Thanks for all tips guys. Think will run with water and my sis gels. Finishing time ? Blimey, no idea, PB of 3.46 at Chester, so maybe 4.40 ? Will settle for finishing my 1st Snod

21 hilly miles done yesterday. Really struggled towards end. Getting slightly concerned as Snod will be longer and hillier. On positive side, will have tapered and will not have done 23 the week before. (Also eat shed load of pasta an hour before which didn't help)

Think will not be carring lucozade with me as it burned my throat. Still undecided as to whether to carry drinks with me or rely on aid stations. 


Rivington Half next Sat, 12 on Sunday, 17 week after and taper time.

18 miles today after parkrun. Slightly concerned as was knackered at the end. Run was 418 metres but were some very steep climbs involved and quite a bit off road. Would someone mind having a look at my run profile, never done SNOD before and am slightly concerned as that has another 500 odd metres attached to it.

Got 23 next week, not sure how to go about that elevation wise. Had 2 gels today but it was my legs that were tired. Think mile 12 ish depleted me as it was very steep and off road.

Not one for panicking but today's run really did take it out of me

Hi all, did a 16 miler today with 335 metres of climb. Mileage is down this year compared with others but have been racing a lot more, be interesting to see what difference it makes.


Question is in my longest run (23m) how many more metres would you put into the run? Live in a hilly area so hills aren't an issue. Should I train to near the 800m mark ?

Popping over to the Motherland to do the N Wales Half on Sunday, anyone else running it ?

Anyone know what gels/drinks are used on the course as would like to train with them if possible ?


Thank you
