Gallop or stagger?
Frodo - 21 miles is what I had too. I had in mind that it should be21.7 miles but can't remember why just now.
TBH - having walked so much, I haven't really suffered with DOMS. In fact I ran the line for the second half of my son's footy game on Sunday without any bother. It seems a far cry from the suffering & anguish of last Thursday.
Really enjoyed this, more so than last year. The conditions where perfect.
It's got to be my favorite race, fantastic and challenging course.
I thought I was going to break 3hours at one point... oh well gives me something to aim for next year!
Shaun - although I was way down the field after you I reckon the last 5 miles (up to & along the Edges) are a really strong test for anyone's intended finishing time.
As you say, the whole of the course is challenging. I dunno whether it's better to push it along the Monsal Trail or hold back a little. As for the climb to Ballcross Farm!
All the Best for next year's attempt .
