There were 6 of us in our group for our Club tempo run tonight. Davie M took us on a great route which was very hilly. I was feeling quite sluggish for the first mile or two but once we hit the hill it soon woke me up! David Mack was running very strongly and looks like he has recovered quickly from the Fling.
With the Cateran Trail Race just over 9 days away I thought I should open up my ‘Guess My Time’ Competition. I did consider not doing it for this race as I’m treating it as a training/preparation run for the whw but I’ve done the competition for all 11 ultra’s that I’ve done in the last four years and didn’t want to stop the sequence!
So normal rules apply … all you need to do is send your guess in hours/minutes/seconds how long you think it will take me to run the 55miles.
To help you here are some points to consider ….
# I’ve never been on the route before so there is potential for getting lost and losing time??
# I’m treating it as a good solid training run and my plan is to try and run the 55miles as if it was the first 55miles of the whw.
# I ran the 53mile Fling a couple of weeks ago in 10hrs 14mins …. I want to be slower than that!
# I’ll be taking my camera to do a video diary of the day. How much time will that add on?
# I’m not taking any splits or target times so your guess is as good as mine!
