Ultra people in these parts - have any of you heard of/done the Liverpool - Manchester Ultra? Considering next year with OH. And how many hours a week do you think you need to put in for a 50 miler? (i.e can I also keep up some semblance of triathlon training alongside).
Alternatively I have never managed a sub 1:50 half but have a sub 4 marathon under my belt.. So many factors come into play. I second using pacers, you can relax into a rhythm much easier then go for it if you're still feeling good in the last bit.
Martin - 78 is a huge achievement, I look forward to watching your tally continue to rise!
Ikle - Do you know which half iron you'd like to do? I'm looking to book one in next year too.
My legs have finally forgiven me and I can run now without feeling awful. New Parkrun pb this weekend 22:47 and 2nd woman, yay. Have a 10k next weekend as 2nd wedding anniversary activity with OH. Fingers crossed for a pb there too
Logic, sounds like you're pretty well on track - all the best for the race.
I have been sat on my couch eating crisps for the past 4 weeks.. time to start training again I think. I don't really know where to go from here though. I want to get faster at all the things, but I don't really know how to do that after spending however many years trying to go further..
