Fido, haha, B2B comrades comes under "other ultras" to keep things interesting. Maybe.
I'm up for the spare room if available. Just Coop is nearby too, Ikle a short drive?
Knowing what my pal was like from 70-100 miles , Martin think you may need as many as possible, 3-4 crew, 2-3 of these as pacers especially if someone drops out. I'm assuming they have people doing foot repairs at CPs?
Martin, not sure what you mean by the weekly 5k for speed, but not at pace on the treadmill? I hate treadies, too repetitive impact for me, compared to road or trail.. Everything being hit in same spot.
Oh, bebsen on previous page was Hebden typo on phone. B2b 22 miles mid January with lots of hills. One the event, the other one in group?
No other events you could do in March?
Ikle, you've got quite a few dusk till dawn, and grim reaper type events, that go through the night. you've got the 12 hour version of TR in May also to dip into.
Martin, might be of interest, Post Comrades, I'm limiting carbs, dropping them, on rest days. Gym strength work also helps,( could be at home). 3 lb lost already so will carry on.
Speed session Monday, 2 laps hard (= 1m @ 5k pace), 1 lap easy, to do 4 x 1 m. Too hot out though. Bailed on last lap and just did a 0.5m.
Having fun with my personal trainer (not that type of fun, he's a muscly version of Justin Timberlake), inflicting pain on me. Split squats nasty, but yikes overhead press in a lunge. Quads in agony.
Then made mistake of saying I could go heavier on a lawn mower (bit like a sprinter in blocks but pulling a dumbbell up one side).. Alternating with a timed trial pushing a weighted prowler frame. Boy, did I sleep.
