Will read back when I can, a fair bit of time needed methinks.
Yesterday's race was going rather well until about 37miles (on course for a big pb, and a potential sub9) until a bit of a tumble along the lochside (very technical section) which caused increasing cramps and spasms for the next 18miles or so. Ran out fluid too, which didn't really help. I wasn't giving up though, so MTFU'd and kept moving forward. The last 3 miles in particular were very unpleasant and pretty certain that I experienced the "ultra shuffle"!! Sub10 with a 9.55 and 30mins faster than 2 years ago. Perfect conditions and an incredibly stacked field with both m & w course records tumbling.
Those of a nervous disposition should look away now....
