share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
Running ok CC?! I have verything booked for the Fling. Looking forward to it! Did you get a WHW place too?
I will never get sick of Chocolate outrage GU gels Lou! I am taking at least 50 to RR
I dont like bladders tho as you know
Maybe that one. Expensive but should cover all races especially when i keep my OMM 15L
Not as expensive
Did i say I did not like bladders!?!?
Cant have Nutella It's chocolate! The jar is handy tho!
The jars make very handy drink glasses - they bounce on floors when kids drop them
LLB - yes there is comfort in familiarity
Running is ticking along. Not much over the holidays unfortunately what with hubby and kids under feet and a whistle-stop tour of the lower half of England to catch up with family. But got a decent 15-miler in - new headtorch from hubby (clearly need to mention new kit here) got trialled on a solo in-the-dark run along coastal path and beach which was fab. Have new inhaler for asthma which seems to be an improvement - fingers crossed.
So, yes, Fling is now the focus as part of the route to the WHW, hoping to poss do the Dee33 in March too (flat speedy - ha ha - out and back from Aberdeen). So just about to plan a schedule of sorts for all this - eek.
Loving my Nathan pack and I love bladders - especially now I have one that doesn't leak all my drink out immediately after I filled it up!!
I have no idea how anyone can run an ultra on GU gels alone and not have stomach probs ... it's like eating that Betty Crocker ready made butter icing (not sure those who haven't had to make kids bday cakes will know what I am on about!!) with caffeine in it!
Spen - Raidlight have just updated the Olmo 20l, I think though to be more MdS specific, not sure of the front pouch is detachable or not:
Also Ultimate Direction seem to be getting quite a following (they also have some packs designed by Scott Jurek and Anton Krupika), I like the look of the look of the Diablo and Highline as have bladder and bottles.
As ever the price in $ look pretty good no doubt when they reach the UK they will defy the exchange rate though and be expensive.
Alistair you like to collect cardboard?
You do not have to get them in America tho, buy them here.
I think Alistair meant when they are available here they will be more expensive than the price suggests in $.
