Overall I enjoyed it. Very runnable course with quite a few ups and downs, especially that hill at roughly 20 miles? Seemed almost verticle when I was climbing up it.
Felt sick from 20-27 miles, nearly quit at the 25.8 mile aid station but didn't want the marshall who was telling people to MTFU to give me a load of verbal so I carrried on.
Felt great from about 30 miles until the end and although tiredness was creeping in but was still running the flats and some of the lesser inclines.
Spent a bit too long in a couple of the aid stations which probably added 15-20 mins to my time, something to improve on next time, I was a lot quicker in the SDW50 aid stations but felt I needed a bit longer in them this time.
Finished in 9:33 which I'm really pleased with considering my last 20 miler was early July and my longest run since then was 13 miles so really hadn't trained for it.
I liked the course and the road sections were a good chance to put the hammer down. I'll definately be back next year.
Run all three canal ultras in one year (LLCR130, GUCR145 & KACR140)
Adding that to mine Jamie. Super ambitious but think of all the history to be running through. Recently been enjoying runs along Nottingham waterways and it's a different world away from the streets. Really nice.
I've emailed the organiser to put my name down for next year. I want to do something big next year and this could be the thing I attempt. Would have to really commit to the training, finding the time with an 18 month old and another one due in March could be an achievement in itself.
