Well done everyone, don't know why I seem to come back to this one every year must be because of my masochistic tendencies.
This year the weather was great for the event but it still doesn't make the hills any easier, at least the farmer didn't muck spread one of the fields like a couple of years ago. You could smell it for miles before you got to it and there was only about a 6ft gap at the edge of the field you could run down.
Finished in 2hrs 50mins which I'm pleased with as I been struggling up to now with my times, legs didn't have much ache in them the next day even though they knew it after I crossed the finish line.
Just about spat my tea out reading the last bit of your message Victoria.
Went for my usual morning training run of 10 miles at 7am and it was a different degree of cold which I'm expecting for this Sunday. Haven't been hot for the last week and a half whilst out running even when I did my 17mile LSR on Sunday it was fffffrrreeeeezzzziiiinnnngggg and just managed to get back to the car when the blizzard hit.
Don't think that jacket will be round your waist all the way around the course to be honest unless you are a hardy soul.
Does anyone want a spare number, I've entered this and didn't realise it was at the same time of the Ashby20 road race (20 miles undulating) which I really need to run instead as its part of my VLM training plan.
I've looked at the event website and it looks like its the usual rules that numbers can't be transferred so you would have to run as me so you obviously have to be male and ideally a V50. As long as you don't mind your name not being associated with your run then I'm willing to post it out to whoever wants it for free, its first come first served I'm afraid.
Click on my name to private message me and the lucky first will be messaged back asking for their address and I'll send it 1st Class recorded signed for to ensure it arrives, so its best to give me an address where someone will be in.
