Preparing for our Skiddaw Race

I decided to have a one week mini taper for the Grand Tour of Skiddaw.  So I went for an easy 5 mile run on Tuesday night and another easy 5 mile run this morning before work. I felt fairly sluggish for both so par for the course really!

We leave for Keswick tomorrow after work so tonight we packed our bags ready for Saturday’s race. Like most ultras races there is a list of compulsory kit you need to take so we made sure all that fitted into our bags.

I’m using my trusted North Face Unduro pack ….

We’ll take that!  I’ll be taking my camera so watch out for some photos and a video diary of the day!

If you want to take part in my ‘Guess our Time’ Competition you have until 9pm tonight.
