Aim was to start nice and slowly, building through race and finishing strongly. Went into race saying happy with sub 12hr, very happy with sub 11hr and over the moon with 10:30ish. Race plan worked perfectly and managed to overtake 25 people in last 25km to finish in 77th place in 10:46:31. Full race report on www.ultrarun.in.
Homeward leg of road trip and decided to break drive up with a late lunchtime run around Clumber Park. Stunning day and landscape and really quiet once you got away from the tourist hotspots. Got carried away and ended up slightly further away from the car than planned, so had to hot foot it back. 24 °C, 0km/h ESE, 44%
Norfolk 100km Ultra Marathon. I had nutrition issues pretty much from the off that didn't ease until 70km and had me in a real dark place but bounced back to finish strongly. The 7km unrunable shingle bank at 80km has to be a lowlight but a challenge in its own right. Today was all about finishing and not a time or a place, that said I honestly didn't expect to make it and am still shocked I did after the illness off last few months and lack of training. The human body is an amazing machine!
