Shades - definitely is! It's weird that I seem to be stronger on Day 2.

Day 1: 4.54

Day 2: 4.12(!)

PSC - hope you feel better soon! Yeah... I was hanging onto Natty for dear life in that last lap so just tried to give everything that I could... turns out that was it!

Jimbob - it was quite emotional! Those girls are amazing! Even if I did come last overall

I don't mind sending over a new pic - but for me it'll probably be the same as last year!

Morning all,

Another double weekend in Kent and was a hard day on Saturday but better yesterday.

Mamafox - you're welcome. I've made the same mistake with the light and watch. Night blindness isn't fun in the forest!

Shades - I've never heard of that drink. Seems a bit weird to have it sugar free though.

Big G- Similar thoughts to everyone above but I hope that it all goes smoothly. I cant begin to think how your family are coping but i'm sure that they appreciate your support.

Morning all,

TD - Is it possible to use the ones from last year? I think they were on ATM's page?

A lovely weekend with the BCRC girls down in Kent. Another double done and some cracking times and performances from the others!

Sorry to hear about everyone's injuries. I hope everyone recovers soon

Morning all,

Was lovely to see PSC and 5.30 this weekend! Unsurprisingly PSC did not see me at my best as I was on my hands and knees after finishing day 2!

A blustery day on Saturday and a much nicer day yesterday but the wind did start to pick up a bit.

A recovery run this morning and although it started to rain - wasn't too bad.

Weirdest taper madness:

  • Dreams of the race (good and bad)
  • repacking, packing and checking everything three times (as you have obviously forgotten gloves/clothes/gels)
  • Upset stomach
  • Being scared to do the runs in the weeks before in case anything happens
  • Being overly cautious around sick people
  • Obsessing about everything around race day and becoming overly superstitious
  • listening to other people's superstitions.

Heidi - the good thing about bad runs is that you can see how great the good ones are

Orapid - take a look at the Brooks Adrenaline trail versions. They're good for most trail but I wouldn't go fell running in them. This could be me and my paranoia but I hate the 14's. I've been on Brooks adrenaline since #10 but I have a pair of 14's that I hate wearing as they always make my calves ache.

Heather - someone told me when I trained for my first marathon its better to be undertrained and overprepared than overtrained and underprepared. Your body needs to recover fully for running

Talkback: Rave Run: Sydling St.Nicholas Dorset

Fantastic shot! Looks like a great place to run. I think poor Becky looks a little done in - how big was that hill?!
