My only one was way back in 2004.
I did the 'what you are supposed to do' routine the night before - big mistake. As far as possible, treat the build up as just a normal long sunday run.
keep food, drink, routine as normal as possible. I ate too early on sat night - and ran out of energy!
i wish id been told its addictive and you could become obsessed with it all
still, there one thing came out of it all
it changed my lifestyle for the better
i dont reget anything
Well I've entered an October one now and am sat here thinking I've run very little.
I suffer from nervous guts before most races and had half a litre of chocolate milk before my last marathon. Probably does not sound much but it did have the effect of me not having to totally evacuate my guts before hand! I think this left me in a good position of not being dehydrated or free of all salts for the race.
I did so many things I should not have done before the last one I now feel more worried about this one!
Better get my trainers on! I have a 'definitely walked some of it' time to beat!
