Toby you lean mean running machine you !!! We are definatly doing an ultra together!!! When I pop up in December we are talking ultra runs !! And which one to do !!!
Well my first venture into the sport of slippy slidy mud running was bloody great fun, I loved every min of it , I don't think I stopped laughing, I came back covered from head to toe in mud and cow poo I may add, we ran over chipping sodbury marsh, and through a farm yard !!! Was like being at Glastonbury!!! The playing of the last post and two mins silence were a lovely touch as they always run it on remembrance Sunday ....I'm so going back to do it next year !!! Let's just say it was my slowest time for 10 miles 1:57 but I wasn't worried about time, you had to stop and wait your turn through the two sheep dips and one pig trough which you slid on your bum into !! With 1300 runners it churned the whole way up lovely !! Entries open in May, and are sold out within a week, you've so got to give this one a go, it's a bargain at £17 got a lovely technical t shirt and a goody bag , banana and water no medal though as the t shirt was the memento they mention but it's a good one !!!
Very tempted to do the Brooks hell down south run on 17th January next year too, anyone want to join me go on you tube and look up Brooks hell series and click on south, it's run on an army training ground in Hampshire ....
Hope everyone is still loving their running cos I know I am right now ....marathon training soon to kick in for London and 10 km at brighton too ...woop woop
