Well, I will confess I am a bit nervous now. Spartan Beast tomorrow, and in the last week they have upped the game rather. What was a 20k race is now a 30k and they have added 4 lake swims and all manner of new brutal challenges, to counter charges that other events have out-brutalled them this year.
estimated time to complete is now 6-8 hrs, which is about twice the time I have ever been out on an event before.
To add to my woes, the race belt I ordered from Wiggle on wednesday with 24 hr express delivery to hold gels etc, has not turned up. That and the 600 mile round trip.
