I read on a LDWA forum) is it unusual to be slightly excited?

I find if i fancy something sweet/cold i have a mini twister which is 9g of carbs so not entirely good but not the worst...

Mowzer - I've looked at the LDWA website and there is a 32 mile challenge event this Sunday so I'll have to hope there are OTD entries available, plus it's just outside Dover so not to far from us.

Mower - Yeah I do all my runs on my own. Even the long ones but I do set up a playlist and listen to music to help keep me motivated. I'd love to do the long runs with company but all my friends think I've gone of the deep end to even contemplate running more than 1 mile lol.

I use xylotol as a sugar substitute which is (in my opinion) just as sweet without that artificial sweetner taste. I need to make some more fat bombs. Ditchthecarbs.com had some great recipes too.

Mallowpuff - I agree with southern Snail.... I would opt for the salad long before the pizza. I know it's easier said than done but try not let anyone beat you down.. Haters are gonna hate.. (sound like my teenager)
