Well the race packs have arrived today. I'm in zone 5 and Keith zone 6. Need to sort out me dropping back or a meeting point as we want to run together. The training is still a bit up and down. The Hilton Half went well, fuelling and the run/walk strategy worked. Last week 18 mile didn't go as well and became 8. I had a dizzy spell a bad pain on the right side of my chest. Not sure if the change of gels is agreeing with me, plus we went out later in the day as well. So this week is the longest run of the training programme, 21 miles round the Guild Wheel. We will be getting out early and going back to the original gels.
The arrival of the race packs, the longest run weekend all make this feel so real and so close.
Thanks for the advice on fuelling. Thinking of trying Haribo's as well. I love them and with the run I'll burn the calories no problem.
Off to cath up with all your exploits.
