Dude - on the waiting list as well. Not sure what I have let myself in for.
I love inspires too but didn't do well with the wave ascends, find it hard to find enough off road stretches to train on to be honest.
you've let yourself in for a really fun day out.
right. i might stick with what I've got. they are slightly flimsy but have done the job and are very snug.
woo hoo Elspeth, looking forward to meeting you
Hooray Elspeth .
New pair of Flyroc's coming for me soon .
Yay Elspeth! At last
well, 5 weeks now since my last meaningful run due to a knee injury. Only a couple of 5 mile runs under my belt in the last week. Starting to get nervous.
bummer. what's the long term outlook knee wise?
still lots of time mate.
if it makes you feel any better my training has been 'relaxed' shall we say. ever day is a recovery run.
I agree with all of above, I wouldn't start panicing yet ... when I first did this in 2011, I didn't do any 'meaningful' long runs until the New Year - by that I mean anything over 12 miles - and got round just fine on the day, well within the timescales. Within the proper training period from Jan-April I had time out with a horrific cold and several niggles. So DON'T PANIC!!! I have also been doing 'relaxed' training - I like that term
Thanks for all the messages of suport. Unfortunetly, i went out for a quick 5 mile trail run on Sunday and seem to have agrivated the knee. Will give it a wee rest over the next few days (sitting on sofa, having a few beers and choccy). Have a good Christmas everyone.
ahoy. how are you all faring now?
i'm very......fat. but apart from that running ok.
I was just thinking about this race!
Really looking forward to it, looks like there are some fast runners entered. I have a 100 in a couple of weeks but The Fling will get my full attention after that.
tda - Plenty of time to hit racing weight yet
oddly i'm moving ok considering. which means that (when/if) i shift 8 lbs or so, i should be looking good. That's the theory
ive not been unhealthy. it's just we had the in-laws staying and wor lass's mum is an amazing cook.
glad to hear you are all geared up for it. WiB - what's the 100?
20miler. looking good Andy. is this your first fling?
TP100 first for me..... in less than 4 weeks !!!
I guess the Fling is going to be even more of a stagger this year for me than it usually is . Preparing to come last and enjoy the views!!!!
I have just seen the facebook post about drop bags. I guess it is just a case of sticking your number and the aid station to go to on them?
To be honest I will probably not use the drop bag option unless it is just to have a couple of extra gels available in the 2nd half.
Good luck at TP100
Thanks WiB . Looking forward to it now the river levels have dropped, wasnt looking forward to wading / big diversions!
Yep - drop bags just need your number and station. They usually have four cars at the start - boot open - one going to each separate station, so none of the bags get mixed up.
