making preparations

Spent much of today getting things organised for the trip to Poland at the end of the week.  We fly out on Thursday afternoon, race on Saturday and Sunday before flying home on Monday afternoon.  I'll be leaving home at 9.30am on Thursday and arrive back at about 7.30pm on Monday.

As well as getting all the kit, food and gear ready to pack tomorrow I also made a 1kg batch of flapjack.  I think homemade flapjack is ideal for ultras ... oats, golden syrup, sugar and whatever else you care to add.  I've added extra vitamins and minerals to this batch ... iron, selenium, zinc and vitamins B1 (thiamin), B2 (riboflavin), B3 (niacin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6, B9 (folic acid), B12, C, D

It doesn't taste too bad, it's definitely better than you would expect.

Good luck Chris, I still love the idea of you eating 2 pounds of flapjack in no other sport would we even concider this as normal :-)
