Yep you got it UTMB and WS. It will be mega money to do both but there's the small matter of gaining entry first.
Feels weird not being able to plan anything for next year on the off chance that i may get in either of these events. I would usually have next year planned by now.
What has caused friction at home is my reluctance to book a holiday untill i know about my races. A wife that has not got their holiday booked is not a happy wife. I hear Chamonix is nice in August or even California in June
Greensands done and it was lovely. Great race, one of the best. Plenty of mud, hills and a beautiful trail it don't really get better than that. Only problem is my Achilles feels a tad sore. Very worrying. I'll give it a couple of days but may have to blow out Snowdon mara next week. Gutted i've been looking forward to it.
Li Lavaredo is on my to do list too. Looks gorgeous and i've never been to Italy. I have also got an entry going into the GUCR so there are options. Lucky you having UTMB guaranteed. V jealous.
Sorry to hear your struggling. Good and bad days are part and parcel of our sport. I felt like crap at Clarenden two weeks ago yet today i could have turned round and run it again.
Your hip doesn't sound good at all, injury sucks big time. Be a shame if you don't make the race. I will be toeing the line come hell or high water. My Achilles will have to snap for me not to make it. I have to get that grand slam i don't want to have to do it again. I need to move on. I'll take 30 hours if need be.
At least your running Li you can leave it a while yet before deciding. I had to blow out Snowdon today, too risky for my ankle. Niggle has been there all week so i'm takin a couple of weeks off just to be safe.
Swam 1k and cycled 20 mile this morning. Doesn't hit the spot like a run though. Don't want to lose too much fitness so x training every day from here on in.
What is a bit of a worry is shoe choice. My Hokas are my firm favorite at the moment but they are very flat so aggravate my Achilles as do my Brooks. So it may have to be my roadies come race day.
Not me mate, I had a quick run round Bushy Park early doors but I'm still taking it easy after 50 miles at CC last weekend
Will be ramping it back up again this week though
Hope the various niggles sort themselves out. I am currently trying to avoid the severe case of man flu that my 8 yr old son has got
Still havin problems with my Achilles so went off to the physio tonight, thought i would go and see what he thought about my chances of running.
Didn't go too bad at all, he reckons all the niggles are normal given the severity of the original injury. Had a calf strain ironed out which is just exacerbating the achilles problem.
Carry on with the x training for the final two weeks and i'll be on the start line.
Everyone else ready?
Slane i would loved to have agreed with you straight away but i had to look that one up and yes i concur
Are you manning an aid station?
Lin - good to know. Nice cold cola would be nice, the fat kind pleasey please
Lets see if I can make it a hat trick of 100 milers for 2012!
i'm doing the POS so may well see some of you along the way!
