Yep, can't wait for it. I'm proper excited.
Training has gone really well for me and I've done absolutely as much as I can without detracting too much from 'normal' life. I've done a few 30-45 mile ultras as well as a bunch of long training runs (28-56 miles). I've kept back-to-back-to-back-to-backs fairly short (10 miles), fairly lumpy (2000ft) and fairly quick (9-9.30's) so I can build up enough fatigue resistance without completely alienating the family. Also done a fair bit of work with a 75lb bergan.
So, the hay is in the barn; the next 3 weeks are all about squaring my kit away and pouring over the maps. I would have loved to recce the course a bit but that's a luxury I don't have.
