3 years on
3 yrs ago i was wondering if i could ever finish an ironman..........i had run 2 marathons over the previous 3/4 years.......both slower than 4:30 hrs
3 years on and a couple of ironman done....9 ultras and numerous marathons and a DIM.........I have smashed my PB's at running at all distances ......and ran sub 4 marathon............goingh longer has helped all my shorter distance times..
now have to decide where to go next................there are so many brilliant races in this country at so many distances...........
how do you decide in what direction to go..............i need to keep on chamging my focus to keep motivated.........
2 weeks resting post race and my mind is still trying to find its next challenge.....
Mountain marathons are something I would like to do Seren. Where you carry your pack etc. They look tough but good
Either that or doing a Lands End to John O'Groats bike ride
Or more mountain biking
Fred Whitton sportive next year?
Where and when is that LN?
would love to do lejog Rio.on the list but want to do ikt with my OH so a 3 year wait for that...........is the mountain marathons where you cary your tent etc..........might be costly to get lightweight sleeping bags etc...........
LN.......what is special about the fred whitton
Yes those are the ones Seren. I reckon you can pick up a decent lightweight Vango for £100 (or less depending on time of year). Sleeping bag would probably be as much if not more but you could improvise using foil blankets etc.
Again its one of those things once you have them you have them. And as the tents sleep 2 you could share with someone at events I am sure
Fred Whitton is in Cumbria.
Pretty elevation map
i thought you had to blow a didgeridoo
Women can't blow didgeridoos... tis true
Oh here's the link to the sportive
that looks a lovely route LN.........done the lakeland 50 around part of that..lovely
I think I am going to be doing much more off road stuff as "The Bitch" wants to do off road races too
Seren - I think you and I have different definitions of the word lovely but here's another clip for you. You may get vertigo from the camera action though!
Those ups look horrible but so worth it for the downs
