I pretend to takes lots of photos and videos on my run, for the artistic merit… but really it is for the breather haha
Sunday was a pretty miserable day weather wise, but I had a lot of fun testing out our new Alcohol and Wood Stove, these coupled with our “normal” gas stove means we should have a lot of options for our camping cooking next year and beyond.
Hopefully as spring comes I can start hitting the trails, ways, and fells of the Lakes, Yorkshire, and Northumberland. As I am very excited to get my fastpacking career on the go, not that I have any of the equipment to do it yet!
Who would have thought that Ultramarathon training was a perfect lockdown pastime haha… but still Fuck You lockdown you bag of shite.
I can find marathon training is an absolute slog, but but in a funny way ultra training could be less draining. As anything you do outside, in nature, and moving by your own volition… is training. And I like being outdoors, so this will suit me better hopefully.
I did feel really good on the long run, felt strong and had consistent energy, and pretty much kept to the same pace throughout.
This 17 miler is a really easy trail loop from my home town. I used to do this loop a lot when training for my Bournemouth and Loch Ness Marathons.
I woke up a bit beat up on Sunday, just felt sore all over. Luckily we already planned to get a bit of active recovery in. The more I walked the more my joints were oiled, and I will wake up feeling better on Monday than if I had done nothing today.
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. […]
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.
