The WW50 sounds like it's going to be a muddy slog fest, part of me wishes I was doing it but being shin deep in mud isn't my idea of fun if I'm honest.
I'm back in for the SDW50 again next April and have put my name on the waiting list for the SDW100 but I've got my eye on the canal slam as well, if I decide to take the plunge with that then the SDW100 can wait for another year.
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.
