First 100 miler

Posted: 19/10/2014 at 11:29

I'm still at the 50-miler stage- I don't know whether I will ever move on to 100 milers, but, like peronel- I'd love to hear more!

Hope you are feeling better today, booktrunk.

Hey- you've had a tough year, your body is probably a bit beat up just now, and you need to recuperate- lots of TLC/ rest/ vitamins. you'll come back stronger after a proper rest.

Onwards and upwards!

New to Running - Advice Pls

The main risk of pushing yourself hard in the first few weeks is that your heart and lungs improve quicker thatn the mucles/ joints/ bones in your legs, - it is easy to give yourself a leg injury by over- doing it, and at 6 weeks in, you're crocked. By all means keep going with the C25k, but don't strive for a PB every time you go out- slow and steady wins the race!

Why not do a park run every month or so, rather than every week? - otherwise you'll just have a nother few days of being knackered after the event, and you'll not be able to keep doing that regularly without damaging your self.

You can always offer to volunteer at the parkruns too- beingpart of the park run "family" will keep you enthused, as well as doing the runs.

Good work so far- keep it up!

Elspeth- will I see you at Glen Ogle?- I'm aiming for a pleasant bimble around at the back of the field= I have'nt run more than 5 miles since the CS 40, and have a recovering calf tear, and a stiff knee( produced by the funny gait I adopted to compensate for the calf, I think).

Hoping to manage a short run at Strathy park tomorrow- my OH is going there anyway for a meeting, so may as well give it a try, but I am abit unsure about hills! ( Not an especially good position to be in when the next race is a hilly one!)

Go Steph!! Will be watching the live tracker over the weekend. ( Whilst I slob on the sofa..............blame slow recovery from my last ultra, merging seamlessly into tapering for the next one!)

To treadmill or not to treadmill

As someone mentioned above-use about 1 degree incline, or it doesn't feel like you are actually doing anything. It is definately better then doing nothing, and if you get tuned into a film or something, you can get a decent LSR in, and harlfy notice it. Nowhere near as enjoyable as running outside, but better than slobbing on the sofa!


Help!! Cramp or Tear - Am I done?!

Well done on getting round without further damage- now rest it properly, and see a physio to get it looked proerly/ get stretches/strenghteneing excercises.

Glad it was all worth while

Yup- in the Fling too- although I struggled a bit with the payment page, which crashed. Looks like over 700 places gone already.

OK- so that's the next 6 months running sorted out.

Thanks for the heads up about Glencoe marathon- didn't think of that one.

Wow- Kenyyan-see you at the G033 then.........I'll be the cautious one at the back with a dodgy knee, and no recent trainig except the CS40 to rely on!

Watching the clock tick down towards fling entries.

And..............I have further confession- I seem to have "accidentally" entered the Fort William marathon- I was just looking at the website, and somehow now I've entered- so looks like I won't be doing CS40 next year, as the 2 races are likely to clash.

So next year;LK mara; Fling,?? strathearn mara; FW marathon- then what? MAybe LN mara again? Not sure yet- I think 3 ultras is too much, hence the trail mara.

Other Ultras I haven't tried but might think about- RAW, Kintyre way, ..........and then there's the Cape wrath week..................Oh, decisions, decisions

And still waiting to hear whether Audrey is going to organise one.

My knees are never going to survive all this, and that's without ever leaving scotland!
