Hi folks, tis still me with a 'new' username and a clue to my latest incarnation
DD, sorry it's late, an epic review - I was with you all the way and could almost feel how you thought when Mo flew past Glad to hear you met some old and new faces as well - impressive considering the amount of runners.
Like VT I must read back a bit and take stuff in
It's now 2 weeks since Lochaber and have run 40 miles. My stupid attempt at a HADD test last week was...well...stupid and didn't complete it so just easy miles though managed a whopping 2.5 barefoot miles in there.
I had(d) a 21 week Marathon plan written for Loch Ness in September starting early May but now thinking I'll continue with easy miles for another couple of months and just add in a subLT session (maybe) June then some marathon paced running during my LSR but will see how things go.
As for the screws, I'm only a wannabe barefoot runner and might (just might) do the last 10k barefoot if training goes well.
Rich, I may well do Lochaber again next year as although the weather was bad I really enjoyed it there. As for the Hotel I'm leaving that to the OH as I messed up last time and spent the eve of LN in... well... basically a hut!
For those thinking of the pasta party at registration you should do it for the atmosphere however I had mine around 4pm and wasn't really a carb load.
Txs Rich and yes, the weather was terrible but (strangely) I didn't notice it until mile 15 when I got my stitch and started to feel bad so guess much of it is in your head?
sheesh, am still undecided but will probably follow my bastardised Hal Higdon does HADD training plan - basically doing the daily miles and especially LSR mileage of Higdon but following the HADD phase one approach (if that makes senses?).
