Firstly I’d like to thank you all for reading this, and for the messages I’ve received. I haven’t set a date yet – that’s the next thing to do, although I need to work out when I’m likely to be at weddings (especially the one I’m Maid of Honour at!). I was thinking late June / early July so there’s a chance of nicer weather.
Its start to sink in this weekend quite how hard this will be. I hadn’t really considered the fact that I’m going to need to carry lots of food, clothing, etc.. and so my runners backpack with its 18litre capacity just won’t cut it.
Also I’m struggling to find much advice on training for this as it all seems to be geared to people attempting 10mile a day or ultra marathon runners – and there’s no way I’ll be running this! I/m now starting to wish my school had offered the Duke of Edinburgh (not that I’d ave been likely to do it anyway)
So this is a cry for help – what are the main things I need to think about and prepare / train for?
Email responses are of course welcome but it’d be great if you could reply to this post so we can share the collective wisdom!
