share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
The only time I drink coke is during races... Don't think I could manage a liter in one hit.
i drink flat coke after runs-i cant drink fizzy stuff-....except champagne
agreed, champagne is the only fizzy drink that doesn't seem to fizz in my nose! Won't touch any other fizzy stuff ...
cragc...we need to do an ultra and finish with champers for us then!!!!!!!!
Looks like my injury and health worries are behind me. The question is can i get my fitness up to run the Malvern 80 miles by beginning of May!
Well Im starting from about 15 miles for my long run so a long way to go!
will quite happily experiment with the 'travelability' of champagne!!
LLB - YES we do, I did look at the Welsh one but logistics with flights just didn't work . Think will have to find one more in the SE/SW England neck of the woods and thereby get my family to assist with transportation etc (as they did with SDW)
Good news re the injuries/health stuff Spen, look forward to hearing about training, and YES of course you can
My treadmill is being delivered on 3 December. Clearly takes well over a week to travel to deepest darkest IV postcode areas!
Its 20 weeks or so to it so onwards and upwards!
You'll nail it Spen... rested and ready to rock!
cragc -so we need a SW/SE one in 2013 to do then...that allows alcohol...erm...
maybe we could make our own up .... erm maybe that's sounding a bit like a ultra-distance wine-bar crawl!!
Actually, a very real possibility that I was contempling was the Green Man ultra in Bristol, 2 March, mainly cos the start is just 7 miles from Bristol airport and I can fly Inverness to Bristol direct quite cheap. Need to check if/when we are going skiing and if I am down doing winter climbing at Glenmore Lodge for a couple of days as a mock student for someone (in which case I'll have some domestic negotiating to do!!!).
Think I will start a 100 mile plan then this week!
Me four. I think I will do at least 100 miles next year
Once you are an ultra runner would you generally only run ultra races ? Or would you still run 5k, 10k, HM and FM as well ?
You can run whatever you want to!
