The Idle Banter non specific race ultra thread
only in my car for a couple hours kip before venturing home
ran into work this morning and with yesterdays two hardish sessions i think i felt my c2c legs..at one point i was thinking no to the 50 but by the end had talked myself round..feel tired though mind
Ha ha, cheers FR! Unfortunately, don't think there's much chance I'll get my descending together in a couple of weeks. Been trying for years!!
I reckon 18 hours! But I won't put any tenners on it.
What's SNOD anyway?
SZ like Cd says the road book is your best ally in fact it is pretty concise and clear to follow.
CD are you tired or is it that you have ahieved your goal and now going through a period of Anti-Climax as a result of the void you now appear to be faced with.
I know from my own experiences of actually enjoying life in my own way and away from everday constraints, that once I am back in the real world it takes quite a while for me to realign my mindset during which time I can feel mentally and pyhsically drained , but once I have set and started planingmy next escape then things start to come so called right again, and the sense of lethargy dissipates.
TJ that was a good group at Osmo, worked together well with some good Banter, did most of you finish together?
SNOD is an affectionate abbreviation of the Snowdonia Marathon and it came about over several years,with a bunch of regular posters doing just that, posting on everthing you could imagine, then a few of us got caught up on the Ultra merry go round and many a happy hour has been wasted posting on Ultra related things plus many things that probably bear no relation to anything, but all good fun.
So I have Carried the SNOD handle over to the ULTRA Forum in the hope that the Banter,Nonsense and often interesting ULTRA discussion will continue with the old hands and hopefully appeal to new folk to broaden our horizons and highlight new ultra`s and training methods, Kit etc mixed in with fresh idle banter and silliness but without intimidating and confusing the often new marathon / road runners on the original SNOD MARATHON thread.
Will it work who Knows but it up to you guys
im up for a single thread for me that covers the whole kittenkaboodle..im currently on 3 and it takes too much time..plus some of the same people are on them all
good point fr..have to agree..the worst bit was hitting an A road travelling home and RHB night was strange..a kinda of 'so whats next?'
looking for our next 'outing' but will be shorter/lower key as cant get the time off etc
Kit-an kaboodlle not heard that for a while where did it originate I wonder?
CD i reckon it is the constraints on time that that motivate me with the ultra`s i.e. if I want to cover a 30, 50 or 100 miles and I can`t get time off to do it then it makes sense to go out and do it in one hit, well it does for me anyway and the time I spend running is my way of relaxing and has become my quality me time.
What`s Charlie Reckon?
SZ I have not looked at the results but are you Alphabetically inferior to the youngster?
It has been interesting watching the Numbers that have signed up for the Lakeland 100 dwindle over the last few weeks, with the numbers for the 50 increasing, another thing I notice is that there are more Females signed up for the 100 than for the 50.
I also notice There is a MIMI ANDERSON signed up for the Lakeland 50 now am I right in thinking there can only be one MIMI ANDERSON ultra runner i.e. the Holder of several records including GUC 2010 and world record holder Fastest lady For the JOGLE + many others, if so i am suprised she has opted for the 50 rather than the 100.
oop`s Guvnor`s just walked in catch you later
Yep Guvnor caught me innocently downloading files from repro to press for todays production, so no worries
Good solution SP such is the laid back Osmo event, however a simple = against the time and placings would seem to be a nice little touch.
Anybody else find the Lower Locker Farm sheepdogs to be on good form? I reckon those dogs look forward to the race as much as we do.
Yes, the wildlife certainly gave an extra little adrenaline buzz to the event. Definitely didn't like those dogs!!
FR - our group dwindled to 4, then the american lass decided to have a sit down at the last CP, so then 3 of us finished all together. Aye, I suppose an = next to the names would have been nice, as I've drawn the short straw too and been positioned last out of us. But to be fair, I was the crappest runner on the day, the other 2 would have been quicker without me.
Lakeland 50 entry in on Tuesday, only to find that one of our club runners has dropped out, and I 'may' have been able to transfer and save a few dollars.
Just a quick GOOD LUCK to............................. EUPH ...........................at Wasdale on Saturday (tis a Cracker)
Hope you make the right shoe choice
Weather not to bad maybe a tad breezey :- Weather for the Lakes
That`s me off to play now, have a good un all
I reckon that Lower Lock farmer was sitting in an up turned wheelbarrow sipping home brewed 'sheep dip' laughing his turned down wellies off at runner after runeer getting harrased by those mutts.
I hope EUPH had a good day at WASDALE was a cracking day with zero visibility and horizontal ran and very humid, a typical summers day on the fells really.
I Guess you have all been stacking up the miles over the weekend
All in all a splendidly wet weekend, vastly improved underfoot conditions, but it has not really done a lot for the resovoirs.
Managed to screw up an abductor muscle, which will need a bit of excercising to sort it before the Lakeland 100 in two weeks no worries.
Tried all my Lakeland 100 kit at weekend and am well happy with my choices particulary the OMM-i- -DRATE 12 ltr sac, for me it is asuperbly well thought out bit of kit and is just so comfortabele to wear, and the idea of the Bladder being carried away from your back, thus keeping the fluid it contains cooler is a master stroke IMO, tis also nice to see how much is left in it without the need to open the sac up as well
I am now looking for another decent long run for the Autumn, the Hardmoors is inviting but I really can`t be arsed with all that support crew palaver.
Right best get some work done I guess
