Hello. Another late addition to the thread. Skimmed through first few and last few pages so please forgive me if these questions have been asked / answered already somewhere in between.
On the website it says "MyProtein will supply a specially packaged isotonic drink at three drink stations on course" - I searched for MyProtein drinks products but couldn't find an obvious isotonic drink that's readily available. Given the advice is normally not to try something new on the day, is it best to avoid or by 'specially packaged' do they actually mean they are using another more popular brand?
What's everyones advice on when to do the final long(est) run? I've seen lots of programs that suggest 4 weeks before and other that say 3. Personally, I'm going for 3 weeks before so have a 20-21 miler planned for this weekend.
This is my 3rd marathon although the first two didn't really go to plan so trying again with a much better hydration / nutrition / training plan than previously used (the hydration / nutrition being almost non existent before). I'll probably be a regular on here now until the marathon so if you want to add me to the list then PB is 4:31:54. Target 4:14:59.
