FWo - Thanks for the reply.  I've got that book and had a look at the 100 mile plan which is straight forward.  I've also got another training plan which I'll loosely follow as well.

I'll be doing at least two marathons and two 50 mile ultras in the build up so will have plenty of time to test out kit etc.

I've only ever ran as far as 50 miles in a race so I'm looking forward to seeing if my body will be able to cope with the ridiculous distance.

I've managed to get myself a place through the ballot for next year

For anyone who has done this race before, what did your weekly training plan look like, mileage, long run distance etc?

I'm doing it unsupported as I don't think I'll be able to get a crew together to support me, obviously I realise having a crew would be beneficial but have many people done it unsupported and how did you get on?

I had a look and thought it was overpriced for a 50 miler.  As Millsy said the Centurion races are very well ran and cost half as much.

About 10 mins ago I picked up an email saying my VLM application was now accepted, so I filled in the form and coughed up my 35 quid: I have race number 762. Exciting!

Same batch as me. #769 here.  Fancy doing a race as a training run this weekend. Gosport & St Neots halves are both full. Anyone got any ideas? Half to marathon distance, road or trail. 

The A20 Path 'n Downs Half + marathon is this weekend.  Never done it myself but I've heard good things about it

The flat screen t.v in my lounge doesn't have HD, the one in my new kitchen diner does, I can't decide which one to watch.

There's no need to brag about it

Talkback: Diet cola and running: Harmless or hurtful?

I like diet coke but it has to be ice cold.  I prefer coke zero given the choice, I used to drink around 6 cans of full fat coke daily but the taste and furry feeling it leaves in your mouth puts me off.

Diet Irn-Bru is an interesting one, it's better with a very large vodka.

Stevie G - No problem.  I was a bit worried my post came across in the wrong context but glad it didn't.

I hope my post didn't come across as me in any way implying that my coach is wrong or I doubt his methods, that most definitely isn't the case.  I'm just having a extended dip in motivation, confidence, enthusiasm and form which is entirely me.

Personally I benefit from having a sounding board for my training and having someone with far superior knowledge on hand to plan out my training and answer any questions I have.

I hope to pick up again with him when I've got myself in a place where I have a clear goal in mind.
