SDW 50 might interest me, as a recce for the 100. Is it the first 50 of the route, do you know?

So hard not doing any running, I really am going to be climbing the walls in a few days...

I would love to do SDW50, what a shame it is in April though.  There's so many other things happening that month.  Ah well, 2014 it is.

Lou, I think you're right, the Barbie sandwich handbag is called for - having my PBJ /Marmite XO and Cheese wraps would have made all the difference.  One of these too:

A winebox in the shape of a handbag!  How classy

better run fast then coz i will be behind you.....  dont worry ... itll be quite a long way behind...

03/10/2012 at 17:10

We're due snow in a few weeks aparently so I'll definitely be using winter kit soon!

I feel rather radical ... I am not doing any Centurion events next year!!!

Lovely 10.5-miler this morning, felt fab which makes a change after fighting my way through training for the last few weeks!!

Racing - well not as such but I am doing an orienteering competition on Sunday morning so we'll see how that goes!

CC - WHW and UTMB should see you through the year for long races Good news on the training, it is nice when it comes together. Sometimes you just need to chip away for a little while. Have fun orienteering, if you want a laugh let me loose on one of them events I will fin hills and river crossings no other person can

Lou - You will be faster than you think I bet!

21 miles banked today, another 20 on the cards tomorrow that will put the last 7 days into the 90 miles bracket. Most I have done in a week of training I think.

orienteering sounds fun..and im probabely most likey to find my way by navigating via the shops i last left

03/10/2012 at 19:37

Had 2 days rest after Ladybower 50,So thought id ease back in to training.Did steady 2 mile run this morning ,before doing a 1000m swim,then a nice easy 22 miles on the bike this afternoon... As for racing,thinking of doing The Clumber 10K Trail Race on Saturday.Also cant decide weather to do the Dukeries Dusk to Dark 20 miler or The Round Rotherham 50 miler on the 20 OCT

lovely lovely run for me today but think my quads might not agree with me tomorrow! 'bout 7 miles with 650m of climbing - so actually it was a yomp onto the top - definitely not a run. Nice hill behind Glenmore (nr Aviemore for you Southerners!!) - Creagan Gorm and Meall a Bhuachaille. Lovely blue-sky day so I thought 'sod the jobs and the homework' ... so guess what I'll be doing tonight!  Great views though and a lovely dusting of snow on the top of the bigger 'gorms.

LLB - I have the Nathan vest and it is performing very nicely indeed!

04/10/2012 at 20:44

cragc when did you get the Nathan vest? i tried mine-its fab isnt it??? im in lurve

04/10/2012 at 21:46

Got it a week or so ago, have used it twice and I too am in lurve (cannot do that heart thingy!!). Only thing I am thinking is I might need a wee chest strap as it slightly slips on one shoulder ... despite my pilates teacher training I am obviously still lopsided!!! But I think it's absolutely brilliant - love not having anything round my waist and you barely know it's there and it's surprisingly creative for storage
