share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
Happy New Year and good luck for a great year of running for everyone!
21 miles run today (including four @ 8mins/mile in the club self-handicap, which was probably the wrong thing to do). One tendon behind my left knee not happy. Hope to do 10 miles tomorrow...
I know that a lot of people here have had an awesome running year in 2012, and there is no reason why we can't all do even better in 2013. My annual mileage for 2013 currently stands at 7.43 miles!
That state of affairs won't last for long.
My main priority for the early part of the year is my grudge match with the Viking Way Ultra.
This time Ahab is going to kill the whale!
Don't worry Touie... sure you'll be fine for the weekend
So... first ultra of 2013?! Mine will be Country to Capital but that is just a leg stretcher taking it very easy getting ready for Rocky Raccoon which is my first proper race of the year. First weekend in Feb.
My races for the year - http://ultrapaulo.wordpress.com/
Winter Tanners 30 as a final training run before Thames Trot 50, I sincerely hope!
I don't think I will be doing Winter Tanners now. Was going to be my long run before RR but have decided to just head out locally and put a good run in as opposed to running around with a map and instructions getting lost
WiB: agoing by what I'm hearing regarding present conditions, we're going to need a lot of dry weather in the next month, or a lot of diversions...
Yeah I have heard that the C2C course is pretty wet at the moment too. All adds to the fun
But I want to do an off-road running ultra, not a swim!
You can still run when its wet!!!
Would it matter if I did the back to backs the wrong way around sometimes?
Ie 12+20 instead of 20 +12. Or would it be better to up it to 14 +20
Or should this be a thread in itself?
