This week I’ve had two easy runs. Firstly on Monday lunchtime around Pollok Park and tonight after work on one of my regular 5 mile loops. I’m feeling good and ready for the race.
I’ve been planning my strategy for the race and even though I don’t know the course I’ve put together a rough plan. As this is a 2 x 30 mile loop it will be really interesting to see whether I can run an even pace over the two laps. That is certainly my aim.
So here is my rough plan for the race …
One of the other things I’ve been thinking about is whether I will see any of the 100 mile runners. They start at midnight (8 hrs before the 30/60 mile runners). I think they do a 10 loop first and then 3 laps.
Samuel Bolton posted his plan on Facebook …..
If this is about right then I will probably only see the 100 mile runners who will finish under 22hrs. According to this chart anyone around 24hrs or slower probably won’t pass through the start of the loop until after we have started so they will always be behind us.
I’m already looking forward to the Strava flyby to see where everyone is in relation to each other!!
I’m not the link to the tracker I’m taking will be posted soon so I will put a link on my blog and facebook if you want to follow my progress throughout Sunday!
