** Didn't feel like I had much gas in the tank this morning, the 'turbo button' that I can normally apply wasn't working !! Guessing from my bodyweight I might be a little dehydrated, so will take in a few more calories and fluids throughout the day

So all I have left is two 60min runs tomorrow (morning & evening) and then that's it until the race :cry:

Friday and Saturday will be a chance for me to rest and recover before the early race start on Sunday morning. Have never raced a 50km before so I am really looking forward to it. My plan is to go out at around a 5'27"km pace and hold that ~ the splits I am aiming for are:

5km: 27.30
10km: 54.30
21km: 1.55.00
42km: 3.52.00

If I can get to the 42km mark inside 4hrs I should be on track to finish up around 4.40 for the 50km.

Nearly there, I hate the waiting part of it.

Diet doesn't change much for running but it does change a fair bit for lifting as I usually need to drop weight to make the class. Nothing major though, just swapping out heavier foods for lighter ones and manipulating my water intake.

Just heard that the fiance of my wifes' cousin had a heart attack while training this morning, she's flying over to France to be with him.

Fingers crossed he will pull through, he has been put in an induced coma for the next 48 hours. :(

Kids are finally up to bed for the night, just got back from a nice four course meal with my wife which is something we hardly ever get the chance to do.

Bag is all packed and I am feeling ready to run, looking forward to it. Early start in the morning as I have to be at Hagley park to sign on by 6.30am ~ race starts at 7am. Bring it on... hopefully just under 5hrs of not too much pain :shock:

Whoa dude 5th place on a 50 mile run, that's awesome! Congrats! Did you hit the pub after??? At the marathons here they always have a giant flatbed truck full of bananas, and kegs of beer set up for the runners.

I didn't have a beer for a few days after the run, not sure why as it's one thing I crave after hard sessions. Maybe I just forgot as I was catching up with friends and just having a good old time :?

I only did the 50km run NOT the 50miles, mine was the 'baby ultra'. 5th place yeah, but there were only 10 people running the 50km lol. I let a guy pass me about 30km in and I didn't realise he and I were in the same group otherwise I would have stuck with him, I let him go after I spent a couple of minutes in the toilet and it was only at prize giving I realised the bugger had got 3rd place. I should have skipped the toilet and stayed on his heels grrrrrrrr.

LOL! It didn't occur to me that they would have bathrooms on the side of the race. But haha that's funny you dropped to 5th because you dropped trou! Still impressive buddy, and a hell of a lot farther than I could ever run. Plenty of time for beers in the future. Maybe you should come to the States and try a real ale! 8) :augenroller:
