can't wait to see your toenails...
we are heading to Scarborough in the morning and if you wait at Sheff Stn we could share a taxi home (might be half an hour though) could try having your phone on??? Hope you can hobble onto the plane tomorrow xxx

Jesus wept, what have you been doing?

sometimes I think I'd like to try an ultra. Then I have a stern word with myself and put it down to a fit of pique.

Well done, good story!

There's an experience. Well Done.

Thoughts about all that food before hand.
Either - finish your load up 36 - 24 hour before hand, so your guts get to settle.
Or - don't bother
you can carb load for 90+ worth of running at a high tempo race effort, so that doesn't get you far into a 15:30 run. You're going to be burning a lot of fats anyway and of the carbs you do burn the majority will have to be eaten on the run, start as you mean to go on ?
Plus not being carb loaded at the start could well mean you start a bit steadier.

Probably a good point. I think the previous week is probably the time to be loading up and maybe the final 24 hours not so important. Trouble is, when you're in Italy there are just so many temptations!
