Morning WAISTers 

Its Friday  and its Tea time 

I think loosing a pet is probably one of the hardest things, especially if you have had to make the decision yourself. Over the years I have had so say goodbye to 1 dog (Bruce) and 10 cats (Minky, Tabbatha, Bungle, Spike, Tubs, Titch, Shrimp, Lumpy, Timi & Tuffy) and each and every one bought me to tears both at 'that' time, leading up to it, and a long time afterwards, and even as I write this, the same is happening. Most were my decision, some were not. But the pain of parting does go and hide in the background eventually, only to surface as a reminder of just how much they meant to me. Now, most of the thoughts are happy ones, which in itself triggers it again. I actually hope that never goes, I never want to think 'just a cat' with no feelings. They were my family and I loved each and everyone of them. I feel sorry for those people who dont get attached to their pets and show no feelings in difficult times, they have no idea what there missing.

Good luck to all runners this weekend, VLM of otherwise 

My legs can move again , did a 3 miles with Roni wednesday, just!

I can stand up and sit down since wednesday and went for a run wed night, although only a slow 3 miler just to get some movement back!

Prior to that I needed assistance on pretty much anything that involved actually moving my legs....  

Southease is ok all the time your working across the hill and then back, but then you turn to go straight up the rest of it. By the time I got there, it was almost vertical

Then at the top of botolphs hill, got hit with cold cramps on all the leg muscle sets which made the next 15 miles very painful and very slow.

Of course that was AT the 15 mile point, and I meant to say it made the next 35 miles very painful and slow ...

Well, I finished within the cutoff 

It didnt go at all to plan, but as with all good battle plans, this one only worked up until I actually started 

The previous weeks smog/pollen/dust had made a right mess of my lungs and it was the first time I have ever had to run with a ventalin puffer just to be able to breath ! 

Then at the top of botolphs hill, got hit with cold cramps on all the leg muscle sets  which made the next 15 miles very painful and very slow.

I want to thank everyone who stopped to help, chatted, encouraged etc, including our own Peronel who helped free a siezed calf 

I will be doing a proper report soon, so wont bore you all with the details, (you can read it and get bored ) but needless to say once I discovered milk and melon, I was able to at least keep going in some form, and ended up at 13:08:08. 

I as most pleased to have started the race running, and ended it running round the track with my son Adam. Thats what I wanted to do after all!

I am happy to at last have made the transition from running many Ultra distance runs, to being an Ultra runner 

Next main race for me is the Stour Valley 100k in August, which I helped at last year, and now am really looking forward to running. Perhaps I will get to do well this time. There may be a 50k in may too, but it will be SVP I will work towards.

Paul, really well done on your race, 6:11 is just insane! I STILL cant work out how you top folk actually run up those hills ...

And well done to everyone else who took part or helped out.

Afternoon WAISTers 

SDW50 completed  in 13:08:08  with 5000ft of climb 

It really didnt go according to plan, with a string of related problems that actually started a week before the race with the smog/pollen/dust screwing my chest up! It was the first time I have had to run with a ventalin puffer in order to breath ... Then at mile 15 got cold cramps which lasted till the end! 

I wont bore you all with the details, but will be doing a race report soon which I will link, so you can read if you want to 

I crossed the line after running the athletics track with Adam  which is what I wanted to achieve! There is always next year to get the time I wanted (10:40 ish) 

Roll on the Stour Valley 100k in August 

Not read back much, will do later.

Morning WAISTers 

I'm with you Podds: on the fed up with pollution... yesterday wasnt too bad (or so I thought) but today its a lot harder to breath  cant see any sign of the wind to get rid of it either! feel knackered from the 'hard' breathing, and thats with inhaler stuff too 

Its going to make tommorows race interesting .... 

Fiona: sorry to hear that, is it possible for you to just let it slip over your head while thinking something like 'haha i wont have to put up with to***rs like you much longer' ? How long till you actually go? I know you have said but I've forgotten 

Happy Birthday Dragon

Not long now! 

I really hope this pollution stuff goes, breathing is a bit of a problem today again

Millsy, there wont be mile markers. The course is always very well marked for direction purposes, not distance.

If its any help, the SDW50 site has distances to aid stations, which are something like 11, 5, 10, 7, 7, 4.5, 4.2
