London to Brighton 100k race

Posted: 25/04/2016 at 23:17

I found the terrain extremely challenging - climbing over fallen trees/roots in the middle of the night. I'd trained off-road, but some of this was really hard, for a city girl like me, anyway.

The signage was brilliant, however - with glowsticks everywhere at night time, and loads where there were difficult hazards to get around. 

My son did the last 5k with me, no problems ... even when it went onto the race course at the end.

Re: train stations - at one point the route actually went through one, although it wasn't far from the end by that point, so you'd probably want to keep going!

Pirate spotting

Askern Leisure Centre - I spotted your pirate sticker on your car ...?

Is this possible/sensible?

Is it the Action Challenge event? If so it is really well supported, but some of it is very off-road - clambering over thick tree roots, and picking your way down very steep wooded, difficult terrain ... its a fantastic event, excellent signposting - with lots of glow sticks at night time ... I guess recovery would depend how hard you tried - if you walked a lot, which is fine, since its predominantly a walking event ... I guess recovery would be a lot quicker, but get a really good head lamp for the night time bit!

How to be an assertive patient - tips to avoid being fobbed off

I've just had a letter to say my op has been cancelled - for the second time. This is the second time its happened, it was supposed to be in August originally, but apparently the surgeon got study leave so it was postponed until Oct 5th. This letter gave no reason, and no new date either

shall I just give up? 

Where you racing 2016?

apologies if I've missed anyone out - I'm hoping to come out to play next year, too!
