For breakfast on race day i intend to bring some muesli with me and then have some peanut butter sandwiches in the start area. I am also going to bring some foam cushions to sit on in the start pen.
Lorenzo - I am hopefully going to be flexible with my plan. The absolute backstop should be 9.50 min mileing or 10k per hour in distance. In terms of pace, i think i will try to go for about 9 min mileing early on and intend to break the race down into 15k chunks. Then every 15k i am allowing myself to drift 10 seconds a mile (that's average pace) and see how i feel at various points. During the big 5 hills i think i will try to run 4-5 minutes then walk for 1 minute to try and keep fresh. I also plan to walk every 5km to eat something as well.
This time, i would just like to get further than fields hill and still be on track for my goal. I just want to give myself a chance at Polly Shorts for my target.
Whats your plan? Always interested to hear other peoples take on their race strategy.
Hope everyone enjoying the taper. And where are all these lists??
