20 miles over Dartmoor today. Training going ok but not as structured as I would like. Is it just me but there,s no way I could stick to a proper training plan.
I run when I can and hope to get to the starting in reasonable shape line without being divorced!
Ian i agree training plans are not the ultra runners way. Run cause you love running. It never gets dull that way.
Gotta shake this crappy man flu before Sunday. Really wanna run Greensands mara but throat feels like i've got a razor blade stuck in it.
Ooo Rocky Racoon. V jealous WiB
Nice one pmo... I don't think I could bury myself for 30 miles then tag another 20!
I am very excited about it Dill. My first race abroad!
So many great races overseas. So bloody expensive though. I'm entering a couple next year and will cane the credit card if i get in. Don't understand how people afford to race abroad every year.
I must be doing something wrong. I'm skint..
Are you making a holiday of it or just going for the race?
Yea I've really gotta get out more. Even if i don't get in any of my "A" races next year i'll travel abroad for one of the big ones. 40 next year so got to celebrate somehow.
Lirish... stop hurting yourself before races! Hope you are ok to run mate.
Went out at dusk last night and forgot my torch. Still went same dark route and turned my ankle on a kerb, landed face first in the main road. Was running at a fair pace at the time, still picking the tarmac out of my hands. My knee has a lump on it like an egg. Real sore today so no run tonight.
I'll be happy to toe the line next month in one piece.
Sorry to hear your out Andy thats a real blow.
I'm sure you'll be there Li your fitness couldn't be worse than mine. You should try some Hokas, they really helped my injury riddled body . Can't wear them for short fast runs but for lenghty runs the impact on your body seems greatly reduced. Lost both big toenails but no sore joints
My participation is entirely dependent upon
1) how bad Caesars Camp 100 is this weekend (in terms of a) fininishing and b) foot damage)
2) the fact I haven't told the wife yet !
So as long as 1) isn't too bad I may be in the market for jewellery (again)
Telling your family members that you are going to run 100 miles always poses some interesting problems.
Not too bad Li.. The Achilles tendinitis has been a real bind, my fitness level is out the window at the moment. Greensands mara tomorrow so still banging in some mileage just not as much as i'd like.
What's with the hip? Is it the same problem you had before the SDW?
Regarding the wife situation i've been lucky mine crews for me. Not so sure she will be so understanding about next year though. If i get in my A races it's going to get expensive.
