Had a grand day in 24C full sun today, 4:29 and 3rd M50, 18th overall out of 120ish.
Chuffed with that for my first time beyond marathon distance. Took 3 brief walk breaks on the final 1-mile climb but apart from that was steady all the way. Last 15k was mostly straight open road and deserted; that part felt tough.


Awesome Winner

I know there are loads of achilles threads on here but i just want to know if it's possible to train through it given the mileage needed for ultras. Or should i just write off the next 6 months and let it heal? Any advice appreciated


How bad you got it?


Not that bad. pain not acute but tendon quite swollen. doing eccentric heel drops etc. seem to be mixed views on internet around running vs rest. Would rather just carry on but don't want to bugger it up permanently


I got it when I switched to lower drop shoes. Got some help from a physio and acupuncture which sorted out the initial problem combined with a couple of weeks with no running or cycling. Gentle ramp up combined with heel drops and other specific exercises.

Hope it improves soon.


Yes i need to cut out forefoot strike i think. Heel drops are helping especially since adding some weight


I've had achilles tendonitis for many years, even before I took up IM, and then Ultra running, seriously. It's amazing what regular calf raises, full squats and a couple of heel cups can do for you! Wink

I have my first 100km run in just over two weeks, the Jurassic Coast 100.

Picked up a bit of a knee niggle during training for VLM, which ended up ruining my race unfortunately. Have been to the physio, and started correction work on the causes.

i thought it had cleared, but it's a bit achey after ~20km on the coast path last night. I'm not too concerned, but i really hope it doesn't throw my whole attempt out. Think i just need to protect it on the descents.

Anyone on here doing the event? I'm setting myself a pretty tough target, but that's half the fun right?! Was out running with the race organiser last night, and he's setting up a 117 miler next year that follows the Two Moors Way. VERY tempted by this, but just can't get my head around what that will actually be like in reality!! Still ... nothing ventured nothing gained eh?!

It's the Hardmoors 200/110 this weekend, can't get into my head why you'd want to run 200 miles, I couldn't be bothered to cycle it!

Live tracking is fascinating Smile

The short 110 starts tomorrow, actually surprised not to see TC on the start list.

Just hope the knee holds GB, I'm sure the mileage won't be a huge problem for you, but you might need a stairlift the day after Smile

Great report as always Repo. You beat my 100 mile PB by 25 minutes. Which obviously means I have to do another one at some point now I know.

Well done Nick.

MartinP told me how OCD you got towards the end of the race.

Good report as per.

Hey everyone, I'm looking for a little nutritional advice.

In a couple of weekends time I'm running Endure24 for the third time. Having been in teams of 6 and 4 I've entered solo this year, which will offer a different set of challenges!

It's a trail course (not very technical) which consists of a single 5 mile loop. My brother will be on hand as support so I'll be able to pick up food and drink from him each lap. The loop consists of 3 hills and I plan to adopt a walk the hills and run/jog the rest from the start strategy , then see how it goes.

Drink wise I'll be taking 500ml each lap (approx 50-60 mins per loop) and will take a few small sips every km or so. I find this usually works best for me rather than holding out and knocking more back in one go.

So onto my nutrition predicament. What should I do? I'm currently thinking of eating a banana and a nut/chocolate based flapjack on each loop. I was also thinking of some sort of pasta and meat meal every so many hours.

What are your thoughts?

The Thames Ring 250 is turning in to a cracking race...

...despite one participant being mugged for his Garmin and headtorch...
