5 days to go……


Today was the last longish run before the Ultra, an easy paced 10 mile run. The only other running I will be doing in the coming week will be a 3-4 mile run on Tuesday and a 2-3 mile run on Wednesday.

As I am only doing the 50 mile run I will not be able to get my hands on the NDW100 24hour belt buckle, but there is always next year….

I was looking at some of the statistics that I have built up since I started running properly in Feb 2011 and thought I would share them with everyone, so here they are:

February 2011 to August 2012

Miles Run: 1280.02, that’s like going from Lands End to John o’Groats (838 miles on the roads) and still having enough to get back to London!!

Total Time: 205:05:24.74, or 8 and half days

Total Calories: 161740, or 330 Big Mac’s

Total Ascent: 71389..341 Meters, or the equivalent of climbing Mount Everest 8 times.

I am feeling ready for the challenge ahead and I think it has helped for my mental focus having the Olympics on, all those amazing people doing amazing things, you just can’t help but be influenced by them.
