Listen to your body

Posted on: 17 Feb 2006

Very touched by all the kind advice, mostly from non-runners, about strategies for dealing with the various problems I might expect to encounter during the event.

I was once advised, by a non-caravan towing motorist, how to deal with the phenomenon of 'snaking' should it occur whilst dragging my 13 year old Sprite from Calais to Bordeaux and beyond.

Suffice it to say that I am now very cautious about accepting advice and I'm not convinced that the best way to fund the estimated 4500 calories I expect to burn during the marathon, is to eat 16 Snickers bars on the way round the course.

I was majestic on the hamster wheel today. That is, I was King Tired afterwards.

Next long run on Sunday. More rain forecast.
