Hi William- that's really good news about the medal. Gosh- it sounds like I'm a bit hung up about the medal....but I do love my bling!
Dips I really do like your strategy of adopting a run/walk from the outset and I'm aiming to discipline myself to do that There is so much conflicting advice around though- I saw a comment in Trail Magazine from an ultra runner who says something like " Well as we are all going to tire in the second half anyway, we might as well go as fast as possible in the first half of an ultra event! "
I guess we only ever learn through trial and error and what works on one course maybe disastrous on another course !
Re training- I run to - and often from- work. This is really my main way of getting my mileage in. I've been running with my backpack recently to get used to it. I' haven't done much this week - will be 23 miles up until today then a longer run this weekend. I seem to have recovered from Milton Keynes marathon but don't want to push it!
Last lot of shopping this weekend ..and then that's it
*Logs on yet again to the long term weather forecast...*
