The Wall is an Ultramarathon. 69 miles from Carlisle to Gateshead, UK. Race is June 2021.
The training continues.
Training Week 11
After the Virtual London Marathon, I had a week off from running. Just to recover physically and mentally and to put an end to that training block.
Week 11 is basically the start of my true ultra training as I have nothing else planned.
Even though I did no running, I did spend 3 days camping and walking fells in the Lake District. This included Bowscale Tarn and Sale Fell, classed as in the Northern Fells in the Wainwright books.
Really enjoyed the walks and it was the first time this year I was able to get the big Air Tent out of the garage!
Again just easing myself into my ultra training haha. Just 2 midweek short runs, and a longer weekend run.
I have just ordered a running headtorch from Amazon. This will enable me to keep running on my home town trails in the dark depths of winter. Trails are definitely easier on my body, however I will need to make sure I still do road running as a lot of The Wall Ultra is on roads.
To keep things interesting The Wife and I will spend more time over the Lakes running, however, as we will have the dogs. We will have to split the runs over the weekend and camp, eg I will run on the Saturday and The Wife will look after the dogs, camp somewhere on the night. Then vice versa on the Sunday. It will be a good way to keep things interesting I think.
