Thanks all. Yeah, Hoka (stupid shoes) Highland Fling. Very undertrained with nothing further than marathon distance in 15 months, I KNEW it would hurt. A lot. And it did, but I finished ok and really enjoyed the day.
Life is a bit hectic right now with work and an impending house move (tomorrow!) So will write up a bit of a report soon.
CW - actually, yes. 1 guy emailed to ask if I would sell now as he had collapsed at 24M and was removed from the course by the medics (no, you didn't finish, so you didn't complete, so you don't deserve it (I thought to myself)). 1 guy emailed saying that it was for his wife who had hers stolen (reasonable enough). And 1 guy from Singapore who seemed to just be a collector.
Fizz again this morning, and re-taped the hammy. Interesting reading about the glute weakness RS - this has niggled away for about a year, and increase in core and flexibility doesn't really help. 800m reps tonight will be a tester.
Just caught up. Well done all, some seriously awesome times from last week.
A mediocre run from me - went out running to what I thought my (time) limit was on the day, hit HW on target 1.24.2x, but by that time the hammy had already blown so a 6min +ve split in 2.54.14, sprinting away from TR at the line.
Thank you GBK for 4 visits. And thank you Mr eBay-er for the £102. Think that maybe the top bid?
