Hello, marshallini! You & I go back to the earliest days of this thread! Glad you're still running strongly.
Hi Swittle Hope you are well. Are you still on a streak?
I'm far from running strongly, an injury had me out for 8 months of 2014 and I've only been dabbling since December, nowhere near 100% still, plus other things have come back to niggle, Running in pain (discomfort) takes a lot of the fun out of it
I first posted on here on page 1 (20 July 2007) and regularly posted until my last post on this thread which was 06 January 2010.
One of my all time favourite routes, only came on here to look back and find out what my pb for this course is, but thought I'd post "my last run" while I'm here.
After some searching my best is 50:12.32 – 9:39 min/mile ave (6 Sept '07), so not too bad considering I wasn't trying, in fact I'm made up with today's run
Putting things in to context, I haven't really run much since January 2009, although I did have a really good 12 months (July 2011 to July 2012) training for an Ironman. But again very little since and I think I've only run in the "Hills" about 10 times in the last 7 years.
Would twenty 5km races in twenty hours be considered an Ultra?
Details still a bit vague at the moment; "There will be 20 5k races Jemma over the 24 hrs, it's a team event so a team of 5 will complete all 20 races (4 each). Hope that helps." . I have contacted the organiser asked about single person teams and they've said maybe, if there is enough interest.
