Good stuff Robin - will probably be up around 4ish or so myself to get set up and do a few warm up laps Awful nice of your wife - I'm "meant" to be a vegetarian but I think this could be a weekend off. I'll bring some sausages
Lakeland Warrior is definitly on. The 26Extreme lads were out a few days ago doing a recce of the course. It starts in Gortatole and basically heads due north through the forest almost to the Lower Lough Erne and loops back on itself. Over 5,000ft of gain - and some tight pulls. The lads haven't made the route public yet as it crosses over some private land - and they're just awaiting permission.
Yeah it's a bigger event this year Jim - especially with the relay. Reckon it'll make it a bit easier mentally with more folk on the track but harder to hold the tight inside lane if you're having to weave about alot.
I'm just gonna run on how I feel. Plan is to not sit down at all unless I need to change shoes - eat and drink on the move and eat something, even it's only a bite of a bar every mile at the very least.
Aiming to run strong for as long as humanly possible and then just hang on...somehow
Not sure on hotels at all Frank. I live a few hrs from Belfast and am just driving up and down.
Doin well thanks Finn. I was down in Connemara at the weekend running and don't think my quads have ever felt as beat up as they do right now. Anything you would advise to get them feeling better quicker? How are you feeling Finn? Any vast improvements over the past week or two?
I'm heading to the start line crewless this year, which isn't a biggie as I thought it was a wee bit unnecessary last year.
