Two more nights to go

Two nights sleep left before this here first Ultra trail race of mine.

I did have a taper plan for this week:-

But as you can see from the bright red which indicates an incomplete or simple not done session, I've done nothing since the 15K on Sunday.  But, you know what?  It really doesn't matter at this point.  Yes, it'd be ideal if I kept things ticking over gently, mainly from a neuro-muscular point of view, but there are no performance or endurance gains to be had in a taper week.  What I could have had a bit better grip on is rest, good quality and plentiful sleep, and keeping eating sensibly.  Even so, that's not the end of the world either.

I do need to make sure I have the route plumbed into my phone and Garmin as that's one of the two unknowns for Saturday, so as long as I do that I'll be fine.

Packing list is in final draft at the moment:-
I'm aiming for maximum comfort and options will be carried by Mr TOTKat for dry changes of socks, shoes etc.
