You don't want to be going over 40 hours Seren, isn't that the cut off. 70 miles is big, my biggest week is around that but they're few and far between. 40 is my sweet spot, although I have managed a 54 mile training run.

Ah, it all depends. I had ITB issues last year and found swimming aggravated it slightly (especially when pushing off). But if it doesn't hurt then fill your boots. You'll get around, even if injured, with enough spirit.

Defeat is not defeat unless accepted as a reality-in your own mind.

I'd cancel this weeks running if it's still pulling. It's top end speed you'll lose, if anything, and that won't even factor in the race. I don't think there's any real need to taper for these events either so as long as you're rested for three days beforehand you're good to go. I can almost guarantee that by the end of May at least 50% of those at the start line will be carrying a niggle in some shape or another.

Squats, and single leg dead lifts (eccentric) help a lot in balancing up all your moving parts Dank.

I think it's probably about 4 miles longer. Free miles, good eh? You don't get that sort of awesomeness from road marathon organisers.

Thanks for the course review Seren; that's certainly not one I fancy. There Llanwono HM route is great though - all trail. It was my anniversary anyway so couldn't do it; although I did take Thursday off to do the Taith Torfaen route. It's a brilliant route, if not a bit brutal!

Round 1 was pretty cheeky. Ground conditions to CP1 had me really questioning my footwear choice (real bad decision to wear worn trailroc's), thankfully it got slightly better. We all got a bit buffeted by the wind which was relentless on the Waun Fach ridgeway and then a heap more clag to the finish. A great day out on the welsh hills, the adversity in wicked conditions certainly amplify the achievement.
