Theres loads of book on amazon if you look under books and search for Ultra marathon. But the one above looks good
I am on 60 miles for this month so no way am I beating my 77 last but one full month before I go on hols and I simply WILL run 100 miles in July, if I don't I will eat my trainers video it and put it on here for you all to see !!
JR - I have only done Londons and Dublin, never smaller one and I can imagine smaller runs, especially your first must be hard
Point 2 - You may feel it beat you mentally but you didn't drop out you fought on and took the race on head to head - you finished and maybe be better mentally prepared next time? I know for my 2nd I did find I was better prepared as in a way I knew what to expect if that makes sence?
Point 3 - Way to go !!!!! that's it mate take the experience use it to make you stronger !!
JR - What a great achievement and you may not have got the time you wanted but you kept going. The marathon is not easy but you applied yourself went out there and done it. Am glad that you are looking for another one to do, that's brilliant
As JaneyH said - don't leave us bud. We are all here for each other and I for one am gratefull you started this thread which is a brilliant inspiration for so many
The marathon is physical and mental - it can break you or not. Seems to me the beast didn't break you mate and well done for that. Your looking for the next - JR your an inspiration mate. 3 years I have been posting and speaking with you - lets not stop that as you inspire me
I am a runner - forever, this sport forms great bonds
