I went for a 64km test run yesterday.  It all went pretty good although it was a flat course I learnt a bit more on how to tackle the TNF100.  It took me about 7 hours and 40 minutes.  My tendinitis in my foot held up OK although my legs got a good pounding on the concrete and bitumen.  I think the trick is to go out slow and don't be pressured into too fast a pace by other competitors and the excitement. Although I was not 100% with my time yesterday I still had energy left to keep on going.
Another thing I worked out is what sort of food I am going to carry. I have decided on a mix of sweet energy bars and salty/savoury snacks such as pretzels. For drinking I will just carry water and have energy drinks at the checkpoints. At the manned checkpoints I will fill up with coffee and coke.
So now I am in training wrap up mode with some medium length runs this week and next and then just some small workouts in the last week.
I have all my equipment now and can fit it quite easily in my M.U.L.E., which has a 10 litre carrying capacity + 3 litres of water.
