Friday 5th May

Last week was really only the '100' and recovery from it. Monday was spent comatose from lack of sleep. My feet were still painful on Tuesday & Wedensday but by last night, once I got the tape off and punctured the large blisters on my heels things were much better. We got a number of things right on the '100', especially on the first day - eating and drinking regularly. Shoe choice was proabably impossible - road shoes were needed for the cushioning but wouldn't have been to good on the roughest ground (no-one else selected road shoes either). Not eating frequently enough was nearly our undoing on the second day but eating and drinking enough at the 85 mile CP provided a complete recovery and that shouldn't be forgotten.

Last Week
Miles: 105 Feet: 13800

Next Week
Long run over Winter Hill on Saturday before Belmont Winter Hill race which I shall enjoy as a spectator. BGR Leg 3 on Sunday. This marks a change in planning as it is an attempt to see if a schedule faster than 23 hours might be achievable. Until now I have always run legs with other people, primarily to learn the route and to improve my fitness, now I will start to pay much more attention to the schedule. I will also try a couple of morning runs to keep the mileage up.
