And Dave and Martin - great. Such an epic weekend. Susan - you too. And I thin Wabo was racing, too.

Great time Martin, you can do it! and just after your birthday too. Nice present to yourself.

Scott, action photo for you. Are you scarily tall, or was it just my photo skills?

Thanks Howard!

Can I have a little Monday morning moan?  No, I'm not going to actually. The thread's on a high after an amazing PBtastic weekend so I'm going to bugger off.

Hope the post-marathon aches are lovely!

Ikle - it was 35 miles - with I think about 3,000ft of ascent and some challenging underfoot conditions. Prize for finding the biggest bog definitely goes to FRC! I was a girly wimp in a couple of bits and they gave me a hand jumping across some bits. I also threw a brick in one farmyard to gauge just how deep the slurry was before wading in - result - slurry splats on face - nice - not! It was a great day and I really enjoyed it - can definitely recommend the race.

Interestingly I was 20 mins down on my fastest previous time at the second checkpoint (at about 15 miles) but finished 12.5 mins quicker - a slow and steady start is definitely the way to go for ultras. Felt very slow in the first section but the benefit definitely pays off at the end - we kept passing people from the second checkpoint and no one came past us.

This was waiting for me at CP3! My friend Ray was marshalling there and I had jokingly asked if he'd have a chair for the runners to put their feet up there as there had been in previous years:

Nice running to all, went out at 6.45 and did a 9 mile trail run with my younger bro and enjoyed a burn up on the last mile home as starving hungry and passed a car boot setting up in Bakewell with the smell of bacon wafting over the field made us feel rather peckish. Great Ultra running too.....never run passed 26.2 though I have done a 32 mile walk in the Scottish Highlands......
What sort of mileage are you guys doing at the moment if not preparing for a race?

08/10/2012 at 11:34

mcs - trail run sounds good.  I;m preparing for late autumn marathon which is why I'm doing the big miles.  I usually tick over at about 25 miles a week when I dont have any specific race planned.

I have gone over 1000 miles this year incontrast to last year when I had some back issues. This year going well and hope to get nearer to 1500 miles training in though mileage is not everything. Anyone run up this way Derbyshire? I am in Bakewell area.....not got any races this year at the moment coming up......next year March, Coniston 14 and Grindleford Gallop hopefully..... Red Bull Challenge up our way this weekend looked good from the pictures I have seen.......but too fast for me, I would have been out at the first checkpoint.

mcs - WT is up your neck of the woods - I think she's done the Grindleford Gallop? I'm a bit further up North in Yorkshire.
