Recovery between two events

Posted: 27/01/2014 at 13:49

Cheers, some great tips here. I am aiming to beat my time from 2012 for the 50 but I was fairly slow last time so that should be possible. The marathon is more for fun so time isn't important at all. I actually signed up for it and because another guy I know is doing it, so I am there as morale support (seemed like a good idea at the time!)

Hi James,

I haven't run that sort of distance then followed it up with another run so its a new one to me, training is going to involve a lot of back to back runs to get used it.

Thanks for the suggestions, some good ideas there. Not sure about the Guiness though, 3 pints and I would probably topple over

On May 17th I am running the NDW50 and the day after I will be running the Richmond Park Marathon. I was wondering if anyone who has done multi-day events on here has any suggestions/recommendations on how to maximise the recovery between the two so I am not moving like a zombie on the marathon.

NDW100 2013

I ran the NDW50 last year but had had a DNS on this years 50 due to an ankle injury. With the 100 in a month or so I am a little nervous now, still trying to get back up and running properly again (a marathon next week should see to that hopefully). Nervous about the lack of training I have been able to do, its pretty much been a wash out for the last few months with only cycling keeping my legs turning over!

Its not a massive section but I have recorded on Youtube the route from just before the Gravelly Hill aid station to Botley Aid station if that's any use to anyone, it has been edited to show the main junctions along that section.

Thanks for the replys, I got the Mafates from Pete Bland. Going to try changing socks see if that helps, but it could just be that my feet need 'breaking in'

Hokas arrived about a week ago and I have taken them on a couple of short runs, first being 8 miles over the downs. I had planned running longer but developed a blister under my right arch. Second run was 4 miles and I didn't get a blister, although it is possible I would have gotten one if I had carried on.

Anyone else had this? sizing wise the 9's seem perfect in the toe box area, I am just a bit worried about this blistering.

Thanks for the responses, I will have a hunt around and go for a 9 and hopefully that will be ok. I best start looking now if they are that hard to get!
