The Idle Banter non specific race ultra thread
Well did the round Coventry way 40 mile ultra yesterday. I managed 42 miles as took wrong turning and also spent another ten mins arsing around trying to work out where I was. So probably 30 mins lost in total. Finished 6th in 7.04, may have been closer to 6.30.
DE - have you had a virus you're struggling to bounce back from? Don't get disheartened at any rate. Keep going and you'll get back to strong performances.
Well done, spen71. Gutting about the 'diversion', especially if near the end.
Connemara 39.3 went well. A steady road race with very strong winds which probably added 10-15 minutes to my time, which was an average 6:27 for 119/193. Felt strong and only let one runner by in the last 20 miles, but overtook many.
Good run at the Woldsman 50 (51). Set off a bit fast, but first third is relatively flat and tempting, suffered a bit 20-25, meal at halfway but still suffering on harder next leg, a few choice nibbles and energy returned for the hilliest section. After which back to undulacting/flat and held on well for an 8.41 finish. Last time I ran here, admittedly a tougher day I was nearly two hours Slower. Good that the training paid off this month
cracking runs Spen and T Rex, especially considering unwelcome diversions and strong winds (respectively).
Cheers DE and TRex. Good runs by you pair.
Got a calf problem now and off to the fizz tomorrow. Already one week off. Hope it does not take too long to heal as only 15 weeks to LL100.
DE- good to see you going well
Spen- sounds like a good run, given the nav mishap....
SZ-????? Welcome back!!!
Just wanted to pick your collective brains- has anyone run the Compton 40? Thinking of doing it this weekend and just wondered if anyone had any info- trail shoes/roadies, frequency of aid stations etc.
I did it last year. Aid stations are every 6 or 7 miles. As it has been dry recently should think it would be ok in road shoes.
Thanks, spen Thinking of doing it as a last long run before ACP 100k in May
Anglo Celtic Plate - also National 100ks in Gravesend
