Just absolutely p*ssed it down here in rural Lincolnshire - hope you you can dodge the clouds Mr F

Looks like it's going to rain here too - will try to time run to go out in it!

Montane jacket packed, bring it on! Being dropped 18m from home so at least that to get back, a bit more with some XC deviations. Just had a downpour so clear blue skies now!

Just about to head out for a run as well. Is 36 degrees here! Very humid. About to rain but don't think jacket will be needed. Longest run in last 2 weeks is 5 miles so will try 6 tonight! So much for ultras!

Enjoy the 18miles mr F. Nothing like a bit of incentive.

Have a good one Mr F - I'm jealous.

Where are you hillheader?

Hi Rich.

Morning all,

Hope you're all well.    Well done on your night adventure Andy, sounds great.  Glad you had a good walk too Vixx.  Hope all the injuries are improving AJH and Rich.  Where are you Hillheader - I definitely wouldn't like training in temperatures like that. 

Hope you have a good run Mr F.  The rain clouds are gathering here.  A steady 12miles for me yesteday with a swim this morning and got a 10k race tonight.  I'll start to focus my atention on this race from August.

Feeling very frustrated - training was going superbly for my UltraRace Peak in August. Had a cracking 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago and should have done the sensible thing and had a couple of days off - but, oh no, just couldn't help myself and now I haven't done much for 2 weeks - and my plan was to start upping the mileage through July.

Having said that I did do 2 or 3 runs over 20miles in hopefully a decent base is there.

I'm just not very patient with my body but at 46, I think I have to learn to be

Still haven't signed up for this one - not sure whether to just enter or discuss with wife first - both carry risks

I understand the frustrations rich. 46 is not old! Im same age. 2 marathons and 3 ultras so far this year. You should have a good base but don't push it.

Buckets of sweat today. In Thailand for work so hot. Off to Alaska in 4 weeks time so might be a bit cooler.

I'm waiting for right moment to tell wife. Watching the list fill up though so better do it soon?

Enjoy the race KP

8 hilly miles done for me - a combo of trail, road, run, walk, sun, rain
06/07/2011 at 14:25
19.6m, awesome run! A good percentage on trails and foot path , beaming sunshine, torrential rain! No fast pace, just a case of plodding out the miles. Felt food considering I got through 2 litres of squash and a couple of oatcake biscuits.

Guys, I feel old and I'm only 32! Hope I'm still as for as you at 46!!
Good running vixx!

I'm 34 - will be 35 when this comes around!
06/07/2011 at 16:05

Well, after much faffing about I've now entered. First 100 miler. got nearly a year to prepare, so hopefully i'll be able to do it!

06/07/2011 at 16:08
Hi Jellybaby - it's my first 100 too
06/07/2011 at 16:09

Nice run, Mr F - sounds great. Where are you?

Jellybaby - you're braver than me - I'm still pontificating - and that is today's unnecessarily long word

06/07/2011 at 16:11
rich, I'm in sunny warwickshire just outside leamington spa if you know it?

So, who has actually done a ton before and is brave enough to enter a second? Or are we all virgins?!
06/07/2011 at 16:21
You aren't that far from me Mr F!
