100 mile point to point run from Richmond to Oxford
K.P. toes not bad was a bit painful during but I havent made it worse I dont think.
What I have done is irritate my sciatic nerve, however a sports therapist I met during the 10 in 10 has sent me a nice long list of exercises to do so hopefully I will be back running soon. I plan to swim only this week as I guess I did exert myself a bit on Sunday
Hello everybody There are loads of posts since I came last. Ultra threads are normally dead quiet!
Are you the person that did the challenge hub 50? If so, i did their 24 hr challenge in May. How did you get on? If that wasn't you, ignore me!!
I'd never run further than 30 miles before it (which was just in my training) I loved it.
I thought Mike has it really well organised too.
Sorry to hear about your injuries. Keep going with the exercises...and probably very sensible heading to the pool this week after Sunday!
hi people, wow this thread is really taking off now,
my foot is still hurting so am going to to just let it heal fully before getting going again just want to run.
Veggie, sounds like you built it up nicely then. Don't think I'll be able to sustain that level of mileage this time round - maybe if I do another one afterwards...
Glad your toe is doing well AJH - just exerted yourself a bit! Enjoy the swimming.
Hope your foot heals quickly Andy.
I'm going to work on devising my training plan next week. I think I'll be mixing a few plans together and fitting them in with my shifts. Hopefully I'll come up with something sensible that will work I expect I'll have to be fairly flexible with it anyway as I've never done it before.
Flexibility is the key
Don't come up with something so presciptive that you end up beating yourself up if you miss a session or family stuff gets in the way
Plenty of months yet
I'm in, so hopefully the forum will stay nice and busy and we can all chip in to help each other when training gets tough. Hopefully see you all at the start and finish line.
Cheers for the help so far.
You mention the snow. Last year when the snow was really bad, my other half saw me getting my bike gear ready for the next morning and said "don't be stupid, you can't possibly cycle 15 miles to work in this weather, you'll have to run instead"
It was funny at the time, and even funnier whenever I look back on it
I love running in the snow. Did the first 30 miles in Dec last year heading down the Thames Path from Richmond with a good covering of snow
Hmm, I think that's my biggest fear..snow! I have run in snow before, but only short training runs. Would you wear trail shoes for snow for better grip?.
Mr F, that sounds horrendous!! I agree it'd be great to see pics. Hope yr knee recovers soon!
Chris, glad you managed to persuade her. Did you go for the wine option in the end?
Veggie, I can't imagine running 30 miles in snow> Think if it snows, it'll be game over for me.
