Thanks Debra. As you say it could be so much worse. Already part of the great parkrun community at Bedfont Lakes and on volunteer roster for the next 5 weeks.I am holding off cancelling my hotel for Beachy Head marathon on 25th Oct in the vain hope that I might at least be able to walk it!! 7 weeks any chance???
Having to put my ultra ambitions on hold. Turns out I fractured my foot at Salisbury 54321. Thought it was just bruised and ran the Thames Meander marathon last week. Some pain but not too bad until last night's track session. X ray today revealed breaks in my 4th and 5th metatarsals. Enforced rest and recovery will be hard!!
Thanks Debra. Will look at the Centurion races. I have booked The Pony Express for next May with XNRG. 60 miles over 2 days in the New Forest. Did their Chiltern ultra and had a great experience with them.
Thanks Richyla and LNandB. An enjoyable foray into the world of ultras. Have 3 trail marathons in August and then considering the Longman 33.4 miler on 7th Sept. Two more trail mara's in Sept then back to a speedy road attempt in Oct. My best advice for trail running in summer is to wear compression or long socks. Corn fields and stinging nettles are not your friends. Enjoy!!
