Thanks very much for the point in the right direction Personel. Booktrunk, it's going well so far and long runs up to 15 miles and also started to do some fell running. I've had my first twinge with a bit of runners knee but hopefully a few days rest should sort that out. Looking at marathons to aim for in the Spring as the next target.
OK, point taken. I am new to this so forgive me for not knowing the etiquette. If people don't want to read it then they don't have to follow the link. It says in the title pretty much what the thread is about. I am just doing the blog as a personal diary really and posted it in case it was of any interest to anybody. I promise not to post links to it again.
I started my journey towards doing my first Ultra next year when I entered The Lakeland 50 back in September. This is the latest instalment of my blog charting my journey towards becoming a proper ultra runner.
Well I've gone and done it now. After much procrastination I have taken the plunge and entered the Lakeland 50 and hopefully by the end of July next year I shall be able to call myself an ultra marathon runner.
For anyone who is interested I am writing a blog about my journey from 5k to ultra marathon at;
Although it is mainly there as a reminder to me why I am doing it and what I hope to achieve I also hope that other first timers can empathise with it and we can support each other through the months ahead until we join the ultra club.
