Last run complete last night... Looking forward to tomorrow

Not looking forward to tomorrow at the moment - feel completely knackered! Hopefully it's just a reflection of nerves and 3 days no exercise. Not in the ideal mental place at the moment

At least the forecast says dry tomorrow But then raining Sunday morning, early Could always be wrong though...

Rain I can live with - strong winds I hate as they really sap your energy

It is also forecast to be relatively mild which should mean not too many layers even during the night

Quick kit question - is it worth packing waterproof trousers? I've never run in them, and I can't find them - so I'm thinking no... Any views?

19/10/2012 at 15:51

if you can't find them, don't pack them

I'm taking mine in case I get reduced to a shambling walk in freezing rain. In all other cases not worth it

Anyone feeling positive?

19/10/2012 at 16:21

Yep ... Will see how long for though!

Drinking the night before a race are we?

Just enough to numb the pain...

Interesting - given the choice I'd take wind over rain. Living in flat Lincs, I'm use to the wind - there's no shelter once it's blowing. Rain - yuk!

Positive - not yet!!

good luck to you all (runners & organisers) I ran this in 2008 with a mate who is no longer with us, just remenising now of how scared we were but boy how we enjoyed it, remember the pain is only whilst the race is on but the memories last a lifetime. have a great weekend hope you all acheive your goals.

Will join fat paul in that one.  Good luck to all running this weekend.  Should have been with you all but alas injury got in the way.  The wife is still running and so if you see a chick in purple compression calf guards then please tell her to get a move on   There is lots of great support going to be there and so hope that is enough to get you all through.

I hope WiB managed to get through with a decent time and the win.  And all the best to veggieboy and others through the night.  It wasn't as mucky as we were expecting but after several laps and the (current) rain, I wouldnt want to be out there!

Had to pull put after the second lap as the scar was being pulled and getting increasinlgy painful.  Bit frustrating but expected.

Daz - after that first 20 in 2:35 it was a bit of suffering til they end. The first half of the course stayed good but 2nd half churned up a fair bit after 3 or 4 laps. Not much slower but bit harder work, especially under torch light. The blokes and girls still turning in laps are superstars!
Hope you are patched up soon mate.

Binned it at 50 miles in 11:58 which was bang on my schedule

Unfortunately I got uncontrollable shivers and had to head back just after setting out on 6th lap

Think I got my nutrition wrong and caught out by the rain which I didn't recover wrong

2nd half of the course really churned up

Hardest 50 miles I've ever run

Need to go back next year

Just my second ultra. Wow. That was a bit different. Finished the 50 in about 15:30.

I sprained my ankle on mile 15 and managed to carry on. Should I go to A& E or just ice it? 

The last lap was very lonely.

Sian we ran together for 3.5 laps, let me know how you got on. I hope the leg is okay, sorry I had to go but I was begining to freeze.

Don't worry Ian and I are still talking. He stayed to the end and even picked up my dirty socks .
