Good luck in the Jurassic county Millsy!

Sounds a good start to the day Scott. Sets you up well to surge for some drinks later.

I don't know about my kids, but 'll be seeing the Minions Slowkoala, the trailers look brilliant.

Good week so far, with a 6 Mon, 10 Tues, 6 Wed & 10 with hills last night. Trying to work out my 18 miler route for tomorrow to take in the Parkrun too. Looking to hit about 60 by Sunday night

Have you got a battle car Westy from your concrete block incident?

Scott, you just needed a swim and that is triathlon territory!

Just waiting on Manchester to confirm the date for the marathon next April, then I'll be going for the early doors entry. Anyone else doing Manchester? Sounds like a lot on here are going for GFA in London.

wannabe ultra runner?

Posted: 23/06/2015 at 13:45

Hi guys, thought I'd drop in here as a wannabe Ultra runners to get some tips! I've signed up as a solo runner for the Equinox 24 which is a 24 hour race in September. The idea being you try and run as many 6 mile laps in 24 hours. I did this as part of a small team last year and did 7 laps.

Bit of background, I've done 8 marathons, plus the above race last year. I've been averaging mid 40's for the past few weeks, with 50 miles last week so starting to increase the mileage. I did my first back to back weekend runs this weekend with 11 on Saturday & 16 on Sunday. Any tips or training programs that are good to follow? I'm looking to follow the P&D for my next marathon in April and wondered if there were parts of that which might be relevant - do you keep up speed work/tempo runs? Thanks.

Well done on the PB Madbee. Maybe not the time you wanted, but still a PB. Conditions sounded tough with the wind. I think you can prepare for sun, cold & rain, but wind seem one of those variables that can put a spanner in the works.

Jalfrezi and Stellas is a good combination Macca!

Well done on the 10k PB Macca and 5k PB Scott - great efforts. And congrats too to Slowkoala on a Parkrun PB, especially with a bug too!

Shame the race didn't go to plan Madbee - still good positions though.

Thanks for the info Tricialitt, I'll look out for that thread.You have some good endurance off a low (ish) weekly mileage. I think the time limit race is a way of entering into the Ultra race environment and there will be some good things to learn from it. Another goos thing is,it is multiple laps and we can leave food drinks etc at our tent, so don't have to carry it all the time (albeit a small amount).

First weekend of back to back long runs with 11 yesterday morning and 16 this afternoon giving me 50 for the week. The idea being I build this up over the coming weeks and increase the mileage accordingly. I did 5 (and a bit) x 3 mile laps of the local park to replicate multiple laps monotony.

Didn't have much sleep last night as we were camping, so didn't feel like my long run today, but thought about the sleep deprivation like you mention Tricialitt and gave it   a go and will do this again as some point during the night to get used to midnight running.

Had a great Fathers Day present today - the P&D book. So lots of reading to do now!

Make sure you have slated crisps too Millsy as part of your carb loading weekend!

Sounds a good session 15West

I normally take a gel just before the start of a half. I think if you mini carb load and hydrate properly before the race you shouldn;t really need one. Marathons i tend to take about 5 - 2 of those the caffine ones.

8 miles last night with 6 x 400m hill reps.

Brilliant PB there Ferg!

Macca - A midnight marathon? Sounds very intriguing

You've got some impressive PB's Scott

Ferg, I'm glad I'm not the only one with pre race exit strategies (poo routine!). I quite like evening races as I do most of my training at night. I think it must that I have a full day of eating/hydrating behind me (agree with you there Lit).

LadyfunRun - The thunder run is very popular and fills up really quick. Theone I'm doing is the Equinox 24 in Leicestershire. It looks like it is gaining in popularity too. Shame the trail race didn't go to plan.

Which July mara are you doing Macca?

I think you could be right there Madbee about slowing down. I was reading about last years winners and he said how much he had to slow down in training and racing.

5 mile lactate clear out run tonight - I like this session!

Sounds like you enjoyed yourself NE even though you had an off day. You'll beat those rivals next time.

Thanks for explaining Lit - that sounds a tough experience with not much rest, made up for with the cake at the end though.

Entered my 24 hour race last night, now I've got to get some miles in. Anyone got tips on Ultra running / training?
