I did pretty well this year. I was a bit silly and went to the event with a cold so I was feeling absolutely sick at the end of it. But I've waited a year for this and I wasn't going to let illness stop me. Proper survivor, I am. =P
Well, can't really say survivor. I was caught at the very last horde and got infected:
1) If you have the chance, do some stretches. I absolutely ached yesterday and felt very tempted to borrow my gran's walking stick.
2) Cardio. It works.
3) If you have the chance to change into suitable wear don't wear denim shorts. I have a huge red patch on my thigh and that's sore to touch and scratches all across. Leggings, very baggy shorts or tracksuit bottoms are probably the best.
4) Trainers are the best footwear to have. Apparently some idiots wore flip flops and heels to 2.8 Hours Later, an event that is 96% running.
5) Don't eat a huge meal before doing all of this running. I almost paid the price for it yesterday after being tempted for tasty fish and chips.
I managed to get some videos this time and my friend did as well. Ones where we get chased by a horde so the camera is very shaky and a few where we were being really nice and enjoying watching others get chased. ^^
