Having another pair of shoes available is a pretty good plan. If you need them you just need to make sure you push on!!!

Well done on the speedy mile. That's a great time and whether it's slower or faster than other folk doesn't really matter - it's the effort you put in and the eventual results that you (hopefully) get!

Enjoy your run. Look forward to hearing how it goes

Hey Daffs. I commented on your long run but it seems to have disappeared into the Bermuda Triangle!!!   Anyway, good run and well done for sticking with it, esp with the whacky changes of weather!

Tbh if the new shoes are a different model to what you've run in before I'd lean towards building up the mileage in them rather than jump to longer runs.  That said, if your old shoes are very worn then it's a toss up what could be worse.  The crushed limestone is likely to be more forgiving a surface and tbh you've still enough time to get plenty of mileage in on the roads.  Is the trail run the prettier one?  I'd say go for the one you fancy running on more .  Get the mileage in and enjoy it

Right, now I need to see if my garmin has enough charge for me to actually get out on the run that I tried to set off on 45 mins ago!!!  Duh!

Now's definitely the time to be getting new road shoes, though if you're getting the same shoe there'll hopefully not be too much running in to do.

What's the course like at Chester?  Is it a flat one?  Even if it is it would be good to do some hilly stuff in training.  The more hills you do the easier you'll find the flat stuff.

If you think you'll struggle to get that 17 miler in when you're on hols (and I can understand that!) then I'd be tempted to swap weeks.  It does mean an extra 'effort' week before you cut back but I think you'd be ok with that.

Well done Daffs. Sounds like a great run and good progress.   Sounds like the route could be a good basis for long runs - though it'd be better not to do all your long runs on the same route, esp as it's off-road.  You'll need to get road runs in there too.

What's the plan for this week?

I'd be tempted to do a swim or bike leg? Need to keep repeating the mantra that I'm not going long next year........

You can take my place in UltraKaz's team If you like, TE?

Sadly won't be able to make it next year as it clashes with Lakeland 100. Gutted, as I had an ace time this year, and it also means I'll not be able to see Littleclown complete her first full distance 

I've got a run spot on a team now so am 'off the market' so to speak

Ooh, someone is hot property!

 

Or a teams desperate.

(better be careful someone doesn't get precious and accuse me of jumping onto a bandwagon)

it could be that too!

First 100 miler

TP100 entered for me too.  My first thought this morning was "I had this really odd dream that I entered TP100".  My second thought was "oh sh*t"
