3 hours purple! good going, i wont be hitting that sort of mileage for a good few weeks yet,

I was thinking of doing a double training thread since the "something slightly different thread to last year " thread has lost a lot of people and doesnt really motivate me as much as it used to (come back marshallini and steve ho and OC has his knee probs,) my thinking was if i logged my training (you and q could also post if you wanted to) on a thread i would be more inclined to do the bigger sessions - people seeing that im slacking is a great motivator

anyone doing a double in future would have a guide of what (not) to do.

Good decision Purple - you would hate watching I'm sure. My much smaller training plan for the half is all systems go for next week. I've just bought some sealskin gloves to cut out another excuse for avoiding rain. For me its not a time issue, just a HTFU one. And I'm only doing a quarter of what you nutters (sorry I mean heroes) are doing. 

Happy 2013 all.

I can now say I'm thinking of the double for next year

Happy training. Get with it Purple and think about your feeding/nutrition strategy. Just what I heard people speaking about and some of your own comments you didn't seem to get this right this year. I think you took to drinking a lot of coke but not eating much so that may need looking at. Fair play I'm routing for you this year from afar.

DK I'm looking forward to reading the next few months of your journey. I loved reading Serens exploits last year leading upto the day and watching her face upto the demons on the run section on the day ( well the bits i saw as I ran around the course!! ). It was all inspiring stuff.

Only 5 months to go folks

soupy... the half is going to be a lovey race....my advise is if its wet just get out there.as the enduroman team seem to like organising rain for the event 

I am looking forward to this race,,,,,,,,,,,I'm really hoping I can race it and not do it as a training session

Yeh, thats what I figured Seren with the rain. I'm really looking forward to this though. Sorry you won't be making it SA, not tempted with the Half though?

so 7 weeks or so to go - how is everyones training going?

Will be there to support, not compete this year. Looking at the continuous Deca next year though

I've ordered 20 degree sunshine and no wind or rain for this year..

 

18/04/2013 at 14:23

Also - has everyone seen the updated start times?

Have you admitted to that one on the other side as yet or just going about it in a round about way??? ( ie 100 mile runs later this year!! )

I am a possible for the double next year. Have had the chat and I think I'll be ok with it. Just need to get my support crew in order.

Loved it last year but working that weekend this year and it is a long way from where I live so its a no show this time.

Doner how's it going??

Crikey this is getting close now. Do I need to book camping or do I just turn up? I suppose I could look at the web site but cba right now.

what training? tbh i have done a few long swims upto 6.6k but my biking is sadly lacking, i havent even gone over 50 miles this year yet. My take on the running is that after blagging a 232 mile bike ride im going to be walking most of it anyway so i dont need to train in that area. Man flu for the last 2 weeks has left me unable to train although i have just started back with a couple of short runs. 

i got 42 days left to train yet - thatll be plenty - over the next 4 weeks i got 4 long bikes planned including a night ride and a few long runs so i'll be ok, my target of sub 30 hours aint going to happen so im just in it for the laugh and to complete as i dont want to push too hard if im not going to get sub 30 as i got the SDW100 a couple of weeks after and i really want to finish that 

 

    42 days soupy
