Croydon Ultra 2012
One more entrant coming up soon, how's it going
Hya Lou, I'm going to put my name down because I cannot find a decent marathon in July other than Isle of Man, and getting time away is not good for that one. The Croydon sounds really good but it will be only a fortnight after finishing the Wall, and doing 70 miles which is further than I ever thought I would do, might mean I can't manage do it, time will tell.
Judging by the previous Ultra I think I went throught the 30 mile mark in 5:21 so I'd expect maybe a few mins ahead of that if I can recover, time's not the important thing for me, it's about getting through it this year, still on for 12 in 12 I have Manchester this sunday and Sunderland the next with Dukeries 30 miler coming up.
When's your next event? sounds like your piling the miles on
the guy that came 2nd at Llanelli ultra was one of the ones i ran with on saturday at forest of Dean.
Howdy folks - well, I survived Paris in one piece, so this will be my next race. There's the little matter of running from Inverness to Kyle of Lochalsh next month, but that's a holiday, not a race, so it doesn't count (and it takes a week).
I really need to have a proper look at the route for this one - I'm hoping to have a look round and maybe run some bits of it before the big day. Navigation isn't my strong point, so I'm going to need all the help I can get if I'm not going to end up running twice the distance.
The other challenge is to work out a nutrition strategy - there's no way I'm running 30 miles fuelled only by Shotbloks, so I need to work out what 'real food' works for me. So far I'm thinking malt loaf and pretzels, but it's a work in progress.
RR, i like pretzels too, the salt helps. malt loaf works too for me, as does, choccy, FGS on the go,jaffa cakes and peanut butter sarnie. im not great on navigation either. what time are you aiming for at Croydon?
Seven weeks to go so if you have not entered then please get your entries in. Looking forward to seeing you all at the start line.
