How was your race Martin? OH ran his ultra (52miles) on Saturday, he did incredibly well - 11hrs-ish and is absolutely fine after. Ridiculous. He feasted throughout the race on whatever he could get his hands on, hates gels, so home made flap cakes, sausage rolls etc. I'm a bit proud.
FRC - I have a technical question. Why is it that I run faster after long cycle rides? My long rides always have a run of around an hour after them, and, somehow, I always run these at a faster pace than if I was just to go out for a normal run, but it feels easier. We're talking 8:36m 7 miler after a 100 mile cycle, when during the week I'll be more like 9:30-10:00 without a cycle.. ??
Thanks Agreed FRC - fully plan to test these things post - Iron. I've signed up for Abingdon marathon, but might trade that for a place at Chester, given I'll be closer to there after the move, which is imminent btw.
