Well done Ikle, that's a good marathon a week after TR24, why were you up at 4:52 though, Early start to get there?
And no medal for the enduro, that's not good. Doesn't sound like you enjoyed it, or some chunks of it. Can't say I fancy a solo 12/24 race, laps bore me unless in a team..I want to see new worlds and civilisations.. To boldly go (hang on, that's something else) Did you run/ walk the laps or just run? Not clear..
The feeling Sick is common. Fido has it, and slow duck on comrades thread.
Double oh Dave, welcome. You're not far off, just a few good months training and there.
In agreement with Fidos .suggestion a.) 10 mile session at MP.. I do 8-12 at MP. Even with a few minutes break if going down to running club. Long runs I do MP plus 60-90s, maybe some chunks of 2-4 miles at MP near the end. Rest of time, want to be fresh for the next weeks runs.
Park run Marshal today, then nipped on train for F3 circuit.. Designed by sports science pal of mine. The hour felt far worse than a TR24 lap...horrible mix of short cardio 10 second bursts and strength after in 30s chunks.. Uses up every last bit of energy.. And then finding still another set to do. Horrible during the session, great after.
we had a great weekend, camping out. having two teams was good fun, three really as one of my friends was also doing it as a solo ultra and camping with us so his wife had people to talk to. very weird conditions underfoot.
Hoping this report is the ultra 5-6 weeks ago Ikle is talking about.. as she only did 3 laps at TR24.. after 4 laps last year), but refused a 4th available as it was raining and a bit chilly. softy southener
Everyone had gone by the time we got back to camp.
My OH managed two laps, as did Ikle's. Think there was a bit of a surprise race going on...Ikle? spill the beans.
JGC, you're always welcome. Mike hopefully back to.
