I’ve been busy at work yesterday and today and wasn’t able to get out for a run at lunchtime. I hadn’t planned to run yesterday but wanted to today and knew that I wouldn’t fancy it after a full day out in the sun doing clubgolf.
So I got a bit earlier and ran 6.5miles this morning. It was really good to get it out of the way at the beginning of the day. A very easy pace. I’m planning on running every other day between now and the race.
That feels about right for me. I know some folk don’t run at all for 2-3 weeks before the whw but I couldn’t do that. Like all things ultra running there is no one correct way. Everyone has to find what works for them.
He finished his final one, Ben Hope, this afternoon. Here is a bit from his blog ….
The final climb was taken in bright sunlight to a busy summit.
Spyke touched the trig point at 3:06pm to complete the round of 283 Munros in 39 days, 9 hours and 6 minutes.
A number of glasses of champagne were taken by the company to celebrate his great achievement, and a parcel from previous record holder, Charlie Campbell, containing a bottle of Singleton’s Malt Whisky found buried in the summit cairn was discovered. As Charlie wrote “What can I say but awesome! Many, many congratulations on setting such a fantastic record. Savour the moment, as the Munro memories will last for ever…it takes a singular determination and character to see an enterprise like this through to a successful ending, and you have done that”.
So here is his map with all the Munros in blue. No red ones to do. I wonder what he’ll do tomorrow?
6.53miles in 5mins 38secs (8.23pace)
