Hadrian's Wall Race Carlisle:Newcastle
Congratulations to Andy AFCB and Carl on some brilliant times.
Absolutely no doubt in my mind that you are capable of doing a 100 miler. You likely did this event about an hour quicker than me, and I have done two of them.
You would have to pace yourself differently. If you ran the first 69 miles at that pace you would run into trouble, but that is just the challenge that everybody faces with a 100.
Sorry to hear you had to abondon the race Ultra, nice they sorted you out tee-shit and medal.
I got around in 16:31 (127th place) which I was realy pleased with, got into Newcastle just past mid-night. It was a lot of road ! and these bridges seems to be moving further away from me.
Both my ankles are swollen badly today, what's the advise ? ice & ibuprofen ?
Ice and ibuprofen are both good.
What I usually do with a swollen ankle is just stick it in a bucket of ice water while I am watching the television.
Congratulations on the good time.
Well I was hit with blisters at around mile 10, due to waterlogged shoes, and it was a case of handling that and getting through, the campsite at Violanda put aside any thoughts of quitting, it was a stark choice, I would take the 37 miles rather have spent a night under canvas there.
I think I managed 20 hours and 20 minutes and felt like a zombie by the end, initial thoughts - never again, but I woke up in my hotel four hours later planning how to handle it different next time so life goes on. Well done to all who finished, looking back the biggest downpour for 20 years was not the greatest backdrop to an event that long.
I feel good today, due to the blistering I had to walk a large portion so no real leg or muscle pain, just minced feet
