share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
have been reading some runners race reports from ' ultratales '-some really fantastic write ups and handy for people running any of them in future. im taking careful note of peoples comments regarding Ridgeway85
DAYTREKKER - Why do I perceive a veiled threat in that kind invitation? Love to pal, let me know when you have in mind and I and my 18 month old bike will be in attendance ready to take it into double digits for miles covered (shameful, I know).
I have never heard of him Kelvyn, had a look on the site and was unable to see any info on his coaching or prices. I can tell you that coaching has helped my running for sure and I would say it is well worth doing, take a look around first and ensure you get one that has experience of ultra running/coaching. I did see that mentioned on the site whilst looking through. Have fun
Oh... and which race have you entered?
Hi Kelvyn & how exciting having a 40 miler coming up! I've previously used the MD and for a 12 week plan I can certainly recommend him. However, I have found his plans to become very predictive after that (even though I stayed with him for over a year). Also just bear in mind the time difference, which can sometimes make obtaining 'emergency advice' a bit tricky. Good luck for February!
kelvyn, heard lot of good things about the Born to run ultra from this years runners, it is mainly all tarmac/ cycle paths though but fine if you likey that kinda thing
ah yes, no excuse then if that close to home! i know 2 or 3 people who did it this year and one going back again to do it.
i wish i had mountains and hills on my doorstep!
Beachy Head mara in eight words: windy, hilly, cold, great views, fantastic marshals/volunteers.
Fairly pleased with my finish time of 4.35, given that I've not specifically trained for this run. Much less slippery packed chalk than the Jog Shop Jog 20 a fortnight ago, thankfully. Might have been a bit faster if I hadn't done the cross-country and 10K last weekend, but hey, I was running the cross-country for my club, and I wanted a proper 10K time.
04:54am?????? WIB.....why didnt anyone remind you??????
I got up at the right time... I was just saying it was still dark out the door at 06:00 for a morning run
Still having achilles issues?
Ultrarocker - I had that 'creaky' thing in my achilles earlier in the year, feel your pain bud, that creaking sh1t is just plain weird too.
Snowdonia Marathon - First post Hardmoors DNF run for me chance to test my hamstrings on some hills, started out great, moving on the flat and on the uphill really well indeed, some good splits with low, low effort, early on. Some improvement in the hamstrings as the 'chronic fatigue' feeling didn't hit them until a little later perhaps miles 15 or so, thereafter it was a sloggggg held on though by walking the uphills from 15 onwards and finished in 4:29. The event is great scenery almost made up for it being on road.
