Wow- underestimated the difficulty of the terrain on the inversnaid- beinglas section of whw. I was out for just over 4.5 hours, but only covered 13miles!. So more of a long slow scramble than a run, but really using a lot of different muscles to scramble over rocks/fallen trees etc, and huge amount of concentration needed to avoid injury.
Much more fun than last week's LSR.
Well done to those doing more conventional long runs! I'm not sure where the ideal balance lies between trainig runs on the course, which are bound ot be slow, versus "normal" long runs on flatter ground. Tricky.
Well done on the mid- run Ward round, OH- I struggle with fitting runnin garound work, and that's certainly one approach, which I amy revert to now that daylight is getting longer- running to and from work certainly helps the weekly mileage.
Running in Iceland will be amazing- enjoy.
