well im no good a long posts either!
the short version is ,as this was my second ultra after northants my (foolish) plan was to run the whole race without walk breaks, hills aswell!
well you can guess what happened cant you ,i got to about miles 17/18 and the wheels well and trully fell off & i had a very slow and painful last 13 miles which invovled ,stomach cramps, being sick, walking, stopping,and being overtaken by what seemed at the time to be every runner in the race, indeed it felt like i was going backwards at times lol & the last half a mile was right through the middle of salisbury town center by which time my chin was stuck to my chest! god knows what i must have looked like
thats the first & last time i will try & run the an ultra without walking
