Just a quick note to say I did my ultra yesterday and had an amazing time. Very friendly atmosphere and well organised. I didn't quite run for the full 6hrs but I did complete 33miles in 4:27. I decided to stop cause I was hurting and thought it wise to listen to my body. The gauntlet had been thrown down by the organiser saying that he had designed the course in such a way that he doesn't think it possible to do 16 laps (52.4 miles) so I want to show him it is possible..
On a slightly different note, I took part in my ultra yesterday ams what am experience. I didn't quite civet the distance I had planned but I am happy with how it all went.. I did 33 miles in 4:27 but the cherry on the cake was that I only consumed 300cal the whole race. I had a fry up in the morning and nothing else. The race started at 15:30 so I was pretty empty at the beginning. I had plenty of energy at the end but I was forced to stop due to various parts of my body hurting and I didn't want to pick up an injury.. FM thanks for the idea of tailwind products. Amazing stuff..
Evening folks.. It's been a while since I last popped in. Will need to catch up on the goings on over the last few weeks..
I did my last run tonight before my ultra tomorrow. Slightly anxious but looking forward to it and will report after I've got home.
