I don't get the "go out as fast as you can and hold on" approach, surely it just ends in a world of pain?!!
Errrm Shades - you'd better add me to the list for Burton Bradstock as I seem to have accidentally entered....
Thanks Steve, can't wait to start the race. I'm going to get all my stuff ready tonight and get organised as on race morning I am all over them place and faffing around trying to find stuff normally.
I am enjoying the carb loading, it's a bit of a balancing act trying to not eat too much and making myself a bit bloated. I'd like to think I've got the balance about right. Also drinking plenty of water.
I normally have a big bowl of porridge a couple of hours before my HM's so I plan to do the same. I also have a couple of rounds of toast with jam about 1 1/2 hours before, then a banana 20 mins before race. I can feel a bit full but I seem to burn off the "heavy feeling" by about the 6 mile point.
