Must be about time to kick this off. Where is everyone hiding and how is your training going? Really excited about my first 100
I have now managed to recce the whole course so wanted to share a few thoughts.
1st 25 - seemed reasonably tame and a nice intro
2nd 25 - tough but great scenery to take your mind off it
3rd 25 - did this at night and found the night navigation between Holly Hill and Cuxton difficult in places
4th 25 - the last section from Lenham is a nice runnable section to finish on but not sure I will have any legs left by then as the section before it will be evil on tired legs! The steps and climbs between Little Kit's and Hollingbourne are going to be brutal at that stage of the race *GULP*
Couple of questions for the more seasoned campaigners...
Any strategies for dealing with the nettles which are likly to be like Trifids by then? Compression socks?
Does anyone wear ankle support for the night section or ever consider it? I turned my ankle a couple of times even with 2 lights whilst (head and hand) and with one of my ankles weak from an old injury, it does worry me a bit as would hate to DNF through something as daft as a knackered ankle.
