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!
