Wow, looks excellent.

Well I don't know if I have mentioned this before but I am just reading feet in the clouds and people really do run down....

I mostly swear lots all the way & find things to bump into to slow down.

Sticking a few Toblerones on your shoes helps too.

But i don't do really scary ones.

Off to walk the Pembrokeshire Coast Path with my Mum next week. This means i'm carying all the tent!

Duck Girl - A guy called colin watts off the forum ran that back in may - i think his website is

his report is quite good!

Having read feet in the clouds I've concluded I'm not quite bonkers enough to try fell running yet. Just as well there aren't many fells in Berkshire.

I could see myself going head over heels if I tried it. Do people wear crash helmets?
11/08/2006 at 13:50
cool, i look forward to it.

have to admit I am slightly concerned that I'm doing a 50k on Sunday and have only done 1 long run of late which was TLD
11/08/2006 at 14:03
but then I had done 0 long runs in the month before TLD so this should be a doddle!

over on events, it's on page 1, called Boddington 50k. target time is sub 5 hours - which would be roughly my TLD pace, I was told that 5:15 was too soft a target.

Haven't decided if I will walk any of it yet. Would prefer not to - my last 2 maras have needed walk breaks, usually so I could be sick!

Cheers, keep up your Abingdon training.

Went to Tri Club yesterday for the first time since TLD, wearing my race T-shirt.

Was early, only person around was the swimming coach who is very nice, but a Proper Yorkshire Bloke.

[coach reads my t-shirt]
'So - did you do the Black Country ironman then, Duck?'
'Yes - came 3rd'
'so what's your race bike like then?'
[points] 'That's my race bike'
[my bike by now having its pannier rack, bell, lights, artistic mud smears, & other Scruffy Stuff reattached]
'Oh. Well done'.

I'd almost say he looked surprised, were such a thing possible.

obviously it takes a lot for the coaches chin to drop.
