Hi all, Hope everyones training and racing is going well. Very limited running for me recently but I did marshall the Lakeland100/50 at the weekend.
It was such an incredible weekend/event in every imaginable way...smashed course records, every extreme of weather, tears of joy, tears of sorrow and pain, success, failure and amazing support from 1000's incl family, friends, marshals and strangers.
I think I may have a target now for 2014...the 50 route of course as I'm not quite insane enough to attempt the 100. I'm throwing to the run the Rivington Ultra26 in Nov and take it from there.
All of your times are pipe dreams at the moment for me.
I had to work hard to run 1:59 at Potters Arf this month but when I checked my Garmin account I've run a whopping total of 8hrs since 01/01/13 including that race so it's no surprise I'm no where near to the sub 1:45 I'd like.
I have done 30-40hrs cycling this year which will have helped but I know I need time on my feet so I guess I need a better balance of training if I want to improve my times.
