The Wall Ultramarathon 2021

The Wall 2021 Ultra Training – week 7, GNRsolo, & Great North Run Virtual

The Wall is an Ultramarathon. 69 miles from Carlisle to Gateshead, UK. Race is June 2021.

The training continues.

The Wife was meant to do the Great North Run proper this weekend, an event she is obsessed with. However for obvious reasons she couldn’t do it.

However I must say they put on 2 excellent virtual events to try to make up for it.

Firstly the did the GNRsolo. Where you had to do 40 runs in 78 days to mark their 40th anniversary. There were no limits on distance or times, so you could have just done 40 * 1 miles runs which would have less than an hour a week. So it was something everyone could do, and very hard to fail. You just had to get out of the house 4 times a week. It was a good opportunity to build commitment and consistency.

They did reward distances with different coloured medals though, we ended up doing around 240 miles. Which was a silver medal.

Then on what would have been the actual GNR day they did a virtual GNRreimagined race. Where you could download an app, and they played you motivational GNR sounds and voices around your chosen route.

If it wasn’t for the fact that is was a virtual event, I wouldn’t have ran due to a calf injured. But I took the risk and just about got away with it. I think I will give is a weeks rest now, and do lots of bike rides this week instead.

It was probably the one and only time The Wife and I could run together at GNR, as I am normally on Dog and Driving duties haha.
