share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
MK is the flattest run I've ever done, but I live in north hampshire between the north downs and the south downs. Just one large lap (no out and back).
I need a new headtorch. Hmmmm, will a slow cooked beef casserole do the trick?
ok,,,,,think I'm convinced. February it is! Pilgrims challenge....or maybe the Punchbowl 30. i've done the 20 and loved that. But my navigation skills are notorious.
I did the South Downs marathon.....not so flat. Gorgeous round there.
I haven't got a head torch........is this something for Father Christmas to help me with? I best get cooking then
daisyDD, is the punchbowl near Hindhead?
that's the one.
ooo punchbowl looks nice....could do it as a recovery bimble after thames trot 50
ooo yes and the cyril bean..or was it Brown ...40mile challenge next april
it's a LDWA one, so no marshalls. But it's a great run. Did the 20 m in the snow one year, had beans and chips at the end, all for £6.50 or something.
oh my...for 30 miles to be a bimble!
sounds a nice one Ddd
Rocker, it is absolutely beautiful around there tho...
Karen: also good schedules if you look for Ultraladies 50K training schedule and Ultraladies 50M training schedule. And Run for the Toad 50K - to show you how different schedules can vary from one another and still work.
For me the key has been back-to-back long runs - not every weekend, but staring every other weekend then maybe two out of three.
Daisy: Alpkit Gamma is a great head torch and not too expensive - £15 at the moment I think.
Sounds like some good running mate Keep up the good work... everything learns eventually!
