I'm over most of it, at least as fit as I was at NDW and the achilles is much better.  On a hard week, lakes, then sprint tri, so will prob be knackered come mid Sep

Just had a biopsy on my forearm and told not to do anything that requires figorous moevent (lol) for a week so hiking it will be.  

How are you btw - better off the L100?  I will be picking your brains on that at CC.

If you are in the lakes then you can get a lot of quality hiking in!

I am much better now, I was not in a good way after that really. Not sure what the problem was but it wrote me of for NDW too. Back in full training now, very excited about CC, ask away mate. Are you going for it in 2013? I am going to d othe 50.

By the sounds of things it may be full by the time I decide to enter.  Just how tough is the 100?  Compared to say the BGR, CC100

If you learn the course it becomes an easier challenge. It is hard on your feet but overall I wouldnt say it beats you up too much if you approach it correctly. Definitely a harder course than CC100 though.

I have had people tell me it is harder than a BGR purely for the extra distance and the underfoot being rougher. Others says BGR is hard as you climb more in less distance.

I did it as my first 100 and finished ok on what I would consider now to be below adequate training for it.

Less than 3 weeks... Everyone getting set?

Daz, are you feeling fast? Got some lead socks here if you care to wear them!

Not ready yet, got a big week this week.

Spent all last week doing daily hill reps

Have got a beautiful new merino wool base layer though and some new waterproofs

Are we heading for bad weather?

I guess if you are doing the 100 will make good use of it through the night. Doing the 50 will get away without going through the night.

Doing the 100

I have always found that looking good covers all manner of poor running technique!

WiB

Agreed!

i better get a recce run in, and set some snares for WiB

WiB

Snares?! I am capable of derailing my race all by myself Daz! Seriously though, I am very much looking forward to this one. Its going to be a fun day.

I might recce it, I have a couple of days off work tomorrow and Thur. I need to leave a trail of shot bloks like bread crumbs, not sure they will last through to the end of the month if I put them out this week though.

I'd join you mate, but busy until at least the weekend.  I might go down either next tue or wed.  don't know about you but im looking forward to that course.  diff this time is i go into the race with 3 big toe nails already missing, so dont have to worry about losing any more

WiB

I am very much looking forward to it mate. Not long to wait now fortunately!

I'm giving this another go too - it most definitely is a toe nail remover - last year i think I kicked the same rock every lap!

03/10/2012 at 08:44

I'm looking forward to this year's playlist!

I particularly remember Henk's inspirational words at the start:

"F*ck off, w*nkers......."
