Finally some sunshine today, instead of snow/rain/hail. Still freezing mind u.

Enjoying the lighter evenings tho, car broke dwn yesterday but fixed now and hubby should b on his way back with it now. Just a pipe that needed replaced £40. But spent another £40 on taxi/bus/train fares. But was all set to run to pilates tonight thinking wouldn't have car so going to do it anyway even tho car back. Will be dark coming home I think but should be nice going.

Have ordered C a couple of pairs of barefoot shoes after Vixo shared post on FB about sale on.

I definitely found my 30mile race easier on the legs than any of the marathons I have done as I had no time expectations really so was happy to walk when needed and there is generally much less tarmac on an ultra, so it is much better on ur joints. Think it is entirely mental too, so u might have only ever run 20miles in training or a marathon but u know u get to a point where u can just keep going. That then transfers into life- u know u can just keep on going. Long distance running and childbirth  are probably the two most empowering things u can do. Both give u a huge amount of confidence in what ur body can achieve and leave u too bl**dy knackered to give a sh!t about the unimportant stuff in life ;0)

I have the Decathlon Kalenji ultra hydration vest and love it, but they rarely have them available online. Don't know how easy they are to get in store

There are far more experienced than me but my advice would be to follow a marathon training plan. Think general advice for most ultras is that don't need training runs over 20-22 miles. For a get u round at a easy pace I would go with that. If u had more time before race and had done an ultra before and wanted to go for a faster race then maybe back to back runs would b a good idea. But for 1st attempt and with no experience of back to backs I wouldn't. Lots of runners on the ultra running FB pages don't do back to backs even for much longer races. Some people just break if they do back to backs too.

Alcohol abuse does awful things to the brain, esp if not eating properly as well. The nutritional deficiencies caused wreak havoc with the drinkers perception of reality and they do actually believe the fantasies.

The annoying thing is u can get apps that apply filters to ur screen to turn off blue light in the evening but u can't get one for iPhone/iPad. I had one on my old phone as it was android and it worked quite well just made screen a little pink in the evening. Tablets/phones etc should come with a switch to toggle it on/off imo esp tablets aimed at children.
