Too true T, the one foot in one foot out technique is not good for your gait.

My race review from last year if anyone's interested


Thames Path 100

Yes Fido that was about half a mile from the finish. Nice bit of path, I was in bloody agony right there lol.

I personally don't practice walking but knowing I can power walk 30 mile if need be can come in handy. That's because I've had too on more than one occasion.

I live in hope of getting a 100mile pb but I know everything will have to go perfect on the day. This race definitely has pb potential!

I'm in for my 4th running of this one.

We had a good time in 2012 Ben.

Horizontal sleet and rain for hours on end, you being so cold that when someone handed you a cuppa soup most of it shot everywhere but your mouth due to uncontrollable shaking and beating the race being called off by about 10 mins. Called off because people were being hospitalised!

Ahh happy days


Trainer advise for an ultra

Posted: 29/07/2014 at 21:16

 If the weather stays as it has been there aren't many trails in the uk you require a trail shoe. I've run a couple of ultras in my roadies this year no problem.

In fact a lot of trail shoes would be totally unsuitable.

Enjoyed the event Ian. I enjoy two loops, its a good way of pacing the second half.

Really nice to hear all the profits go to a worthy charity.

Might just come back next year.

Manual labour, running a business, training, racing.

Yep I love my sleep!

I fall asleep within seconds of my head hitting the pillow.

You should try it Tiago, its my second favourite thing after...........
