The Idle Banter non specific race ultra thread
Right no more local produce for me
I like a flaggon when I'm flaggin
Km for motivation, good thinking. I do like being in a minority too... no corrie, saturday morning tv, reality tv or other such nonsense enters my spectrum of vision or thought.
Cycling isn't quite doing it for me, too many cars, junctions to stop for and better cyclists on good bikes showing me up. Looks so much more fun for the Tour de France boys. Couldn't see myself doing it more than a few days a week There's a few local kayak clubs, might try and learn that
This thread is feeling quite exclusive right now
Thanks for all these shoe recommendfations, Fellrunner. On the strength of your recommending NB875s in the past I've ordered some 876s. Those Walshes look good.
Don't know about you but I've certainly had a case of BROKEN SPECTACLES on one outing I had.
indeed de..an ultra exec club of 3 with the occasional dino popping in
with you on the cycling..enjoy it for an hour for a change but nothing more..and dislike them on the open moors etc..bunch of hoolies
and yes..zig when others zag..it all started living near sunderland in 1973 when i started suporting chelsea..loved being the black sheep...then when everyone at uni was into indie i was into rock...and so it goes on..hows the injury?
rexy..were you a little tipsy when you posted???
Yes, sorry for that extraneous "f" - most unlike me.
I was setting off down a hill once and fell down a hole that wasn't covered for some reason. It was about 5' deep and had all water pipes and taps at the bottom. I crashed my chest heavily onto the opposite rim of the hole, probably cracking my sternum, and I never saw my specs again.
you'd make a great should have gone to specsavers ad t rex..are you coing norf for the hp40?
hiya bp..that was a long celebration inn scotland you seemed to have had
what's your plans now?
wow..thats some line up..hope you like sand
we're just finishing off now having done our main ones for 2010 - the c2c and lakeland 50 (you should try that next year)..so just another lakes outing, hp40 and a few fell races
then i think we'll be gearing up for the utld100 next july..eek
wow - looks exciting! I'm really keen to do another lake district event next year as i've not been up at all in 2010. Maybe another bash at Saunders.
Yes sand is going to be a big issue! I'm trying to plan some training weekends down at Camber to get some sand training in...not quite the sahara though hey!!
Hi Bp, all still going well for ACC? I'm camped out here now as defaintely ruled out of that one due to a busted leg which I'm boring all and sundry about. I like to think I'd try most things but MdS somehow doesn't appeal, I think I'd prefer the Artic circle Mara or something.....
..... in steps FR with suggestion of an multi-day ultra in the arctic circle???
Oh no - sorry to hear about the leg DE - hope you are on the mend. Injury is just horribly frustrating- I am terrible when I can't run. Hang in there.
I think one MdS will definitely be enough for me. I've discovered so many amazing events in the UK since I got into this insane business I thnk there is enough here to keep me occupied in the future - love the sound of the Eagle Isle ultra and maybe even MoB.
Getting prepd for ACC- have a marathon next weekend so taking it a bit easy this bank holiday. Just off to watch Blackheath RC warm up with a pre season game - watching people running about is good exercise I find!
Eagle isle ultra and MOB (or whatever it's called now) look great. I nearly entered a 5 day stage race on Jura and Isley going back a few years. So glad I didn't now, it would have killed me back then.
I had been been planning to enter the UTMB next year - may have a read of the reports around this years stop-start event before comitting now though. Seems some people think the organisers were spot on and others quite the opposite
