Given the terrain I would call that fairly unscathed oh nice, that's not far from you isn't it?

Had a nice stretch at the gym last night. 5 minute walk, 20 minute row, 20 minute walk, 10 minute row, couple of stretches....done

NICE!! Thats a lot of up! Yeah legs are a bit thrashed but not mega bad. My toe is a little bruised and I have a bit of a grumpy blister from the mud and stones....probably got something in it

Going to try and have a easy workout at the gym today, bit of rowing, bit of spinning, that sort of thing.

What marathon are you going for JR?

well done JR!

LOADS of mud and hills for me too. just under 27 miles of boggy slippery mud and pretty nasty hills. Everyone there was saying its the hardest marathon they have ever done and most of them were in the 100 marathon club!!! I was running with a guy for a little while who was doing his 600th!! He said there was a guy up front who has done 800 and something........I stopped thinking about being tired at that point.

It was a tough old day, I would call it a mini north downs way. The organizer was talking about moving to june next year. If that is the case im all over it!! I think I could tear around there a lot quicker with some solid footing. My first lap even with the boggy mud was 57 minutes for just over 5.5 miles. Loads of great long downhill sections to take advantage of.

The winner was in at around 3:20 I think.......bonkers!!! No idea how he got round that so fast!!

I came in was a suprising sprint finish at 5:51. I had nothing left to give other than a smile

edit - just had it confirmed that the elevation gain was 2356ft....just under half a mile ha ha ha ouch

JR - I am going to gauge it by the first lap, if its not too messy then ill give it a good bash. If the mud is too silly then ill just enjoy it and get round.

Keep your chin up Robert we are all here to keep you going

330 - a new one in Mill Hill. 5 (ish) mile hilly muddy loops, should be a giggle.

I think Grendel had to bail if its the xc your talking about?

Yeah not long to go now. Amsterdam was fun on the legs ha ha ha Sunday could be pretty tough
