The Wall Ultra 2021 – London Marathon & Training Week 10

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

The training continues.

Review

At the beginning of the year (2020) I planned on doing very little running and definitely no marathons, and I was going to spend most of my time in the gym making gainz haha. Then Heather signed up for the Loch Ness marathon, so I decided to help her out with her training. Then covid happened, and I reassessed what it means to be a healthy human. So I ditched the gym, and got back into running and hiking. Then I signed up for an Ultra, and next year I am going on fastpacking adventures. Funny how things evolve!

Anyway, back to the present. Heather’s dream of doing the Loch Ness marathon, was dashed for obvious reasons but she didn’t just sack it off and spend the rest of the year on the couch. She stuck out the training, in the hope an opportunity would present itself.

And it did. The London Marathon put on a virtual event. So we did that together and she did amazingly well. We got lucky with the weather, and we had a really nice day out. Just pottering about in nature, we turned the sound off on Strava and the London Marathon app and just enjoyed a tootle. So good.

So considering I planned on doing very little running this year, I ticked off my 3rd marathon, signed up for a ultramarathon in 2021, and have started building my kit list for multiday fast hikes.

Weird.
