Tricia, I hope so, I held onto my place in the hope that I'd be a bit fitter but am going to give it a go anyhow. Back of the field is where I'll be too. I can manage 15-16 miles no great problem I think but haven't really gone over that, apart from my great glen day out so the second half could be slow and painful!
Just going to look into accommodation and travel today, didn't want to book anything in case I got injured again!
Pleasant ten miles with some friends today, weather cheered up though it's windier than has been for a while, sunny and mild. Hope the calf clears up tricia.
Good to see you two too FFB, no one else I knew there, but shame you weren't so well on the run.
I'd be interested in the ultra recce if I'm fit (so much less stress than the real events though I guess not for the organiser!).
Lovely still autumn day here and after a late call in to work last night got myself going for a 16m predominately trail run from Stromness to Yesnaby. A little soggy but lovely, tired last few miles, really don't know if I'll handle an ultra in 2 weeks!
Back from hols, GGW 19 miles longest run in months survived while Peter did Loch NessMara, thoroughly enjoyed the day despite a couple of detours and getting serious chaffing on my collarbones from using Peter's ultrapac, wanted to try it, not for me! Thanks 57.5 for rote advice!
Nice mara work TP, now have a rest!
Few shorter but interesting runs while on Switzerland hols, up Utliberg the hill in Zurich and 10k at 1500m elevation which was hard and hilly but lovely.
Now what, I have an entry for Glen Ogle but my longest run is 19 miles, can I make it?
