Last year I walked the Isle of Wight challenge (107k). I felt fine but my feet were absolutely devastated, they were bloody pulp by the end.
This year I've decided to walk the climbs and run the rest of the course, but I could really do with some advice as I was woefully underprepared last time.
Aside from some proper trail shoes, what do people do for foot care? I was planning on putting some moleskin plaster on my soles and wearing a couple of pairs of socks - stopping to check my feet and reapply plasters at each water station (every 15k).
I ate a lot on the walk, a 2k breakfast and meals/snacks at every stop. That was fine for walking (other than desperately needing the toilet at the worst times), but I've never been great running with much food in my stomach. Do folks normally eat little and often, and perhaps have a reasonable breakfast a couple of hours before the start?
I'd really appreciate some advice from those with experience.
