Hmm, do I do it again??? At the moment I can't see me doing another offical ultra. I'm a bit gutted I didn't make the cut off but I learnt so much from Sunday (which already seems like a week ago). A couple of mates are doing SDW so I'll be crewing and pacing for them but my main targets now are XC season and then shinny new pb's at 10k and half marathon, just need my legs to come back to life.
Klute, that was me you were talking to, well done on your time and enjoy Comrades, once you have the wife onside
Anyone want to trade legs? Mine are wrecked. Thanks Fox and Gav for the first 30miles, wish I could have carried on with you both but my legs were struggling and you guys are faster than me I was getting cramp at every style and gate. Thanks Rob for the next 20 miles.
I think I enjoyed it on the whole. I was so close to throwing the towel in at 35 miles but I decided I'd gone too far for that. I covered 60.45 in the end, the worst navigational error on my part was the finish, I came down the wrong road and went towards Brighton Pier! 5 minutes later I turned around and finished properly, what makes it worse is I'm from Brighton!
Great to meet the guys of the forum, I saw you mum at the end Prep School, she said that you were bringing in a clan of runners, Well Done! Hope to see some of you again soon. Remember SDW opens tomorrow. I’m not racing it as I’m crewing but thought I’d mention it for the other nutters
Well done guys and girls (even those who did cuts bits off the course!)
