Congratulations Angela I sounds like a tough race. Brilliant write up and proof of the power of positive thinking.
I ran/shuffled 7.5 laps of Caldecotte Lake in Milton Keynes for a Lego Superhero medal. How sad am I? At least running on the flat was not as painful on my hip as the hills and rough terrain of SDW. Sadly wearing a Wonder Woman outfit did not make me super fast.
Next week is Bewl Water, marathon no. 47. Hope a week of rest will sort me out!
It's great to hear how everyone else is getting on. So sorry Soups and Chicksta have suffered some hard times but glad both are now on the mend.
I had a fabulous weekend with my club team mates at Endure 24. Camping and running 5 mile relay laps through the woods for 24 hours. Loved the night laps with the head torch, a whole new experience for me. I ran 6 laps and we finished 19th out of 159 teams in the 6-8 mixed category. Really chuffed.
My list of marathons is fairly extensive so will only add the first few to the list for now.
20th June South Downs
21st June Enigma Superhero
27th June Bewl Water
18th July Dorset Invader
19th July North Downs Way
Just have to hope my poor old piriformis doesn't cause too much distress.
Well done to everyone who ran Milton Keynes and Chicksta for your great write up of your Prague experience. I love the mentality of hunting down the opposition.
Love your list of goals Superman. Which ultra have you got booked for Dec? I may well be marshalling at the Kingston marathon as I am running the 9 Bar trail challenge the day before. I have another 7 marathons booked and that one will be my 50th.
I have not escaped unscathed from my foray into double day ultra running. I have aggravated my piriformis so am suffering from a pain in the butt and numbness down my left leg. Why if it is numb does it still hurt? So a cautionary tale about upping your mileage.
I am also in a club team in the Mizuno 24 hour relay. Should be great fun running 5 mile laps throughout the day and night and embracing the camararderie of the event.
