share your ambitions/goals/training here on a 'newbie ultra' thread........
touie2: Sympathies and good luck forrapid healing. Regarding re-starting, I took two weeks off after TT50, then did a week of reduced mileage (maybe 20-25 miles) ending with nine miles on the Sunday, then jumped to about 40 miles for the following week ending with 8 + 20 at the weekend and I'm intending to do 25ish this Sunday, although not fast as I'll be following SDW for the first time.
If any of you speak Spanish, you'll love this little video. "Esos locos que corren" means something like "Those crazy runners". If you don't speak Spanish, watch it anyway, you'll get the idea just from the animation.

Dragons Back anyone?
Dragons Back anyone?
no. i dont want to die yet ta muchly.
on a serious note anyone interested in doing Vulcania ot Transgran (preferable) next year? i bagsy doing the off road 4x4 driving!!
Transvulcania looks awesome. I would be tempted depending on cost as I want to go out to the states again.
well, theres a year to look into it. im up for it.
entry to either isnt much.
im only doing it for the tan
I will ask someone who goes over this year about it and see what they say... I want another US buckle so will save some cash for that next year.
get lots on info from them
I quite fancy the Dragons Back actually ... I have also got a great suntan on many occasions in Wales ... I guess if you go somewhere enough times and all that
cragc, i have a stripey kind of tan and wind tan all year round- i think thats maybe how you can spot an ultra runner..either that or the tan thats actually dirt/dust from the trail
came back from Ridgeway last summer with various marks and tan lines so yes indeed you can get a running tan in uk -but i could achieve a better one in gran canaria lol
Crag that was rust!
nope - definitely tan , but also plenty of rust!
and yes, I have that wind/weather/sun tan from the neck up too We get lots of sun up here, it just ain't that warm
i fancy the pony express 3 day ultra - its in Brockenhurst where we have stayed in a cottage 3 years running-lovely there and i ran every day there last year the week before my first ultra
