Rules on 'self supported'

Posted: 15/12/2014 at 19:37

depends on the race directors rules, for the t184 we wasnt allowed to buy stuff and was given water every 25 miles but you could use canal taps, you wasnt allowed to share kit, you had to carry all the kit you would use for the event in your pack. an unsupported race of 50 miles is very different to one of 100 miles or more so its obvious to me that different rules for different events would be the right thing to do

i was on the verge of doing it but bottled it, got a couple of friends that are doing it, the loops wont be any problem for them - they are used to doing 1.1 mile loops round the enduroman course at avon tyrrell. they dont need luck, they need a labotomy

Are ultra runners fast or plodders?

imo if your hip flexors hurt - strengthen them, and see what hurts next and strengthen that body part, no good having great quads if another body part is weak, strong chain / weakest link and all that


Bigger/new bike or not?

i did a 100 miler , 2 x80 and a few 50s on the bike and probably did the same running, cant remember if the sdw100 was 2 weeks before the double or after it - either way it was my first 100 run - cycling is over rated - it makes your arse sore and you look a twat when you try to walk in cleats. ironman is so last year - all the cool people are baking these days

oh i did some swimming too but dont tell my friends - they will disown me

i will be using the WAA (mds) pack, i like the bottle up front, the side pockets also move round the front or slide to the back - so many packs have them positioned to far back it makes getting into them awkward.. the front pouch also counter balances the weight in the back which why it seems lighter when you put it on. i didnt show you half the stuff either - the bottle holders are adjustable on the straps, you get 4 bottle holders but i only had 2 - you can put another 2 on the front pouch or at the sides of the pack. its a versatile bit of kit with so much adjustability its hard to find an argument for another pack. IF i was to choose another pack it would be the raidlight olmo 20 but by the time you buy the front pouch for it, its almost as expensive as the WAA pack. the WAA also comes with a poncho type thing which is great if its just showers, you can put it on without taking your pack off - havea look on youtube or google some reviews i bet its on there somewhere. also comes with a waterproof pack cover. the downside it that the bottles that come with it are shite but thats an easy remedy. The raidlight olmo pack is lighter but doesnt look/feel so well made, another one to condsider is the montaine ones
