SE - youre making me feel better talking about the compass!! Im hitting my local running shop tomorrow to sort out my kit list which will include my 1st pair of trail shoes!!!! I get the feeling Im not entirely prepared for this!
That sounds great, I'll definitely try to make a few of them.
Mandy Id be up for a forumites reccie too!
Recovering nicely from the dublin marathon. Im doing the Rosedale Rumble (13 mile) in a few weeks. That will really be my 1st taste of a trail run with some significant elevation. Really looking forward to it! Will be starting my Ultra training plan in early January - bascially just adding on another long run so I have 2 each weekend and tryig to find some hills!!
