Great news Howard. Congrats.

Wabo. Hello stranger.

Ikle... Don't rush on the report, I've still not finished mine.

Not fun running last night, very sticky and lots of midges.. Hard to breath and had to take longer recoveries. Is it similar around the country? Think you guys have it even warmer?

Perfect. I do 21/1:30-2 .. Definitely works.

Ikle will you be doing a race report?

With a Big Mac slow duck soon after?

Fido, not heard about Lpool- Manchester ultra, is that on here as a thread? but managed trail, probably the canal paths? Light muddy, bit of gravel, similar to Glasgow to Edinburgh I expect. There are Manchester to Yorkshire versions in April 50/75/100k.

Someone mentioned to Bernard Gommersall they were trying to do London to Brighton road race also.

Hey 2old, I did shout Dan/ 2Old at you, mile 24 water station.. You did look confused so maybe in the zone.
Cracking time.

Hopefully we helped a few others too.

Seemed a ridiculous amount of sports drinks, one sip then chucked. Terrible waste.

Certainly not confident enough to think I would finish whilst in the pens but 30-40k in just relaxed. Really flowed and spent rest of racing smiling and laughing.

Lowrez I did see your pink Floyd top at R&R, commented to someone about it. I'm on the Wirral, it was Wallasey AC manning the water station. I've done Ellesmere port before but it's father's day. Maybe penny lane after though.

I'm very tempted to do Comrades again but not 100% yet. Got my back to back medal, still want a BR but not my entire purpose for this race... It's just a phenomenal experience. It changes you. Some targets for the winter then make a decision.

Lowrez was that you I shouted hello comrade at R&R? Our club were on the water station at mile 24. Two runners with Comrades tops on, one a 2015 male, one a female 2014.

Route didn't look too bad, not hilly, Maybe cumulative damage catching you? My legs certainly aren't 100% right yet, Patricia similar I think. Toes and nails... Loved the ice cream torch though.

Did manage to get a tan. Nothing in SA..5 hours in UK with sunblock on. Funny.

Well done Ikle. You got so close to 50 miles, near as makes no difference. Rubbish no medals. Did you not enjoy it?

Susan, great run. Hills and all. Well done to your friend too.

Howard, sounds like a good plan.

Martin, have a great day. Chatting to a pal tonight, he ran R&R Lpool on 10 miles max run the last 2 months. Finished okay, but 20-30 minutes off what he could do. He quite proudly told me he didn't walk, but confused when I told him he could've gone faster if he had taken regular walking breaks. You know the drill though, you will be fine.

6 miles for me tonight, left leg a little tight still but much improved. Tens machine has helped speed things up doing massage every couple of days.

Good luck Ikle doing her 12 hr race tomorrow from 7pm to 7am. I'm expecting sensible race plan and run walk strategy from the start.. Hopefully a bucket load of food too.

Managed a good 7mile run last night, mostly pacing friends around doing their 1km intervals and taking long recoveries when I didn't want to push it too fast. Foam roll after.
Just whizzing my calf with tens machine, and then onto massage setting. Tickly but great thing to have for ??12.
No running this weekend, on water station for rock and roll Liverpool marathon & half.

Quick drop in to say hello, ... Admittedly a bit late, but big overlap with Facebook now. Facebook doesn't have the reports though.

Will read back everyone's reports, see I'm mentioned above in McHillys. Doesn't seem that long ago I was sat with Lorenzo at the airport on way back.

Feeling a bit of Comrades blues but still buzzing. The most fantastic race in the world.
