experimenting in Hull

As I'm only going to be running 100 miles at the weekend, and as my major race for the year is the Commonwealth Championships in September, I've decided to use the race in Hull this weekend to experiment with one or two things.

A few different foods, hypertonic drinks near the end instead of isotonic.

Different amounts of electrolytes ... and a different source.  Thanks to the good folks at Shotz for this.

I'll also be trying a different run-walk ratio and a different running speed.

As the weather forecast is for quite a bit of rain I guess I'll be also using, for the first time in an ultra race, clothes to try keep me dry.

I'll report back after the race to let you how the experiments went.
