New trail race
Just read Daz's race report - inspiring stuff! I have entered the 50 & hope to do a recce sometime. Thanks for the garmin connect link )
Only done 1 ultra (Marlborough) so a bit daunted but excited at the same time. I'm also pleased at the looped course as hopefully I wont get lost like at Marlborough!
1st run of many run over Caesars Camp tonight...looking very nice. No Country Western music thou - maybe next time I`ll take the ipod.
Noticed this thread has slipped a couple of pages back! This race is next up for me... 8 weeks to go I think? How is everyone going?
Looking forward to it mate. You feeling better after the Lakes?
back running again now... 8 weeks to get myself sorted! Going to throw in a few track sessions to see if I can be fast enough to keep up You must fancy a shot at the CR after NDW? Looked like you were going well through Box Hill.
Got through Midnight Man IM race at the weekend OK. Am off camping now for the long weekend before trying to turn myself back into a long distance runner
Only 8 1/2 weeks to go !
WiB, yes I was a bit disappointed with the outcome but not my overall performance/time, considering circumstances. Glad you're getting back into it.
It was a good run Daz. Keep yourself fit for Caesars and will be in for fast one!
VB - 8 1/2 weeks sounds better. I will make the most of those extra coupel of days
Did a recce a few weeks ago - OMG! Hope to get another few in before the main event - excited but bricking it all at the same time!
Covered 10 miles over Caesars on Sunday, and loved it. Didn't quite follow the course, but covered most of the same ground. For guidance does the course follow the gravelled paths, or go through more of the single track?
Note of caution for the cow-nervous - they're in the woods at he moment, if you go off the wider paths you might come across a small herd on the single track! (and then cr@p your pants and run away - like I did )
kicked off the plan with a steady 10 miler this morning with a couple more to do tonight
Bit of both from memory pmo. More gravel/rock early on then onto some forest and single track. I like the forest section of the lap.
Might pop down for a run around there before the race but its marked well enough so I wouldn't say it is necessary.
Are you in for the 50 or 100 VB?
In for the 100 - will be aiming for 27:59:59 but judging on previous year's results that may be a push
The main thing is to make sure you don't go too fast for the first laps - sounds obvious I suppose, but it can often turn round and bite you in the bum later on if you don't.....unless you're Daz of course
and there was me hoping he wuold be jogging around this time
Lol never mate!
Well that's my race plan out the window! I best get training... Have you recovered ok after Cotswold/NDW?
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
Good news mate... enjoy the Lakes!
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.
